I have a William Robert Mathers and a Thomas Mathers from Armagh, Ireland and I am wondering if they might be related. Their father was Seth (Seath) Mathers born 1789. wives Eleanor White and Ellen Maginnis; children Elizabeth Ann b 1825, Robert b. 1826, John b. 1827, Henry b. 1828, Henry b. 1829, Seth b. 1830, William Robert b. 1832, Thomas b. 1834, Margaret b. 1835, James b. 1839, David b. 1840, David b. 1842.
I am wondering if your William and Thomas are the children of one of these Mathers children. James married Mary Mathers (dau. of John Mathers and Ellen Overend) and moved to Canada between 1875 and 1878
