Does anyone know anything about my great grandfather Elijah Dee Mathews? He was born in TN and moved to KY with his family as a young boy. His father and mother, Allen and Sallie ended up in Metcalf Co. but I have information that Elijah Dee ended up in Warren Co. He married Peggy Jane Kidwell and they had several children but only 2 daughters lived. They were named Sarah Martin Mathews (1882) and Mary Elizabeth Mathews (1880). Peggy Jane died in childbirth and
my great grandfather took his two young daughters to Texas. Peggy Jane, as the story goes, is buried in Bowling Green, KY.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
