Notes
a. Note:   Biographical Information by Dennis Nicklaus: !James grew up in Greene County, Tennessee. While James was a child there,
 Davy Crockett was born
 in Greene County in 1786, just a few miles east of where the Matthews
 family lived.
 James moved to Pulaski County, Kentucky with his new bride and
 several other Matthews family members in 1803.
 In 1815-16, James and his family moved on to Ross County, Ohio
 and settled in Twin township there. About 1827, the family
 moved to Fayette County, Indiana.
 James is named as an ``early'' landowner of Rush Co., Indiana.
 Relatively little is known of James, compared with his father
 or his children. His son, T.Q. was appointed
 administrator of James' estate in Shelby County on Oct. 31, 1837.
 In Pulaski Co., Kentucky, James was taxed for 100 acres on Pitman
 Creek for the years 1804--1813. The amount increased to 140 acres
 in 1814 and changed to 80 acres in 1815. It appears that James
 just rented the land and didn't own it as the tax lists show
 the land entered in someone else's name (A. Russell from 1807--1814).
 Andrew Russell received two certificates in Pulaski Co.,
 for 100 acres and 300 acres, on Pitman's creek
 in June 1801.
