My great great great grandparents are George W Mathis/Mathews and his wife Frances Elizabeth Moore Mathis/Mathews. They had a child David W Mathis/Mathews living with them in the 1850 Federal Census. They were living it Polk County TN next door to Nathaniel and Nancy Mathis/Mathews. That Census year their last names were spelled Mathews.

George W Mathis/Mathews and Frances Elizabeth moved to Fannin County GA around the 1860's. David W Mathis/Mathews married Rachel Dilbeck. They had a son name Thomas Franklin Mathews. He married Clearsey Jane Hice. Their son Thomas McKinley Mathews married Millie Lee Gibson.

Their son Eugene Robert Matthews married Brenda Kay Hamby. I Stephen Shane Matthews belong to them.

I am trying to trace my roots as far as I can go back. I am at a road block. I don't know if Nathaniel and Nancy are the parents of George Washington Mathews/Mathis. I do know that Nathaniel Mathews/Mathis was born in NC around 1795 and Nancy was born around 1800 in NC. but I am not for certian about Nancy's maiden name nor do I know if they are related to GeorgeW.

Thank you so much for your time.
