John Hamilton Matthews and his wife, Elizabeth (Baker) Matthews, share this monument at Hillcrest Cemetery, Brighton, Washington County, Iowa. Both born in Ohio, the married couple migrated to Iowa in the 1870s where John continued his trade as "miller." His father Jacob had been a miller in Ohio in Richland and Ashland counties. John's younger brother, Isaac Manford Matthews, also migrated from Ohio to Iowa and was a miller in Keokuk County. --DeeAnna
