Welcome to my world. These section is devoted to family history. The pages in this contain information from a document that has been a work in progress for many years. The section on John Garrett Matthews began in 1940 as he told his life story to his wife and family.

Rather than present a single large document, it has been separated into different sections, some small and some large, that are concerned with different generations.

Please note that this is Copyrighted material and may not be used without permission from the various copyright owners.
