This answer was rated:

Can you find any information regarding Albert E Mathews Sr. ( One "T". )
Address: XXXXX Dover, NH
Born: June 22, 1899 in Scranton, PA. Died October 1947.

Albert Sr Married Lena Clausen / Clawson ? In 1919 or 1920. Lena's DOB Jan 28,1899+/- 5 yrs. , Lena died approx 1950 in the Dover/Wharton, NJ area. I think her father was a sheriff in Hackettstown, NJ.

Albert & Lena's children:
Margaret who died prior to 1945,
Albert E Mathews Jr DOB Feb 10, 1923. Died June/July 2007. (Year of death positive.)
Elene Harriet DOB Feb 12, 1920 =/- 5 yrs. Died Nov 22, 1985 (Date positive.)
I believe Lena's father was a sheriff in Hackettstown, NJ.



Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. Can you specify what information you mean by "any information" so we don't waste time looking for things you already know?

Do you have any census information or true3 documentation to prove this information is correct or to correct it? ALBERT E. MATHEWS. Sr. is my maternal grandfather.

I did find some information on the censuses, but not much about Albert Mathews. Information in the censuses about birthplace and parents' birthplaces keeps changing.



1930 CENSUS - Dover, Morris Co., NJ - District 18 - ED 15


Albert Mathews 41 M Head age @t 1st marriage 18 yrs b NY father b England mother b Holland

Lena Mathews 39 F Wife age @ 1st marriage 16 yrs b NJ Both parents b NJ

Elene Mathews 8F Dau b PA father b NY mother b NJ

Albert 7 M Son b PA father b NY mother b NJ

Caroline Clawson 60 F M-I-L Widow b NJ Both parents b NJ


If Albert were 41 in 1930, he would have been born about 1889 rather than 1899.


In the 1900 Census, Caroline ("Carrie") Wire Clawson and her two children are living with her parents Alonzo and Marsha Wire in Hackettstown, NJ. She is listed as married instead of widowed or divorced, but there is no husband around. By the 1910 census, Lena's parents Carrie and Unknown Clawson were divorced.

Alonzo Wire (1848-1910) was a policeman in Hackettsville.


New Jersey and New York are the two worst states for obtaining family information. None of the records are public and you have to request them personally - there is a fee. Here is the contact information:


1910 CENSUS - Hackettstown, Warren Co., NJ District 0128 ED 11

Albert E. Mathews 22 M married once b NY father b England mother b Ireland Salesman
