Dear Bruce,

It is believed that Matilda had the following siblings: Stephen (1791-1854), Nancy (1795-1869), Enoch (1798-1871), Rachel (c. 1800-aft. 1890) George (1804-57), and half-sister Mary Burris (c. 1808-1841).

Stephen had about 16 children by three wives, was a farmer and Justice of the Peace. Most of his married life was spent in and near Clark County, Illinois. He died about a year after moving to Texas from Wright Co., Missouri.

Nancy was the wife of Abraham Walters. They lived and died in Crawford Co., Illinois.

Enoch's family included one son followed by nine daughters. He was a farmer and merchant in Clark Co., Illinois. His mother probably lived with him at her death.

Rachel was the wife of James Kidwell. He was a farmer, merchant, miller, and public official. He was one of the pioneers of Parker Co., Texas.

George was a farmer and Justice of the Peace. He founded the town of Clarksville in Clark Co., Illinois, an experiment that never fully developed and which is only a hamlet. He moved to Texas in 1853, continued to California a few years later but died en-route, according to tradition.

Half-sister Mary Burris was the wife of Levi Clapp. Both of them died within two years of each other in Clark Co., Illinois.
