Caneega Cemetery II

Charles has found another grave.  Matthew Screws, son of J Seaborn & Jane Screws, born Mar. 12,1886-died Mar.22, 1904.  There's a 1900 census entry with him being listed as Matha.  Could their accents be so heavy that the "hew" sounded like "ah"?  I also wonder if, Mathey, was maybe his nickname.
