||Co. Derry 1843 - 1883
| Looking for information regarding my 2nd great grandfather Presbytarian minister Rev. William Mathews in Co. Derry. Also information regarding his children; my great grandfather Dr. James Snodgrass Mathews b. 1847, brother Dr. W.J. Mathews b. 1849 and sister Margaret Ann Mathews.
I believe that the following information may be the Rev. William Mathews I am researching, although I would like to confirm this information. Rev. William Matthews, minister of Dunning, installed Ballylintagh Presbyterian Church (Aghadowey Parish, Co. Derry) on 6 Sept 1843 as second, and last, minister. In 1852 Mr. Matthews and a section of congregation joined Free Church of Scotland and other group split to form Dromore Presbyterian Church. He resigned in 1883, died later that same year and is buried in ground adjoining old church.
Any help regarding this family would be greatly appreciated.
