Descendants of Thomas Matson

The biggest part of this information was gleaned from "The Matson Genealogy" which is on file at the Connecticut State Library. I believe it takes the family down 7 generations. My GGGGgrandfather, Zebah Weed Matson, was the last generation in my line that was listed in the document. This document as been on file since the 1920's. I have been documenting the information as I receive it, and you'll notice my notes. Any changes or additions will be welcomed. Please email me with your information. This is a very long document, so don't just click "Print". Thank you.

In his will, dated 9 June 1676 and proved 26 April 1677, "Thomas Mattson Senior of Boston ... smith, being aged and weak of body," bequeathed to "my dear & well beloved wife Amy Mattson the sum of £10 in money with all her wearing apparel for her to dispose of as she shall see meet"; "my said wife shall have the use ... of the house in which I now dwell with all the land now belonging to the same ... also all my household goods & plate for & during the term of her natural life"; to "my son Thomas Mattson all that my now dwelling house & land adjoining ... after my said wife's decease, he the said Thomas Mattson paying unto my son John Mattson the sum of £34 in money"; to "my daughter Abigall Wheatly wife of Lyonill Wheatly the sum of £14 in money"; to "my son Joshua Mattson the sum of £94 in money"; to "my daughter Abigall Wheatly wife of Lyonall Wheatly and to her children all that piece or parcel of land which I promised to give her upon & before her marriage"; to "my loving son-in-law Lyonall Wheatly the sum of £60 in money as a token of my love, which said sum he now owes unto me"; to "my son John Mattson all my half part of the shop that is now in the ... occupation of the said John Mattson ... at the head of the great dock in said Boston, with all my land behind the said shop"; to "my said son John Mattson the sum of £30 which said sum I formerly lent him and is still remaining in his hands"; to "my son Joshua Mattson the sum of £20 in money which said sum I formerly lent him"; residue at wife's decease "equally divided between my four children, namely Thomas Mattson, John Mattson, Joshua Mattson & Abigall Wheatly"; "my dear & loving wife Amy Mattson & my loving sons Thomas Mattson & Joshua Mattson" joint executors [SPR 6:182-85].

The inventory of the estate of "Thomas Matson Senior" was taken 20 April 1677 and totalled £735 8s. 6d., including £300 in real estate: "Housing, shop and the land, leaving what is bequeathed to Abigail Wheatley," £300 [SPR 12:143-44].

In her will, dated 28 February 1677/8 and proved 1 May 1678, "Amy Matson of Boston ... widow, being aged and weak of body, ... considering that my loving husband Thomas Matson deceased did in his last will & testament leave me some small matter to dispose of" bequeathed to "my grandchild Amy Mattson the daughter of my son John Matson £8 ... and my black gown and mohair petticoat & all my cloaks and my two best scarves and my Bible"; to "my daughter-in-law Mary Matson the wife of my son Thomas Matson my cloth serge petticoat"; to "my grandchild Thomas Matson the son of my son Thomas Matson 10s."; to "my grandchild Hannah Mattson the daughter of my son Thomas Matson 10s."; to "my daughter-in-law Jane Matson the wife of my son John Matson my jumpe"; to "my grandchild Mary Matson my murray-colored [i.e., purple-red, like that of the mulberry] petticoat and one scarf"; to "my daughter-in-law Elizabeth Matson the wife of my son Joshua Matson my red cloth petticoat and my cloth waistcoat that hath a silver and gold galloone upon it"; to "my grandchild Abigail Wheatly the daughter of my daughter Abigail Wheatly deceased 20s. in money to help toward her bringing up"; "my grandchild Amy Matson may have a featherbed & bolster and two blankets and a rug"; to "my grandchild Martha Wheatly ... a long broad box which my daughter Abigail Wheatly deceased did often desire of me and I promised to give it her & now after her decease I do give the same unto my said grandchild Martha Wheatly her daughter"; remainder of clothing to "grandchild Amy Matson the daughter of my son John Matson"; "my trusty and well beloved friends Jeremiah Fitch and John Oldin Senior" overseers [SPR 6:233].

BIRTH: About 1602 (deposed 26 January 1674[/5] aged seventy-three years [SJC #1432]). (He also deposed 2 March 1663 aged fifty years [SJC #607]. This would make him only seventeen when he arrived in New England, at which time he had already been a member of one of the independent churches of London; this seems too young, and there may be a simple scribal error of "50" for "60.")

DEATH: Between 9 June 1676 (date of will) and 26 April 1677 (probate of will).

