Birth: Nov. 24, 1828
Ross County
Ohio, USA
Death: Oct. 23, 1871
Moultrie County
Illinois, USA

Who were the parents of Matilda? Was her maiden name Platter/Plotter or was it Boland? On the death certificates of all of her children her maiden names is listed as Platter or Plotter. I believe that she may have been the daughter of Lewis Platter with mother unknown. Because of the age of Lewis, it is entirely possible for the above case to be so.
The "History of Moultrie Co" says that she was Matilda Boland. Where did that name come from? This is a mystery yet to be uncovered.
