Samantha Jane "Mattie" Pilcher was the third of eleven children born to James Marion and Sarah Jane "Zady" Nelson Pilcher. Samantha Jane was born February 10, 1862, probably in what was then Pontotoc Co., MS. In the 1870 census the family is enumerated in Lafayette Springs, Pontotoc Co, MS; in 1880, with the formation of Lafayette County, they were enumerated in Lafayette Springs, Lafayette Co, MS. I believe James Marion Pilcher to be the son of William Lewis and Sarah Delaney Pilcher. Lewis was born in Washington Co., GA, about 1789. On November 6, 1844, Lewis sold land in Warren Co., GA -- perhaps in preparation for his move west. Children of Lewis and Sarah Pilcher (to the best of my knowledge) were:

       i.       JOHN MARTIN7 PILCHER, b. April 26, 1815, Dublin, Laurens County, GA; d. January 14, 1902, Thomas County, GA; m. CHARLOTTE REBECCA DEVANEY, January 16, 1840; b. December 23, 1823, Dublin, Laurens County, GA.
       ii.       ELIZABETH AMANDA PILCHER, b. Abt. 1822.
       iii.       WILLIAM PILCHER, b. Abt. 1823; d. Aft. 1860; m. (1) CATHERINE BASCOMB, August 01, 1851, Pontotoc Co., MS; m. (2) MARY TODD, August 30, 1855, Pontotoc Co., MS.
       iv.       ADELINE ALNEEDA PILCHER, b. Abt. 1829; m. FRANKLIN PILCHER, January 03, 1849, Pontotoc Co., MS
       v.       STEPHEN PILCHER, b. Abt. 1832, Georgia; m. ROSANNA SMITH, March 04, 1855, Pontotoc Co., MS; b. Abt. 1836, Alabama.
       vi.       MARY PILCHER, b. Abt. 1836; m. (2) J. L. SMITH, October 16, 1865, Pontotoc Co., MS; b. Abt. 1842, Alabama.
       vii.       JAMES MARION PILCHER, b. Abt. 1837, Georgia; m. SARAH JANE SADY NELSON, September 28, 1858; b. Abt. 1838, Mississippi.
viii.       JACKSON DEKALB PILCHER, b. November 07, 1838; d. April 12, 1901; m. DELILAH JANE SMITH; b. June 16, 1842; d. November 13, 1901.

All of them except the oldest son, John Martin Pilcher, moved with the family into MS.

I have a picture of Mattie Pilcher and William Robert Montgomery. The pictures of fairly small, but pretty clear. Unfortunately, I have no pictures any further back.
