The first thing that should be noted on the Matney family is that there are several variations of the name throughout the years. These variations include, but are not limited to: Mathney, Mattingley, Matteinlee, Mattony, Mattany, Mattenlee, Mattingly, and Matney.
Brooks Matney was born about 1771, probably in Prince George’s County, Maryland. December 23, 1794 Nicholas Reagan united in marriage Brooks Matney and “Jennit” (Janette, Janet, or Jane) Young, daughter of Daniel Young.
Henry Highland Corel was born April 2, 1814. Henry Highland is one of our biggest clues that Rebecca Oney’s mother was Sarah Highland Oney.
