MATHERS posted by Marta Hurst on Saturday, February 21, 1998

Looking for information/relatives of the MATHERS line that lived during 1820's-1850's in Belmont County, Ohio, and some of whom later moved to Buchanan County, Missouri about 1840's. During 1830's there were several MATHERS living in Belmont and adjoining counties of Jefferson, Harrison, and Columbiana -- I believe they were all from the same family and arrived in Ohio from Pennsylvania in the early 1800's. Heads of Households listed in the 1830 census for these four counties were only: Charles MATHERS, Rebecca MATHERS, James MATHERS, Robert MATHERS, John MATHERS, and William MATHERS -- William MATHERS and his wife Mary were originally from Pennsylvania and show up first in the 1830 Belmont census. By 1850 they have moved to Buchanan County, Missouri where their daughter, Sarah b. abt 1843 in Ohio, married into one of my family branches. William joinned two other MATHERS families who are listed as moving from Belmont County, Ohio in the 1840's to Buchanan County, Missouri, Joseph MATHERS and James MATHERS b. 1800 (who brought his sister Eliza b. 1820, my great-great-grandmother). I believe the James and his sister Eliza MATHERS that are my line may have been the children of the James MATHERS, b. abt 1760-1770, listed as living in Harrison County, Ohio in the 1830 census, or Charles MATHERS b. abt. 1760-1770 listed as living in Jefferson County in 1830, or John MATHERS b. abt. 1770-1780 living in Columbiana County in 1830 -- all had a son and daughter in the right age range. William's daughter, Sarah, later married a son of Eliza's in Missouri. I believe all these families were all related and moved from State to State together. Any information on these MATHERS families would be very much appreciated! Thanks!