MARRIAGE: By 1633 AMY CHAMBERS, born say 1613, daughter of Thomas Chambers of Assington, Suffolk (see her sketch). She died between 28 February 1677/8 (date of will) and 1 May 1678 (probate of will).

ASSOCIATIONS: Amy (Chambers) Matson was elder half-sister to the first wife of Theodore Atkinson Sr. of Boston and aunt to John Pickering of Hartford (see AMY CHAMBERS sketch).

COMMENTS: On 20 November 1637 "Thom[as] Matson" was disarmed as a supporter of Wheelwright and Hutchinson [MBCR 1:212]. About 22 November 1637 he was one of those who withdrew their support for the petition in favor of Wheelwright and Hutchinson [WP 3:513].

Thomas Matson was a member of the jury which petitioned the General Court with regard to the judicial misbehavior of WILLIAM ASPINWALL, as a result of which Aspinwall was removed as county recorder on 23 October 1651 [MBCR 4:1:68].

AMY CHAMBERS

"Amy Chambers" was admitted to Boston church as member #140 [BChR 14], which would be in the autumn of 1632.

In a letter of 14 March 1632/3 to John Winthrop Jr., John Bluett of Groton, Suffolk, sent greetings to many of his former neighbors and acquaintances, including Anne Chambers (probably a misreading for "Amie") [WP 3:108].

COMMENTS: On 28 July 1640 "Thomas Matson of Brayntree in New England gunsmith and Anne his wife" made a release "unto Mrs. [blank] Chambers widow & executrix of the last will & testament of Thomas Chambers Citizen & Clothmaker of London deceased for £20 part of their legacy" [Lechford 273].

On 13 April 1670 Theodore Atkinson Sr. of Boston made a deed to the children of Thomas Matson "for the natural love & affection which I bear towards my brother-in-law Thomas Matson Senior of Boston aforesaid & Anne his wife which was sister to my first wife Abigail" [SLR 6:333].

Following up on these clues, the will of Thomas Chambers, citizen and clothworker of London, dated 14 August 1638, was examined [PCC 145 Lee]. Thomas Chambers died without surviving issue, and made bequests to his mother-in-law [i.e., stepmother] Alice Chambers, and to many siblings, including "my sister Amy Matson" (£55) and "my sister Abigall Chambers" (£20), and made his wife Mary Chambers the residuary legatee.

Thomas Chambers of London also named in his will "my nephew John Pickering." On 27 August 1660 "John Pickering, late servant of Theodore Atkison, feltmaker in Bostowne," made his will at Hartford, and, after providing for debts, bequeathed "the remainder of my estate, both in this Country & England, ... to my dear Ant. Matson of Bostowne, & her heirs forever, as a token of my love" [Manwaring 1:144].

Thomas Chambers made a bequest to "the poor of the parish of Asin in the County of Suffolk." Although this did not in the record copy appear to be an abbreviated parish name, it turned out to be Assington in Suffolk, a parish not far from Groton, and one from which several New England immigrants derived. (On 9 April 1617 Adam Winthrop, father of Governor JOHN WINTHROP, noted in an almanac that "Thomas Chamber went to London to be an apprentice" [WP 1:198; see also WP 3:80], surely referring to this Thomas.) There are many Chambers entries in the Assington parish register, including the burial on 8 June 1630 of "Mr. Thos. Chamber," aged seventy-six. This led to the will of "Thomas Chamber of Assington ... Clerk," dated 7 June 1630, which included bequests to "Alice my beloved wife," and to "my daughters Margaret, Amie & Marie" [Consistory Court of Norwich, O.W. 117]. He clearly did not name all his children, and certainly not his daughter Abigail. One of the witnesses to the will was John Bluett, presumably the author of the 14 March 1632/3 letter cited above.

THOMAS MATSON had wife Amy by October 1633 when his first child was baptized in Boston, whereas Theodore Atkinson apparently did not marry until about 1640. These dates are consistent with the 1638 will of Thomas Chambers of London. The wills of Thomas the father and Thomas the son clearly read "Amy," and so THOMAS MATSON married by 1633 AMY CHAMBERS, daughter of Thomas Chambers, minister at Assington in Suffolk, and Theodore Atkinson married her younger sister Abigail, who was baptized at Assington on 5 December 1615. (No baptism for Amy was found at Assington. The reading of "Anne" in the published version of several New England records must be a misreading of "Amie," the spelling used in her father's will. From various clues in the English records, not detailed here, it is apparent that Amy was an elder halfsister of Abigail.)

