Yes he is my great grandfather also. He was married to Unity (Hattie) Kent and they had several children. My grandmother was one of them. Martha Suan Matthias. I also have heard the story of the yellow fever and when Martha Susan was 2 years old, she and Wm Porter Matthias traveled to Ragley, Panola county to work as a farmer. There he met Ellen and married her. Ellen's brother, John Edward Chesley Stanley married Martha Susan Matthias, my grandparents. Wm's parents were John and Martha Matthias. That is as far as I got with that line in the family. I would love to chat with you. We live in Englewood, Fla, just south of Sarasota. My email is [email protected] I have one brother living in Canada, Fred. I also had a younger brother, John Steward (Jay) who passed away last Feb. Please get in touch with me and I would be glad to share whatever I have with you. Thanks for getting in touch with me.
