This is the story we were told, when Jack (Jesse) died grandma Jane (Nancy Jane Greer Curts Mathews) went to the cemetery everyday and would sit and cry by his grave for hours. Little grandma (Margaret Emeline Cagle Greer Phillips ) went to my grandfather (Ira Mathews) and told him that he needed to move my grandma away from there. Ira Mathews moved his family to California.
