Charleston County
South Carolina, USA

Obit: On Saturday last died here Capt. Anthony Mathews, an eminent Merchant & Seller of this Province, who by his Industry, Frugality & Improvement in Mercontil Affairs, acquired one of the greatest Estates in this Country. He first arrived in this Province about the Year 1680. Now near 55 Years since, and died lamented in the 73rd year of his age, and was decently buried on Monday last. But what is observable is, that his Pall was supported by six of the ancient Inhabitants of this Town, hardly one of whom had seen less than 40 Years revolve since their first Arrival in this Province, and whose several ages put together amounted to about 400 years. A sufficient proof, this, that Carolina is not one of the most unhealthy climates on Earth. (Saturday, August 30, 1735)

Wife Lois was alive at the time of his will in August of 1735.
