Matthew was the son of Matthew and Mary Ann (Ligon) Agee. He married Sarah Mary "Polly" Coats about 1808 in Smith Co, TN. Polly was born on 21 May 1792 and died 13 Jun 1836 in Callaway Co, MO. She is thought to be buried in "Coats Prairie", southeast of Reform, Callaway Co, MO.

Matthew was featured in the book "A History of the Pioneer Families of Missouri" by William S. Bryan and Robert Rose, 1884 as follows:

"Agee - Matthew and Tilman Agee settled on Coats' Prairie in Callaway County (MO) in 1817. Matthew had a large apple and peach orchard, and made brandy. In 1833 the cholera made its appearance in his family, and one of his sons, while suffering from the scourge, drank a barrel of water in twenty-four hours, and got well. Matthew Agee's wife was a daughter of Rev. William Coats. Tilman Agee married a daughter of William Thornton, when she was only thirteen years of age. The next morning after the wedding he left her to get breakfast, while he went out to work. He worked until nine o'clock, without being summoned to his meal, and then having become impatient, he went to the house to see what was the matter, and found his wife sitting on the floor playing with her dolls."

Note: It was not Tillman Agee who's wife was thirteen years of age, it was William Oliver Agee, the son of Matthew and Sarah Mary (Coats) Agee, who married Hannah Marinda Thornton, daughter of William H. and Sally (Todd) Thornton. (Earl J. Agee)
