      Thanks go to Dave who sent us his entire GEDCOM file of almost 10,000 names on 24 Aug 2004. We at mathia.org then extracted all MATHIA and MATTHIA related names. This file includes names of spouses, but not children with other surnames. The original file and data at ancestry.com will be useful in completing collateral research.

      Source for all information in this record:

      GEDCOM downloaded 13 Aug 2004 from "Fowler and Villines Genealogy"
      http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~fowler/main.htm#GEN

      GEDCOM contained the Combined Genealogy For Fowler and Villines Families

      Note from website states "This part of the website contains the Combined genealogy of the Fowler and the Villines families. It also contains people related to the direct descendants but not included in the lines above."

      Peter's name was reported as being changed from Martee to Mathia when he entered the United States. He and his wife, according to family tradition, came from the Alsace Lorraine area of France. They spoke German in the home.
      Naturalization record: Probate Court, Volume # 5 Page 2, Peter Mathia, native of France, certificate issued 4/29/1859, sponsor: Christian Depp, declaration of intent was made over 2 years ago in Sandusky County OH. I am trying to get a copy of this record.

      The Mathia farm was located 2 miles east and 1 mile north of Clearfield in Johnson County Kansas.
      The following was taken from land records as recorded in Book I, page 457 on June 30, 1874 of the Johnson County Kansas Recorder of Deeds: Peter Mathia purchased 60 acres from Mary McDougal and Francis McDougal (Minor), sole heirs of Lewis McDougal (deceased), for $300.00. Two chiefs, Graham Rogers and Charles Tucker, all Shawnee Indians were witnesses for the sellers. The land was located in the southwest corner of Johnson County, Kansas, McCamish Township, Section 11, Township 14, south of Range 21, SW 1/4.
      Sale of land was recorded on September 17, 1869 by R.L. Roberts, U.S. Indian Agent, and witnessed by Johahan Grove and Charles Bluejacket, U.S. Interpreter.

      According to Gertie (Mathia) Steele, Peter Mathia settled on this farm until the children were grown. He then moved to a farm near the Hart Post Office, McDonald Co MO; then to a farm near Senaca, MO; then to a farm near Joplin, MO. It was there that he was shot by a neighbor over a fence. Christina did not move to Missouri, but remained in Kansas during this time.

      1860 haven't found yet on any census - should probably be in Ohio

      1900 Soundex M300
      Missouri, Jasper Co
      Mathia, Peter 65 Feb 1835 Prussia, both parents from Prussia
      living alone, according to this census he had no citizenship even filed

      ATTENTION: when I ask in Germany for Peter Mathia, I got:
      Internationl Genealogical Index F217 - Germany
      Mattes, Peter sex M
      Extracted Birth and/or Christening Records
      Evangelich, Stromberg, Wstfln County, Prussia
      Batch C930242
      Dates 1800-1864
      Source Call Number 490295
      Type film
      Printout none
      (note: in 1900 soundex Peter states he is from Prussia. Could this be him?
      Could his father be a Leopold which is name of oldest son?
      As soon as this film arrives I will let you know what it says.)

      When I checked LDS for Christina Close, I got:
      International Genealogical Index F217 - Germany ON ORDER
      Kloos, Christina sex F
      Extracted Birth and/or Christening Records.
      Roemisch-Katholische, Roxheim, Pfalz County, Bavaria
      Batch C993171
      Dates 1734-1798
      Source Call Number 367595
      Type film
      Printout none
      (I know Date doesn't match, but notes on Christina do. Not ordered yet.)


      Also, I think Peter Mathia met and married Christina Close in New York but I havne't found a marriage license yet. I would guess they married about 1855.
