Was Benfletcher Mathews a member of the garrison at Athlone in the late 17th century? ľOr, was he a merchant or man of business in the town of Athlone?
- [pam garrett's comment] Over my years of research I have looked at several Mathews individuals and families that I thought might lead to the Ancestors of Catherine Mathews, wife of John Markham. My notes have become so unwieldy that I have felt need of entering these people, individually, into my database. The people listed below, in the burial records of St Michan Church, Dublin, must surely be related to Peter Mathews who came to New York in 1692, in the "train of Gov Benjamin Fletcher. Unfortunately I have had little success in learning more about them.
