I'm looking for the parents of William Mathis. Will was born in 1874 in Tennessee. His mother was Emeline Mathis according to his marriage license. He leaves his father's name blank on his marriage license. I am making the assumption that he was born out of wedlock and that he did not know his father's name. The marriage license was filed on 26 Sep 1896 in Yancey County, North Carolina.
William married Harriett L. Roland daughter of William Roland and Lovada King. They had 6 children: Lora, Bessie, Lexie, Frank, Lovada, and Sam.
Does anyone know if Emeline Mathis is Rachele Emeline Mathis born 1847 the daughter of Reverend William Alfred Mathis born 29 SEP 1814 in Jefferson County, TN and Margaret Marie Hart born 14 MAY 1818 in TN?
I would love to hear anything about Will Mathis or Harriett Roland's ancestry.
