I would like to compare notes with anyone who has done Matthews family research in Charles City County -> Prince George County -> Dinwiddie County for the first half of the 1700's. We recently discovered the will of Samuel Mathews who died in Dinwiddie County in 1754. In it he named his wife Ann and their four children: John, Elizabeth, William and Mary. Samuel is our 5th great grandfather and at this stage is our earliest identified Matthews ancestor. Not having researched in this area before, we would welcome any pointers about sources, etc., as we seek to learn more about Samuel and his family of origin.
