Joseph M. Matthews Sr.

James M. Matthews came to Texas from Sumpter County, Georgia in 1860 leaving his wife
and two children there. He joined the Confederate States Army in 1861 and did not return to
Georgia until 1865, after the Civil War. He returned to Polk County, Texas in 1869 with his
family and settled on 192 acres in the Midway Community.
His first wife was Sarah Jane Waldrep whom he married on December 23, 1856 in Sumpter
County, Ga. Their children were: Martha Jane Matthews, b. 1858; Ada Victoria Matthews, b. 1860;
Joseph Hardy Matthews, b. 1867; and Thomas Jefferson Matthews, b. 1869.
His second wife was a widow, Mrs. Susan Ada (Moss) Sutton whom he married on October 22,
1895 in Polk County. Their children were: William Jennings Bryan Matthews, b. 1895; Joseph M.
Matthews, Jr., b. 1898; Frances Matthews, b. 1901; Thora Matthews, b. 1903; and Dora Matthews,
b. 1905.

Burials in the Matthews Cemetery near the family homestead area were:

Matthews, Joseph Mallie born: Jan. 20, 1831, Sumpter County, Ga.
died: Feb. 19, 1905,
Private, Co. C, 24th Texas Cavalry, Neyland's Regiment; Prisoner of War.
Matthews, William Jennings Bryan born: Sep. 1895 died: ca. 1918 Camden/Polk/Tx.
(No death certificate was issued in Polk County.)

Note: Mrs. Martha Jane (Waldrep) Matthews and Ada Victoria (Matthews) Waldrep were
buried in the Waldrep Cemetery. Joseph H. Matthews and Martha Jane (Matthews) Waldrep
were buried at Center Grove Cemetery. Thomas J. Matthews moved away from the county.

In 1939 a deed was issued that divided the Matthews property among Mrs. Susan Ada
Matthews and her children. Mrs. Matthews had remarried to a Charles Burkhart of Sabine County.
The children were: Joseph M. Matthews of Tyler County; Frances Matthews Howard of Polk
County; Thora Matthews Horn of Jasper County; Dora Matthews Kelly of Sabine County, and L. B.
Matthews of Angelina County, son of William J. B. Matthews, deceased.
