Does anyone have information on this Virginia family ...
Benjamin Franklin Mathers, born:ca.1840 in Fairfax County, Virginia, died:25 October 1918 in Loudoun County, Virginia, married 29 May 1889 to Margaret P. Ball, born: 5 May 1853 in Harper's Ferry, Jefferson County, West Virginia, died:9 December 1907 in Loudoun County, Virginia. Both buried in the Union Cemetery in Leesburg, Virginia . According to the 1900 census they had 6 children and only three living. So far I have found 4 of the 6. Mary E Mathers, born :6 January 1880 in Leesburg, Loudoun County, Virginia, died :2 Dec 1880 in Leesburg, Loudoun County, Virginia. Frances Elizabeth Mathers, born :26 Jan 1883 in Loudoun County, Virginia, died:9 June 1913 in Washington, D.C. and Benjamin H. (Harry) Mathers, born: May 1889 in Loudoun County, Virginia, died :2 dec 1928 in Washington,D.C.Josephine Virginia Mathers, born:9 aug 1892 died:16 April 1969 Manassas, Prince William County, Virginia . You will also find this family under the name of Mathews . For some reason Frances Elizabeth is buried in Union Cemetery, Leesburg under the name of Frances Mathews Nixon . She was married to Samuel McGill Nixon . Benjamin H. (Harry) is buried in Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia as Harry H. Mathews .