Many more relationships were stated in the wills of Thomas Chambers the father and Thomas Chambers the son than have been reported here, and it may be that additional connections to other New England settlers may be traced through this family.

Notes for JOHN MATSON:

A Tempest in a Small Town - The Myth and Reality of Country Life - Granby, Connecticut 1680 - 1940 by Mark Williams

Chapter II, page 110

 

"Of those four, John Matson presents the most interesting success story, and a good illustration of the opportunities Salmon Brook offered to enterprising individuals. Born in Boston to a family of gunsmiths in 1664, he had come to Simsbury as a relatively young bachelor with his partner James miles, settling first in Scotland, and then venturing, in 1686, to Salmon Brook where he was offered better meadow land. Sometime before 1692 he married Mary Addams (probably the sister of other migrants from Massachusetts, Samuel and Daniel Addams) with whom he raised a family of six. Even as late as 1696, however, he was still near the bottom of the economic scale in Simsbury, according to the tax list that year, but he was higher up than he had been in 1693. He was not even allowed to take in his partner's widiw (or abandoned wife) while he and Mary were building their lives at Salmon Brook. Yet over the years, he gradually added to his land holdings, picking up land at Crooked Brook, in the East Woods and , eventually, some 200 acres "under Manatuck" and "at the sawmill." He received grants, upon asking, in recognition of his value to the community (apparently Simsbury was anxious to have hium as an "outliver"), as well as his obvious ability to make use of the land. Raising an extra steer or hog here and there, spinning yarn for the neighbors and assisted by their children as they grew in the early 1700's, the couple gradually added to their estate, so that by 1728, when John died, his inventory amounted to 382 pounds. in a society that still tried to pay attention to "estate and dignity," the Matsons are an example of the reality of opportunity, even for the poorest, on the frontier.

Led by people like the Matson, the community of Salmon Brook had survived the worst of times by 1713 when diplomats in Europe signed the Peace of Utrecht..................."

I, John Matson, Sen., yeoman, do on this 28 day of May, 1725, make, ordain and appoint this my last will and testament: I give to my eldest son, John Matson, Jr., the lott or parcell of land which I bought by way of exchange of my brother George Haies, being half of his whole lott commonly called the upper meadow lott, to him and his heirs forever. And whereas I have given him before, by several deeds, severall tracts of land, now this is to cut him off from coming in for any more double portion, and it shall be in full of his portion together with the money he stands now indebted to me, and daily supplies and helps from and by me. I give unto my other two sons, Joshua and Edward Matson, my tract or a parcell of land containing 200 acres given to me by the Town, called the division land, in sd. Simsbury, in equal shares, to them and their heirs forever. I give unto my wife Mary Matson 1-2 of all the remaining part of my estate, both real and personal, as houses, barn, cattle, sheep and swine, and household furniture, and lands and meadows, that is to say, the houses, barn, orchard, land and the meadows, to possess and injoy during her natural life; and the cattle, sheep, swine and household furniture to do as she see good and at her own disposal at her will and pleasure. I give unto my daughter Elizabeth and my sd. two sons, Joshua and Edward Matson, the other half part of my sd. remaining estate, both real and personal, as houses, barn, orchard, cattle, sheep, swine and household furniture, to be equally divided between them, they paying out of the same sum of Pound60 in current money or bills of credit of sd. Colony, that is to say, pound 20 unto my daughter Mary, now the wife of Ebenezer Lamson, and pound 20 unto my daughter Jane, now the wife of George Hayes, Junior, and pound 20 unto my daughter Esther, now single woman or maiden, the payment to be well and truly made within or at the expiration of three years after my decease. I give also unto my sd. daughter and sons, Elizabeth, Joshua and Edward, after the decease of their mother, my now dear and loving wife, all the abovesd. half of my real estate which I have left for her to injoy during her life, to them and each of them an equal share. I appoint my well-beloved wife Mary Matson and my trusty friends John Case, Sen., and Jonathan Westover, both of sd. Simsbury, my executors.

Notes for MARY ADAMS:

"Early Records of Windsor, Ct." found in NEHGR, Vol V, 1851. It begins by stating "In the Town of Windsor, In Connecticut, copied from the first book of records in Windsor, under the date of 18 May, 1674, and with the following preamble by the Recorder: May 18, 1674. I here set down a new genealogy of children that have been born in Windsor and have come to my knowledge to

enter them upon in the old Book that being full there is not place to get in order to find

them. --

Here I enter Parsons as ther [were] upon the latter." It then states {Communicated by Samuel H. Parsons, Esg., of Middletown, Ct., corresponding member of the N.E.H.G.Soc.] It is an extensive list and concludes with Misc. plus First Settlers as recorded in Town Records of 1640 and Monuments in Old Burial Ground, Windsor, CT copied 1842. It is not exclusively marriages.

