      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 William Mathia moved to Oklahoma when it was opended up for homesteading. Peter and Arra lived near Hart, McDonald Co MO; then near Clearfield, Douglas Co., KS; then near Tiff City MO but on the Oklahoma side. Peter and Arra homesteaded a farm located 2 miles east and 1+ miles south of Turkey Ford, Oklahoma in Delaware Co. This road now dead-ends at the Lake of the Cherokee's (Grand Lake), south of the homestead.
      In later years, Peter and Arra's son, Fred Mathia, along with his second wife Sylvia, lived on this homestead. A butane gat heater was used to heat the bedroom. About midnight in 1986, the heater exploded and set the house on fire. Sylvia died in the fire. Fred escaped by laying under a matress and lived. The house was destroyed.

      Note: Henry Mathia's obit (April 1838) mentions a brother T. W. of Jefferson City MO.
