  • Notes 
    • The name of Mary Mathews does not appear in lists of the children of David Mathews and Sarah Seymour. She has been added to this database for further consideration.

      On the ninth of February 1821, Harriet Mathews Green, daughter of David Mathews and Sarah Seymour, placed a "petition" in The American, a New York City newspaper. She was seeking members of her near family who would be involved in the division of property that had been bequeathed by her grandfather, Vincent Mathews in his 1784 Will. The name of Mary Mathews does appear, along with Harriett Mathews Green, as the petitioners, and both women are identified as residents of Medford, Massachusetts. This Mary Mathews in the petition could represent a grand-daughter of David Mathews, rather than a daughter. But, it does place her among the descendants of David Mathews and Sarah Seymour. To consider this further - see the sketch titled, Petition of 1821, David Mathews' Descendants, in this database.

      Nothing further has been learned about Mary Mathews.
