George Matthews
Date and Place of Birth: April 27, 1770---Maryland
Date and Place of Death: February 17, 1850---Centerton, Indiana, Morgan County
According to the book The Pioneers of Morgan County, George Matthews and three of his sons were the first white settlers to build a cabin in the vicinity of what became the town of Centerton, Indiana. Another book, A brief outline of Morgan County and Local Pioneer History and Reminiscences, places this event in the year 1820. Later, George's son, James, provided in his will for the subdivision of his farm into lots for the establishment of a town. This became the town of Centerton, Indiana. George's son, Hiram, became the first judge in Morgan County.
