Comment*James Madison Mathews; James Madison Mathews and William E. Mathews Relationship:
Suspect James Madison Mathews and Mary J. Preston related to William E. Mathews and Nancy Preston, all from Crawford Co GA, lived not far apart in 1850 census (8 households separation, two census pages). James Madison Mathews' father was William Mathews, and named first son William Eldridge Mathews. I suspect that James Madison and William E. were brothers. 
Birth*circa 1826Georgia, USA; birthdate is based on 1850 census that lists William as 24 years old and born in Georgia1 
Event1848Court of Ordinary, Crawford County, Georgia, USA; William E. Mathews appears on a list of people owed money by an estate (David M. Causey). Papers filed by the estate's attorney asserted that the estate did not have sufficient assets to pay. The debt was listed as an account with Mathews, probably a grocery account.2 
Marriage*18 May 1848Nancy Ann Preston; Crawford County, Georgia, USA1,3,4,5 
Occupation*1850Crawford County, Georgia, USA; William is listed as a grocer in the 1850 census.1 
Event*1 July 1850Inferior Court, Crawford County, Georgia, USA; In application to the court and payment of $100 bond, 12 year old "Poor Orphan Child" of the county Josephine Warren was bound to William E. Matthews until she reached the age of 21. Josephine was the daughter of Sarah Warren. William E. Mathews and James Preston (his father-in-law) were jointly responsible for the bond and both signed.2

(Deceased) Death*before 1859Knoxville, Crawford County, Georgia, USA; William E. Mathews said deceased in a court matter 15 February 18592 
Witness: Nancy Ann Preston
Event*15 February 1859James Preston; Knoxville, Crawford County, Georgia, USA; The death of William E. Mathews before 1859 is confirmed in legal papers before the court, untitled as to which court. James Preston, through attorney Thomas Andrews, paid bond associated with a property dispute, where a claim in Superior Court against William E. Mathews, deceased, had been held in favor of the complaining merchants Scott Carhart and Company. The property was described as a house and lot in Knoxville where William E. Mathews resided when he died. These papers imply that the earlier Superior Court decision related to debt owed by William E. Mathews and awarded the property to the complaining merchant. James Preston, father-in-law of William E. Mathews, then gave an affadavit that the house belonged to him, not to William E. Mathews, and filed these papers making a claim on the property.2
