Since December 20, 2005 the Matteson.us website has been owned and maintained by Ken Matteson, 6th great grandson of Henry and Hannah (Parsons) Matteson.
This website was first created on June 27, 2002 by Betty (Matteson) Rhodes after maintaining several earlier sites on family genealogy.
DNA testing is being done by FamilyTreeDNA.
Nearly all Mattesons in America can trace their heritage back to Henry and Hannah (Parsons) Matteson of Rhode Island. This website is intended for the sharing of both historical and genealogical information for their descendants.
This website is an independent endeavor and all expenses with regard to this website; registration fees, hosting fees, etc., are paid for out of pocket by myself. You can help improve the database by sending me any additions or corrections.
My loving wife of the last 30 years passed away in late April of 2020. I am living on a fixed income and with each passing year it gets more difficult to maintain the database and my website. I can only say Thank You to all of the many contributors over the years who either provided additional data or cash to help keep the site going. Without your help this website would not be what it is today. Please make the best use of this database as the next year could always be it's last.
