Birth: 1725, Ireland
Death: 1812
Rock Hill
York County
South Carolina, USA

For several years researchers had added James to Matthew's name. Another cousin Dala ask me some years ago had I ever seen James in any records. As of this date 2012 I have not found any court, land or census that shows James as a name for Matthew. J Rogers.

Matthew married Mary Kelso/Kelsey Cooper November 1762 in Salem, New Jersey.

Matthew Amberson, Sr. was born in Ireland arrived in New Jersey before 1760 and moved to Pennsylvania by 1763.
Information in letter to Dr. Draper shows that the elder William with his family went on to Pittsburgh "by 1763" (when William Jr. turned 8), while Frances had "made improvements in Amberson Valley by 1763." It explains better what Mathew "Emberson" was doing on Back Creek, just a few miles further up the Potomac River from Amberson Valley.

Matthew and Mary had the following children:
Daughter b 1763;
Nancy Agnes;
Mathew Jr.;
