I don't have any additional information on Abraham Mathew. You'll need to try some other sources. Sorry.


MATHEW, MATTHEW AND MATTHEWS
1) Search of Civil War Records for Pension, and Military Records.
This is accomplished by writing:

National Archives and Records Service
General Services Administration
Washington, D C 20408

Request form GSA 6751. When you receive the form fill out all the material that you know, and send the form back to the same address. In 4 to 6 weeks you should get 20 to 50 pages of military and Pension records.

2) The State of West Virginia still has several hundred unclaimed Civil War Medals. (There is a Website). These medals may be claimed by direct descendants. There is no unclaimed Medals for the names Mathew or Matthews.


3) BOOKS: You may find something in one of these:

       3.1 THE SOLDIERY OF WEST VIRGINIA IN THE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR; LORD DUNMORES'S WAR, THE REVOLUTION, THE LATER INDIAN WARS, THE SECOND WAR WITH ENGLAND, THE WAR WITH MEXICO AND THE AN ADDENDA THAT INCLUDES THE CIVIL WAR. Virgil Lewis, 1911, REPR 1998

       3.2 RECORDS OF THE FAMILY MAT(T)HEW(S) IN GREAT BRITAIN AND DESC OF JOHN MATHEWS AND ANN ARCHER, ISAAC AND MARY MATHEW AND OTHER FAMILIES MAINLY IN VIRGINIA. JOHN R BOOTS, JR 1980

       3.3 MATTHEWS, PAGE, WILSON, DEAN, BARTLETT AND REALTED FAMILIES, KERMIT DEAN MATTHEWS, 1993