Notes for JOSHUA MATSON:

from email from Todd A. Farmerie <taf2@po.cwru.edu>, dated 4/10/1998:

The widow of Joshua, Amee Holliday, went to Pittsford with her second husband and her son Isaac (Sr.) (Also there, although I don't recall the timing, was a daughter who married a local family, and another daughter and her husband, Asa, Jr.) Isaac Sr. lived the rest of his life there, and his three surviving children all moved to Troy. Martha (Matson) Preston died there, while James died in Chautauqua and Isaac in W. Pa. (I think)

Notes for ASA MATSON:

From email by Todd Farmerie <taf2@po.cwru.edu>

"I am cataloging all of the descendants of William and Lois (Baldwin) Webber of Columbia Twp. (I descend from Lois, who was a distant cousin of Jabez, Samuel, Eleazer, etc. Baldwin). One of their daughters, Persis, married Heman Swift Mattson, oldest son of James. Our family records show either that she died without children, or had an only son, James. Heman went to Chautauqua, New York, with his father shortly after marriage in 1825. From later records, he had a family of nine children, and by 1941, a wife, Polly. I am trying to figure out when Persis died, and which (if any) of the 9 kids were hers. (Another daughter, Lois Webber, married cousin John Baldwin, son of Jabez, while a granddaughter Martha Preston married Rufus Baldwin, grandson of Samuel. Another grandchild, Charles Webber, married Lucy Baldwin, sister of Rufus, then two of their children married first cousins who were children of another sibling of Lucy and Rufus.) A second relationship comes in to play through the marriages of three more children of William and Lois Webber, Sarah, Almire, and Barnabas Webber to Colburn, William and Lucinda Preston, children of Levi Preston and Martha Mattson, sister of Isaac and James (while another sibling of theirs, Chester Preston, married Rhoda Baldwin, yet another sister of Rufus and Lucy - confused yet?)

The second project is more historical than genealogical. I have put together a group of as many as 10 families which migrated together from Pittsford, VT, to Troy, Pa., in 1807, and in turn were followed by additional relatives. These are: Elisha Rich, Sr., and wife Phebe Batchelder, E. Rich, Jr. and wife, Polly Barnes; her brother Churchill Barns; Phebe Rich and husband Stephen Hickok; James Hickok and wife Polly Oaks; (perhaps Martha Oaks and husband, James Lamb); Isaac Mattson and wife; James Mattson and wife, Susan Amanda Barnes (not related to above Barnes); Martha Mattson and Levi Preston; and Calvin Tinkham. Of these, I descend from J & P Hickok, while Tinkham and S. Hickok are uncles, and then there is the whole Matson/Preston/Webber link above. I am writing up something on this migration, and am trying to collect information on the immediate families of each of these people. From Vermont, I have the various estate papers of Isaac Mattson, Sr., which name all of his children and their spouses. For James Mattson, I can identify sons Heman, John, James, Abel, Charles, and Ithiel, and daughters Annis and Julianne, but there are at least a couple more I am missing. For Isaac Mattson, I have not found him after he left Troy, and am interested in any information you can provide."

The following is the first 2 chapters from papers being written by Patrick J. Eagan concerning the Weed family genealogy:

Introduction

Joseph Weed and Deborah Moses of Simsbury, CT are descendants of two Puritan immigrants that came to New England during the Great Migration of the1630.

Joseph was the great-grandson of Jonas Weed who came to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the late spring of 1630 with the Gov. John Winthrop fleet. Jonas settled in Watertown, MA and moved with others in 1636 and 1637 south along the Connecticut River and settled the town of Wethersfield, CT, the oldest established settlement in the Colony of Connecticut. In 1641 he was an early settler in Stamford, CT and he died there in 1676. Descendants of the line of Jonas Weed to Joseph Weed were in Stamford, Derby, Waterbury and finally Simsbury, where the subject Joseph settled by 1757.

Deborah Moses was the second great-granddaughter of John Moses of Plymouth, MA who came to New England between 1630 and 1640. Her great-grandfather, also named John, was in Windsor, CT in 1647. Her grandfather, another John Moses, was also born in Windsor and was the first of the Moses family to came to Simsbury, CT about 1681.

