The following are from the Bible of William H. Mathis (some records show him as Mathews but his handwritten Bible states Mathis)




William H. Mathis 11-30-1818 Susan R. Russell wife of the above August (?) 1829. This date is written in blue instead of the black ink.

This date doesn't correspond with her obit. He was married again and on his second wife's date of birth he uses Susan's obit date of birth.

I think he got the birth dates of his wives confused. Speculation on my part.

George H. Mathis son of the above Wm. H. and S.R. Mathis 10-18-1840

R.M. (Richard Marion) Mathis 5-1-1842

Martha J. E. (Jane Elizabeth) Mathis 4-14-1844

Jas. (James) A. Mathis 5-24-1845

Wm. (William) H. Mathis 3-7-1847

John L. Mathis 3-3-1849

Franklin S. Mathis, my great grandpa and his birthdate in the Bible differs from his dc) 3-15-1851 (dc says 2-4-1852). Take your pick.
