Family Demography: Mr. James Mathews
Full Length Interview
Home Is Where I Make It Oral History Project: Mathews, James
"Oh. We have two children who still live in Portland. The oldest girl, Sylvia, she's married and has two children. My son, Dennis, still lives with us at the moment. He had moved out and found that the cost was too great at the moment so he moved back in. He's checking it out to see what he can do. We have one son, Robert James, Jr., who lives in Connecticut. I don't' know why I can't come up with a name. I can't think of the name. That's understandable because I do that all the time. But he lives in Connecticut, and he's married and he has two boys. We have two other daughters, Priscilla and Jacqueline, that live in the Norfolk, Virginia, area. Jackie has two children and Priscilla has three children."
