Any thoughts about this publication:
"The Mathews Family", Cole, J.R. History of Greenbriar County. [Lewisburg, West Virginia: J.R. Cole, 1917] p.69-70
Is it a trustworthy source?
Even without the information from this book, it has become increasingly clear that this particular [[Mathews-1975|William Matthews]] is not the son of John and Anne Matthews. I have added information about the incongruencies to his profile and his wife's.
Additionally, Bill Wright called attention to problems with the profile of the wife [[Wright-1819|Mary Wright]] in both 2011, and 2014, in the research section of her profile.
Before I detach this [[Mathews-1975|William]] as a son of John and Anne and attach a profile for a documented William as a son to John and Anne (based on Cole's book) I am wondering if other folks would be willing take a look at these two profiles, and also provide an opinion about Cole's book.
I found one of my ancestors [[Mathews-167|Richard Matthes]] attached to this couple and to a son William of this couple and detached him from both because this undocumented line is not trustworthy. Mary
