1880 I already sent: HE is living with daughter Amy and her family James Ostrander age 63 no mention of the others. wife  is gone
As one can see the name keeps moving.  Since my Madison came from same area of Petersburg New York
I suspect we should do close checking our lines for a connection.  I see a George in your line

 Wondering if Horatio could be sibling of my Susan?  Anything is possible.


  1. Susi.. my cousin was working on this line, but no longer doing any research due to serious illness. At the time he quit, he had no other information on Horatio, so could possibly have some connections to your line.

  2. Hi Susi, I'm researching George W Matteson, Horatio's son. Would you have any information on his wife Mary A. Vincent?
