17 December 1779. Next, he enlisted on 14 June 1781 for a twelve-month term

To Michael in particular,

Are you familiar with this Matthews descendant or info?

http://genforum.genealogy.com/mathis/messages/3592.html

Mathews/Mathis/Matthews Family Y-DNA

Cooley is not mentioned specifically, but there is a lot of genealogy on the
Matthews line.

Also, while searching on Ancestry.com, I came across Mathis genealogy -
don't remember how exactly I found this - but there was a Rice Mathis & a
Perrin Mathis mentioned in one family. I may have been searching Tandy
Matthews.
