- James Mateer's wife had been previously married and was the mother of three
daughters by her first husband Spangler. One of these girls was mentioned in
the will of William Mateer, as his "half-sister Susan Zeigler"; Nancy Ann Teel
mentioned there as another residual legatee may have had a similar status,
though no such relationship is specifically indicated. the Crawford County,
Ohio, Death Records lists Sarah Mateer, who died 12 March 1882 aged 65 years
one month 7 days, born in Pennsylvania; this woman born about 1817, could
possibly have been another Spangler daughter who went by the name Mateer after
her mother's remarriage and removal to Ohio.
