      There is a "Matthews Family" cemetery located in a field in Chatham Co. Nc. Along with 16 unmarked graves are gravestones for:
      1. Susannah, Mother of Wm. Matthews, 16 May 1791-28 Sep 1847.
      2. Wm. Matthews, 17 Jan 1787- 7 Sep 1846 60yr, 7mo, 21day.
      3. C. M. 1781.
      I wonder if they could be part of the family you are researching. I am searching for parents of Ruth L. Matthews b. c1815. She m. David M. McMasters in Randolph Co. 17 Sept 1835.

      I have never been to the cemetery. Recently my cousin sent me the info she found in a book listing cemeteries in either Randolph or Chatham County, I believe. She thought these were candidates for the parents of our Ruth Matthews. The photocopy she sent me does not have name of the book, but I can find out if you like. The listing goes as follows:
      MATTHEWS FAMILY CEMETERY- This Chatham County Cemetery is located two fields behind 2550 Old Coeridge Road (SR 1104), Siler City, Nc. Bobby Braxton is renting the house from Mrs. Paul Gilbert of Greensboro, Nc. When you reach the second field behind the house, go around to the left, about mid-way of the field. The cemetery is about .3 mile back of the house. There is an old wire fence on one side of the cemetery. There are 16 unmarked graves. The Matthews family owned land in both counties.
      SUSANAH, Mother of Wm. Matthews, 16 May 1791- 28 Sep 1847
      Wm. Matthews, 17 Jan 1787-7 Sep 1847, 60 yr, 7 mo, 21 day
      C. M. 1781
      Read 19 Feb 2001 by Bobby Braxton and Laverne Brady Davis.
