1Paternity Documentation Samuel Sr. to Samuel, Michael & Abraham:1807 Sussex County, New Jersey Will of Samuel, Sr.


2Paternity Documentation Michael, Samuel or Abraham to John:††


1.Of the sons of Samuel Sr., neither John nor James nor Jacob nor David nor Giles had a proven son named John.†† Sons of Michael, Samuel, and Abraham are unknown.†† So by elimination, one of these men was Johnís father.


2.Michael m. 1795, Samuel m. 2nd 1801, Abraham 1816.John was b. 1799.So the most likely person to be Johnís father was Michael.

3.However, John said in 1880 that his parents were born in PA.Abraham said in 1850 that he was b. in PA.

4.Ages of most of Samuel Srís sons are based on date of marriage and age categories in 1820-1840 census.


5.John in Rush Co., IN, always said he was born 1799 NJ.The Mattix brothers, sons of Samuel who d. NJ 1807, & their widowed mother migrated to OH between 1806 and 1818.

6.John b. 1795-1801 was in Butler Co., OH, 1820 census, and b. 1791-1800 also in Butler Co., OH.In the 1830 census, he was b. 1791-1800 and in Rush Co., IN.So his year of birth was 1795-1800.


3Paternity Documentation John to Christopher:Very strong circumstantial that could be proven.


1.In 1830 Butler Co., OH, John was living next to Christopher Smith.He married Catherine Smith and named a son Christopher.

2.Christopher always said he was b. in OH.

3.Christopher was living in the same township as John in Rush Co., IN, 1840.

4.Christopher married in Rush Co., IN.

5.Christopher named many of his children the same names John gave his.


John was living with son Daniel (b. OH) in 1880, and John (b. NJ) was listed as Danielís father.Therefore, a DNA test of a direct male descendant of Daniel (proven to be son of John) would solve this.As soon as this is done, a comparison can be made with the results of Christopherís direct descendant.


4Paternity Documentation Christopher to Aaron Winfred:1860 & 1870 censuses of Jefferson Township, Mahaska County, Iowa.


5Paternity Documentation Aaron Winfred to Winfred Aaron: 1900 & 1910 censuses of Mahaska County, Iowa.


6Paternity Documentation Winfred Aaron to Ralph Dean Mattix:1920 & 1930 censuses of West Des Moines Township, Mahaska County, Iowa.
