|Rev. Thomas Bosomworth and Mary Musgrove|
Mary Musgrove, now Mrs. Jacob Matthews, the translator for Tomochichi, told Mr. Stephens that he wished to record that the land was hers. Stephens said that he would do so.
Jacob Matthews caused concern to the Trustees when it was reported to them that he behaved audaciously towards the Magistrates, they fearing for the peace of the town. And it was Mary, his wife, with whom they preferred to intercede with the indians.
Children of John and Mary: (from the Cuyler Collection, University of Georgia Library)
I. Edward Musgrove married an Indian girl, Nanny.
II. James Musgrove, bequeathed by his father the Cowpen lot in Savannah, and an Indian man called Justice.
Mary was married three times, first to John Musgrove, then to Jacob Matthews and finally to Rev. Thomas Bosomworth who demanded that the land which Tomichichi granted to Great Britain on St. Marys Island, be returned to his wife. For years, he fought the cause, but his tarnished reputation as a minister of the Gospel and one who took advantage of others, was well known throughout the colony.
