Charles Mandeville Andruss (#137659813)
Greetings, Jonathan!

I've noticed that Charles Andruss's name now appears in the Family Links section of the page I created for Gen. Cornelius W. Mandeville, listed as the general's son. This is curious, because Charles' surname is Andruss, not Mandeville. This paternal link to Gen. Mandeville also appears on the page you've created for Charles Andruss, along with a maternal link to the general's wife, Jane Jones Mandeville, who died in 1821. Since Charles Andruss was born in 1838, 17 years after Jane died, she could not possibly have been his mother! While there are reasons why a man may not use the same surname as his father, there does seem to be a mistake here. Perhaps you could look into it.

Best regards,

RE: Mary wife of James M Matteson
There wasn't anything else on the stone but what I posted. But can try to find some information for you about James and Mary, if you would like. Just let me know.

RE: James Matteson
Jonathon, yes we are at least half related! I have RI Greenes in me too so...... This my fathers mothers line. I have a Mathewson( Mathiason) on my moms line too in SC/Ga! It is a hard name to research! I just wonder how find a grave record can give James G. Mathewsons mother and father? I haven't found death records for Rufus, fortunately don't need for the DAR paperwork as he is already listed as a patriot in their database. Just have to link everything up nicely to him! It's been very interesting I have found a lot of information on family search as well as ancestry. It's fun but a time sponge!

James Greene Matthewson. Born 1787, wife. Sybil Waite
Father Rufus Mathewson
Apparently it's a family plot and I did find more information about phone contact so will try that in the morning. I am working on a DAR application for Rufus Mathewson need more vital record documentation. I've seen Mathewson spelled Matteson also!
Thank you for the quick response and I Love that I have seen the gravestones of my grandfathers even if just a photo! Ivy

In Florida right now, but believe this is the cemetery that is located near 186 Valley View Road in Sterling, CT.
