Consider this. Mathias Barringer, Sr. was killed by Indians fighting for the British in the American Revolutionary War. When he died, his only son (Mathias Jr.) was about ten years old. Mathias Sr. had a brother named George. It is possible (as I have seen records of it many times over) where the brother took over the affairs of his deceased brother until such time that the wife remarried. Sometimes (but not in this case), even marrying her, himself. Mathias Jr. was George's nephew, not his son. Their relationship, however, could have been more like father and son. Would this begin to smooth some corners off?
