  • Notes 
    • Conflicting information about birth year. Matthew is not listed on the 1870 federal census, he is listed in 1880 as age 10. His gravestone marker lists 1871 as his birth year and the 1900 federal census gives his birth date as January 1873. Since his brother Rufus states on the 1900 federal census that his birth date was March 1873, there is a small problem.

      Since in 1880 he is listed as 10 years old but he does not appear on the 1870 census, this is consistent with a birth year of 1871. It was not unusual for census records to be a year off one way or the other.
