Generation No. 2

 

2.  JAMES KITCHEN2 MATHIS (UNKNOWN1) was born 1822 in Tennessee, and died 1871 in Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Tennessee.  He married MALISSA BLOOMFIELD? MCDONOUGH Abt. 1840 in Bledsoe County, Tennessee, daughter of ANDREW MCDONOUGH and SARAH KELLY.  She was born January 29, 1824 in Bledsoe County, Tennessee, and died May 20, 1891 in Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Tennessee.

 

Notes for JAMES KITCHEN MATHIS:

Alonzo wrote that James was born in 1814 and died at the age of 56. Until the Jackson-McMinn Treaty of 1817 with the Cherokees, Marion County was part of Bledsoe County.  Since James named his first son Enoch Andrew and we know Melissa's father was Andrew, maybe James' father was Enoch. Jim Smith said that James came to Marion County, TN as a small boy and grew up there.
