In Reply to: Seeking Mathias Family info Colorado area by John Mathias of 543

My g. grandfather Francis (maybe Francois in France)Mathias was born ca. 1820. Came to the US about 1849 and married Ellen Cobb in NY (Steuben Co.) They had several children:Charlie born 1861, Francis born 1854, John born 1874, Louis born 1858, Henry born born 1865, Frederick born 1870 and Mary born 1877. Francis fought in the Civil War and was wounded. I find them on a census of 1870 and 1880 in Kansas. Then in 1900 they were living in Chaffee Co Colorado. Charlie married Sarah Elizabeth Crawford Pinkston in 1898. Charlie died June 20, 1931 and Sarah died November 6, 1924 in Buena Vista, Colorado. Don't know if this is a connection or not. Brenda
