52 Weeks Down One. MADISON, MATTISON

52 Weeks Down One.

Week 51 is,  do I continue on with Haines collateral names or move to another.

Suspecting another name may be more interesting to others since that one did not generate any feedback.

So sharing what little information I have on a major brick wall.

SUSAN MADISON/MATTISON  was born, surely she was not hatched, or came down from a space ship.  She might just as well have for the lack of information, though many have attempted to assist, including several years ago the Mattison Association worked with me a bit also. Every Susan they had was married to someone else and died in a different place.

Family lore is she  married Noyes JONES in about 1832 near Holyoke, Mass.  Family lore says she was born in MASS.  Census data implies she was born four different places. Interesting right?
She definitely must have been married to Noyes Jones, they had many children together and moved from New York to Iowa. She died there 13 Feb 1881 Chickasaw Co., IA.  They lived in Nunda, Ill after leaving New York and after the CW they moved to Iowa. Loosing a son in the war. Yes, I have read his papers.

She is listed on the census as spouse of Noyes Jones so marriage was somewhere. ?

Posting the census information that has been gathered.   Also want to say there was family concern over her birthdate, being between 1812 and 1818 which is on tombstone. 24 March .

@I found it interesting that the JONES brand found in Petersburg, NY was the same brand my Dad used in Valley Ford, CA.  We never knew this, Dad would have been so pleased.

Petersburg Historian has sent me data on JONES but alas MADISON/MATTISON is a void.

Finding this information, I suspect he is her younger brother:
 1870 census Riverton, IA next to Noyes and Susan Jones

The lineage is like this:  Susan Madison JONES  had probably 9 children. Loosing Noel in NY and a  girl in Nunda, Ill I found on census. 

Susan had Calvin whom had Carl whom had Dad whom had myself. also a Susan Jones until marriage.
