Re: Allen and Maria Mathews Newton Co. 1860

In Reply to: Allen and Maria Mathews Newton Co. 1860 by Heather Brown of 53400

In 1870, Neosho, Newton Co. MO there is an entry for Allen Mathis, age 53, b. KY, working as a clerk in a store. Also in the household was Louisa Mathis, 53, b. KY and Richard M. Mathis, age 24, b. MO, working as a clerk in a store.

This might be Richard:

1900 Indian Territory, Cherokee Nation

Richard M. Mathes, b. Feb 1844 in MO, both parent b. KY. He was widowed, living alone, working as a druggist.

The name Allen was not a particularly common given name. Perhaps the surname spelling was changed, or the enumerator might have made a mistake. However, if the Richard Mathes living in 1900 Indian Territory was Allenís son, it would seem to indicate a name spelling change.

The land description given for 1900 I.T. would place Richard in present day Mayes Co. OK.

The two youngest daughters were born in Indian Territory, which might be why I could not find this family in 1850. It is my understanding that non Indians had to have a permit to be in I. T. or they were considered to be Intruders. Do you have any idea why they were in Indian Territory?
