  Research Notes:

A small handful of sources show Sophia Scarborough's father as Mathias or Mathew Scarborough. As I have been unable to find corroborating evidence, this name does not appear in my genealogy. A generation later, there was a Mathias Scarborough who was prominent in Maryland and well documented, but unrelated as far as I can determine.
