b.c. 1638


Through descendant Matthew b. 1751



There were three Matthews that people often confuse as one Matthew.  Our Matthew was b. 1773, was in the Revolutionary War, lived in Frederick Co., MD and Shenandoah Co., VA, married Rachael Bonnefield, and died 1831 Wood Co., (W)V.  A SECOND Matthew close to the same age, was in Cocke Co., TN, in the late 1700s, was married to Eve Counts/Kuntz, is probably son of Thomas Maddux in Fauquier Co., VA, his children have not been verified, and disappeared before 1800.  A THIRD Matthew was younger than both of them, born 1789, found in Fleming Co., KY, married Dicey Guinn, died 1832 in Fountain Co., IN, and is believed to be the son of Matthew Two above.
