So far, I haven't come across any Mathews/Matthews in my research. However, there could be a connection I haven't yet discovered. The African-American families I'm currently researching in Caroline county have surnames Taliaferro, Flippo/Flipper, Hart, and Williams. They lived mostly in Madison, Caroline, VA; but they are probably related to people who lived in Port Royal, Reedy Church, and Ruther Glen. An interesting Caroline County place name, Guinea Station, apparently refers to slaves imported from Africa. I'm also researching, in northern Virginia, African-American families with surnames Wise, Strange, and Berry.
