Julius H. Matthey (1851-1924), the youngest child of Jules H. and Emma Hacker Matthey, came to Texas in 1872. He settled in Bexar County, where he taught school for a number of years. Matthey eventually settled in the town of Losoya, where he established a general merchandise store that he operated from about 1895 to 1911.
The collection contains correspondence, legal documents, financial records, and printed material associated with several members of the Matthey family. The earliest material includes letters of Jules Matthey and his wife Emma Hacker Matthey. Most of the later material is associated with their son, Julius H. Matthey, and includes land records, insurance records, and letters.
