James, there is an article in the 8-14-1919 Weekly Courier newspaper in Uniontown, PA that relates to the Matthews family. It specifically talks about Matthews members in the war, but at the end it says: "The history of the Matthews family in this country dates back to 1740. In that year Giles Matthews settled in this vicinity, near what is now Trotter. It was then a wilderness. He immigrated from Germany. Mr. Matthews married Miss Margaret Beatty, who was also from this section." (My great aunt was Dorothy Ella Patton who was 2nd wife to the Giles Matthews born in 1866)
