b. 1785 PA


[DNA Kit 40769]


Henry’s DNA test results show one marker from an exact match to Jacob Mattocks b.c. 1750 PA {kit 46798}, Edward Mattocks b. 1774 PA {kit 42384} , and John b. 1805 PA {kit 44550} (see their pedigree charts on this website).  We do not yet know who their common ancestor is.


I believe Henry’s father was Henry Mattocks b. 1755 or before, who appeared in Cumberland Co., PA, as follows:


1776 Indictment #639, victim of theft in Fermanaugh Twp.

1787 On tax list for Milford Twp with 100 acres

1793 Obtained Land Grant #113 for 100 acres

1798 On tax list Milford Twp, Mifflin Co., HH48 with 50 acres

1800 Census Milford Twp, Mifflin Co., pg. 12/476 age 45+ with family


He may have moved to Crawford Co., PA, Fallowfield Twp, where a Henry appears 1804 to 1815.  Joseph Mattocks was there beginning 1797.  Jacob and Henry Mattocks were there prior to 1804, but I do not know how much prior.


A Henry Matlack joined the PA Militia in 1780 Chester Co., 4th Btn, Capt. Johnston’s Co. during the Revolutionary War.  Men came from surrounding counties to volunteer.
