Benoni Matteson

Nearly all Mattesons in the United States can trace their heritage back to Henry and Hannah (Parsons) Matteson of Rhode Island. Some other common spellings of the Matteson surname are Mattison, Mathewson and Madison. Some of the towns in which our Matteson ancestors lived were: East Greenwich, West Greenwich, Exeter, Coventry, Warwick, and Providence Rhode Island, Bennington and Shaftsbury Vermont, and several places in New York State before spreading out all over America. This website has provided free historical and genealogical information on the Matteson family since June 27, 2002! Follow us on Facebook.
