Here is a tin-type photo of "Mat King".... I believe she is the daughter of my g.g.grandmother Lucy (White) Germany's sister Leah (White) Meeks... both Lucy and Lea were daughters of Wils and Eliza White early settlers of of Kemper County. We have Leah (White) Meeks's Bible and it states Leah's daughter Mary married W.R. King... Mary's full name may have been Mary Martha and hence the nickname "Mat"... as my g.g.grandparents Lucy (White) and Ben Campbell Germany had a daughter Martha who also went by the name "Mat".
The Meeks, Germany and White families were all living in Kemper County by the early 1840s.
P.S. This may be Mat King on the 1880 census.....
