According to Orlin, Lucy Fay was born October 31, 1752. She married Capt. David Mathews of Colerain, son of James Mathews, who had been born March 2, 1747 in Merrimac, New Hampshire. "They were tall, good looking and wealthy. Had many tenants on their land, resided in Colrain." They had 12 children. John Mathews' story is continued by Orlin; the following adds the story of Lucy Mathews and a bit about the others.
