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.
