Parents of Morgan L Mathewson - Selinda and Oliver Mathewson

+2 votes
I have looked in Providence Rhode Island,and  Otsego , Broome. Wayne,  Chenango  Counties in New york State.  Wyoming and Bradford Counties in Pa.

Morgan Lewis Mathewson was born in 1806-1808 in Chenango County New York. One reference said Munnsville, Madison County, NY

Death cerificate(1889) says his parents were Oliver and Selinda Mathewson. A newspaper story says his father was Lewis ? (1916 written by granddaughter Carrie Mathewson)

Newspaper story says his first cousin was William Mathewson of Lisle and his second cousin was Charles Mathewson of Lisle , Broome County , NY . They were both married to the same woman, Elizabeth Stickney.

All the people associated with Morgan point to Selinda Matthewson born in 1782 to Daniel Matthewson  brother of Winchester Mathewson as being Morgans mother but I have zer documentation and have no idea if the father was Oliver Materson of Otsego County, Oliver Lewis of Dutchess County or Lewis Oliver  of Rhode Island.

Morgan's wife was Amanda Crosby born in Hartwick , NY . She was a cousin of Fanny Crosby the hymn writter who also had a step brother named Morgan Lewis Townsend born the nbame year as my Morgan .

Please help me :)
