  • Notes 
    • James Mathews was born about 1776 in Orange county New York. As a teenager, he removed with his parents, James Mathews and Hannah Strong, to Elmira, Chemung county New York. He married Hannah Hammond, daughter of Lebbeus Hammond and Lucy Tubbs, and the young couple took up residence on a Hammond family farm near Southport, outside of Elmira.

      James Mathews and Hannah Hammond were the parents of six identified children:
      Vincent Mathews (1806-1829); died as young adult, probably unmarried.
      Sarah Mathews (1808-1829); married Vincent Conkling.
      Mary Mathews (1810-1902); died unmarried.
      William Mathews (1812-1856); married Alcinoe A Baldwin.
      Rebecca Mathews (1814-1891); married Judd Smith.
      Lebeus Hammond Mathews (1816-1900); married Harriett Smith.

      I have not been successful in learning the death dates, or burial locations, for James Mathews and Hannah Hammond. Many of their descendants are buried in the Ashland Cemetery at Wellsburg, and the Fitzsimmons Cemetery at Southport, both in Chemung county New York.
