bill, my family pronounces mathers----- may-thers, but i've alway's figured that somewhere down the line, some of the families got americanized. i've alway's figured we were all the same. i am especially intrigued by your family. my great-great grandfather was robert mathers b. january 1822 somewhere in northern ireland. the boyne river area i have been told. i've been trying to find out, but keep hitting brick wall's. it seem's that i'm going to have to break down and spend some money, but not sure which route to go, i.e. ancestry.com or an researcher, etc. here is some of my family names, let me know if we have any cross over's. robert mathers m. julia landow =son, william mathers m.jeanette coyle and so on to me. i don't when robert came here, but i'm willing to bet that it was during the potato famine, since he was in his 20's. let me know if you know anything, thanks julia delong.
