I am researching Matilday Hively (Heivley). Family records show she was born about 1822 in Lycoming County PA, probably Williamsport. She married William Best about 1850, and they moved west, progressively to Indiana, Cass Co MI, Livingston Co MO, Donley Co (Clarendon) TX, and finally in 1882 to Meade Co, KS, where they both died in 1902. They had four children, two of whom lived to adulthood. My wife is descended from their youngest, Sarah Matilda Best, who married Seth B. Cheney.
Looking at various internet pedigrees, it appears Matilda is a child of Jacob Hively and Eva Kunkle, but I have not yet done research that establishes that.
