There's really no proof Matthews' wife's last name. But looking at the following one would think that it would be.

Matthew signed as next of kin on a William Noble 's inventory in Dorchester Co., Md. in 1772. Possible, Mary's brothers???? Then there is Noble their son, could was probably their first born son.

Certified by Richard Wm. Jm. Registrar Wills for Caroline County.

_____________________________________________________________________

Records show that some of Matthew's children were members of the "Nicholities".
This was a relegious group that broke away from the Quakers. Which leads me to believe that at one time the Coveys were Quakers. Which would explain several things. Anyway, Matthew's son, Noble was a known member, also it's believe that at lease two of Matthews' daughters married members of this group, all are believed to have gone into Rowan Co., NC, as well as another brother, William. It's not known if William was part of the movement or not. It is known that in later years the William was part of the Methodist church.

The following is alittle back ground on the "NIcholities"::

Around 1779 there was a migration of people into the Deep River section of Rowan Co. These people belonged to a sect known as "Nicholities". They have been so overlooked that even their descendants do not know of them. Some of these families, included; Grays, Littleton, Coveys, Peggs, Chipmans, Wheelers and Horneys. This movemnent was founded by Joseph Nichols around 1760. Joseph was from Kent Co., De., had not been a religious person and spent his free time partying with his friends. During one of these escapades, one of his friends became ill and died. Supposely the experience shook him so that he began preaching to his friends of the light that he had come to believe shown in the understanding of man and to obedience to an "Inward Director." The area where all this took place was heavy populated by Quakes. The Nicholities were greatly influeced by and had many similarities to the Society of Friends. They did not believe in paid ministers, all marriages, births and death were to be recorded. Marriages were to be performed in the same manner a Quakers and marriage to a non-Nicholite would cause one to be disowned from meeting. Nicholities, like Quakers didn't believe in fighting and suffered many hardships during the American Revolution. They were often referred to as "Friend" or "New Quakers."

The biggest difference between the Nicholities and Quakers was, the Nicholities saw evil in too much education and seldom had their children taught beyond the ability to read and write. Most lacked the basic education.

They wore plain clothes, black and white. Traveled by foot and opposed slavery. After, Joseph's death, in Dec 1770. Shortly after the out-break of the American Revolution the group, mostly from the Delaware area migrated to NC, where they settled in the south western corner of Guilford Co.,NC. Paris Chipman and Joseph Standley were the leaders.

In 1774 nine Nicholities signed a petition to the NC General Assembly, for relief from taking oaths and bearing arms. The nine signer were: James Caldwell, Levin Charles, William Charles, Paris Chipman, John Horney, William Horney, Valentine Pegg, (who's sister married Noble Covey), Joseph Standley, and William Wheeler.

Noble Covey was one of the signers of the 1774 decision to organize the Nicholite Society. Noble's second marriage was to Mary Pegg Bicham, sister to Valentine and Martin Pegg. At the time Noble lived in Rowan Co., which is now known as Davidson. Also, Benjamin Shaw who married Rhoda Covey, daughter of Noble was also amember of this group.

The Edward Covey who married the Mary Bradley is still a puzzle. Here's what I've found on Mary's father, maybe it will help somewhere along the line in determining where the Edward comes in at.

    England. He wouldhave immigrated to the United States in about 1640.
    It is believed, then, that William was born about 1625. More will beadded as new information is gained.
    If William and Mary were married in 1683 as shown on this chart, it isanot likely that he was born in 1660.
    William was to become the first of his line in the new world. He and hixbrother James were instrumental in
    spreading the Covey name throughoutthe United States. (Research: Wes covey, Spokane, WA.).

     Death:      Oct., 1796, Caroline County, Maryland, USA
     John Covey was born in 1735 at Dorchester, Charles County, Maryland to Matthew George and Mary Noble Covey. He married Sarah Andrew about 1760 in Maryland and their children were: Andrew, John, Elizabeth, Joshua, James, Jacob, Matthew, Thomas and Sarah. It's possible that he later married a woman named Polly and had several children by her. This needs to be researched. John died in October 1796 in Caroline County, Maryland and is thought to be buried in that area.

the 4th Maryland Regiment.After the war he went into Guilford County, NC. His brother Nobel waspart of the
Nicholite Church, branch of the Quakers. It is not known ifthey left Maryland together of not. All records show

contacted, William and family did not come toTennessee until 1816, But, he has found records showing William
and mostof his family in Maury County, Tennessee as early as 1803. However,Levin Lewis Covey did not leave
North Carolina until 1816. He was alsoa minister, probably a Methodist.
