About Thomas Mattingly, III

There exists some confusion about the mother of two of the children shown under the first wife. One researcher states that John Baptist and Clement are sons of Ruth Cole, not Elizabeth Warren. Rev. Herman Mattingly stated that Clement was likely a child of Ruth but John Baptist was born before his mother's death. With his first wife dying in 1715, it would seem likely that Clement was a child of the first wife as well. I do not currently believe John Baptist was a child by the first wife.
