Notes:
* The William B. Mathis family lived in Hardeman County, Tennessee in the 1830's where he was married to Martha Ann Fowler.
* According to the family lore of the William G. Milligan Family in the Upshur County Texas Sesquicentennial History Book page 229, the Mathis family, (called Matthews then), related to the William B. Mathis family, decided to move to eastern Texas and "needed a scout to guide them and chose a neighbor who was pretty well known for this kind of this--the Davy Crockett! They crossed the Mississippi River at Memphis, traveled down through Arkansas and arrived at Clarksville, Red River County, Texas on January 17, 1836." "Another source says 'Crockett and a number of others left the wagon train after crossing the Mississippi and joined the army of the Republic of Texas." In March 1836 he died at the Alabama.
