Adelphia "Delphia" Leggitt Matthews
Birth: Jul. 18, 1778
Death: Apr. 22, 1850

Adelphia is my 4X gt. grandmother. She was born in N.C. She married George Matthews abt. 1795 and they had eleven children. They were Hiram, John, Hannah, Alfred, Thomas, Calvin, Anna, James, Mary, George Jr., Sidney. She died in Morgan Co. IN. and is buried next to her husband in Centerton Cem. There seems to be some controversy about her name. I have seen it on some research as Philadelphia but on her headstone it says Adelphia and I have been contacted by a distant cousin who thinks it should be Adelphia so I have changed it to that until it can be proven otherwise. Either way I think it is a beautiful name. I see her as a very stong woman who was abandoned by her father who was a British officer during the revolution.He moved to Nova Scotia after the war leaving his wife and daughters in N.C. to survive on their own. She married a devout Quaker and managed to raise eleven children and move west with her family to the frontier of Indiana. Women like her helped make this country what it is today and should never be forgotten.
