Thanks for posting your Matthias information. You have some details I didn't have.

My records indicate the following:

Mary Ann's parents:

* Charles Matthias (my ggg grandfather)
* Birth
o 27 May 1802
o in Philadelphia, PA

* Death
o 30 AUG 1877
o in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA
* Mary Brown
* Birth
o Oct 1802
o in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA

* Death
o 8 Nov 1879
o in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA

Mary Brown's mother was Jane ___________ and her father was born in 1785. Charles Matthias' mother was Mary Stevenson, 1773-1841. I wish I had more ancestor information, but these are my brick walls.

Here are Mary Ann's siblings:
Elizabeth Matthias
1828 1904
Jane Matthias
1831 1863
Mary Ann Matthias
1833 1915
Rebecca Matthias
1834 1920
John Wesley Matthias
1836 1899
Joseph Rusling Matthias
1838 1910
Sarah Ann Matthias
1842 1909
Charles C. Matthias
1846 1901
Nelson Matthias
1848 1895
Rebecca J Matthias
George Matthias

I have some additional details if you want to email me, including a brief writeup about the Matthias/Nixons. I'd be very interested in any data you or others have to share on the Matthias family of the 1700s/early 1800s in Pennsylvania.

I have two Howard Matthias's. One is William Howard M. born Phila., 11 Dec. 1872, the grandson of Charles (above) and son of Charles (Jr.). His son is Wilson Howard M. born 1900.
