I believe your Mathew Wise is a brother to the Thomas Wise at this website:

http://www.myindianahome.net/gen/jeff/records/military/wise.html

I believe, also, these brothers had another brother, James Wise, of whom I am a decendent. I am trying to find out about James' parentage, which is briefly mentioned at the website address above. If you have any knowledge of Mathew's parents' names and origins it would be very helpful to me. The biography of Thomas Wise (who was commissioner in Jefferson County for over 20 years) at the website above provides several clues which might be worth following up on. I just discovered this possible connection and don't have ready access to Jefferson County.

Best reagrds,
Ed
