New York, NY, 1927.
p100: "The census of 1703 for New York lists "Captain Mathews" and five
children, three sons and two daughters. He was major, and commanded the
Independent Fusiliers in 1711, in which his son Fletcher Mathews was
lieutenant. In 1714 he commanded a company of the Albany County militia,
and in this also his son Fletcher was lieutenant and his son Vincent a
private. Peter Mathews died at Albany in 1719, where his will, proved
December 27th of that year, made his wife Bridget his sole legatee. Her
will, dated January 8, 1721, proved ten days later, named her son
Vincent, grandson Peter, and daughters Catharine and Flora. The
grandson, Peter Mathews, who was living in 1739, and who probably died
unmarried and without issue, may have been the son of Lieutenant
Fletcher Mathews who died February 14, 1714."
