Father*James Mathews1 b. c 1792, d. 1850
Mother*Telitha (?)1 b. c 1808
Birth*circa 1844Georgia, USA1 
(Student) Education1850James Mathews; Mt. Carmel Academy, Crawford County, Georgia, USA; Estate papers of James Mathews include debts to Thos. E. Smith for 40 weeks tuition and books for Mathews children Josephine, Jefferson E., Lydia Ann S., and Paul. A book charge for Josephine and Paul was simply called Worcester's History. This may have been "Elements of History, Ancient and Modern", By Joseph Emerson Worcester, published 1845.
This Mt. Carmel Academy was likely associated with the Mount Carmel Primitive Baptist Church Crawford Co. A James Mathews was identified as an elder of this church.2,3 
(Resident) Census5 September 1850(Head of Household) James Mathews, GA Crawford Co Census 1850; Division No. 20, Crawford County, Georgia, USA; "Jas Mathews" age 59, planter, real estate $1000, born Georgia;

All born in Georgia.
(JA may be related to James but seems less likely to be relate to Telitha given the age difference with the children in the household and Telitha's young age when JA was born.)1 
(Heir) Estate10 March 1857(Deceased) James Mathews; Superior Court, Crawford County, Georgia, USA; Estate papers of James Mathews include an action brought by his widow Talitha Mathews against James O R Mathews, administrator of the estate and former guardian of Josephine J V Mathews, now Josephine J V Nichols, wife of Harrison Nichols. Telitha, having been appointed guardian in around 1853, sued as petitioner for Josephine and the other minor orphan children of James, alleging that proper accounting had not been made for funds due to the children, that there was a breach of the conditions of the guardianship bond, and naming the amount believed to be due.
The Mathews children were named:
Josephine J. V. Mathews (now Nichols), Lydia Ann, Tabitha, James M., and E. J.4
