b. c. 1742


Through son John b.c. 1776



A family researcher said in 1939 that Samuel was the son of a Giles Mattix who was born in the Netherlands, perhaps around 1722.  This comes from Nathan Wilson Mattix who wrote out a family tree that began, “Giles Mattix and wife, Mary Mattix, immigrants from Holland before American Revolution settled in New Jersey.  (Six sons served in Revolutionary War.)”  N.W. Mattix is a descendant of Samuel’s son, John b.c. 1776 NJ, which is also my line.  (See D55 below)


In 1778 Giles Mattox was indicted in Sussex Co., NJ.  In 1784, Giles Mattox was involved in a lawsuit there.  Giles Mattax was in the 1793 tax list of New Town, Sussex Co., NJ, along with Samuel & Michael.  I am uncertain if that Giles  is Samuel’s father or son


This family was United Brethren (Moravians), a religion which was fairly popular in the Netherlands, and earlier in Germany.