The author is a fifth great-grandson of Joseph Weed and Deborah Moses through his mother, Mary Frances Maloney, his grandfather, Frederick George Maloney, and his great-grandmother, Sarah Weed.

This work is in four sections, which are:

Joseph Weed and Deborah Moses and their descendants through seven generations,

The ancestry of Joseph Weed, tracing the direct line from Jonas Weed to Joseph Weed,

The ancestry of Deborah Moses, tracing the direct line from the original John Moses to Deborah Moses and

The descendants of Sarah Weed, the daughter of Fellows Weed and Mary Hare, and the author's great-grandmother

Simsbury and granby, connecticut

In the seventeenth century, Simsbury - or Massacoe, as it was originally known - comprised all of that area that today includes the Hartford County towns of Simsbury, Granby, East Granby, West Granby, Canton and North Canton. Although never included within the town limits of Windsor, it was generally considered a parish of that town and the early settlers of Simsbury were from Windsor. In 1642, an act of the General Court specified that, "It is ordered, that the Governor and Mr. Haynes shall have liberty to dispose of the ground upon that part of Tunxus river, called Massacoe, to such inhabitants of Windsor, as they shall see cause."

The first Indian deed for any of this area was given in 1648 by three Indians, Pacatoco, Pamatacount and Youngcoout, to John Griffin with the two witnesses to this deed given on the 28th day of June, 1648 were Windsor residents, George Abbet and John Moses, the great-grandfather of Deborah Moses. Grants of land were made by the General Court to numerous persons but a permanent settlement was not established until about 1664, and it was not until 1666 that a committee, appointed by the General Court, specified the terms upon which Windsor residents may take up land in Massacoe. The first grants of land were made by that committee the following year and it is believed that all of the first settlers were there by 1669. One of those grants in "Weatogue, east" was to John Moses, Sr., Deborah's great-grandfather.

Until 1668 Massacoe was still associated with the town of Windsor but that year the General Court "doth desire that Massacoe, which hitherto hath been an appendix to the town of Windsor, may be improved for the making of a plantation." Further, the Court went on to order the previosly appointed committee to "make such just orders as they shall judge requisite for the well ordering of the said plantation, so they be not be repugnant to the public order of this Colony." As a result of this order, Massacoe had some measure of local control as a plantation and in 1670 the General Court incorporated it as a separate town and the name changed to Simsbury. The Court set Simsbury's boundaries as running "from Farmington bounds to the northward tenn miles, and from Windsor bounds, on the east, to run westward tenn miles."

In 1679, grants of land were made to thirteen families in the Salmon Brook area that was later to become Granby and in 1688 additional lots were granted in the area of Turkey Hills. However, despite the granting of land the population of this section of Simsbury remained quitesmall. In 1709 there were but eleven families, nine on the west side of the Salmon Creek and only two on the east. In 1728 the number of families on the west side had increased to twenty-seven, on the east it had increased to eleven and there were now twenty-four families on the east side of the mountain.

Even though these families had settled a quite distance from the meeting house in Simsbury they still travelled for Sabath and midweek meetings to Simsbury. As a result, two Ecclesiastical Societies were established in 1736 at Salmon Brook and Turkey Hills, and the first meeting of the Salmon Brook Society was held in May of 1739. The following year a Congregational Meeting House was constructed to serve the families of Salmon Brook and Turkey Hills. Finally, on October 12, 1786 the Salmon Brook and Turkey Hills Ecclesiastic Societies were incorporated as the Town of Granby.

In Granby, Joseph Weed and his family lived in the western portion of Granby near the West Branch of the Salmon Brook and an elevation called Tree Hill. Tree Hill is today, I believe, the Weed Hill shown on current maps of Hartford County, Connecticut. As a result of subdividing and creating new towns, the family of Joseph and Deborah Weed lived in three towns - Simsbury, Granby and West Granby - without ever having to move!

Joseph Weed and Deborah Moses of Simsbury, Conn.

1. Joseph WEED, the son of John Weed and Mary Jackson Beaman, was born on 2 Nov 1708, in Derby, New Haven, CT. Joseph was the great-grandson of Jonas Weed, the first of the Weed family in New England who came from England with the Winthrop Fleet in the Spring of 1630. Joseph's father and his family had come from Derby to the Oxford Parish of Waterbury, CT and it was in Waterbury that he married on 5 Jun 1740, Deborah MOSES. At the time of their marriage in Waterbury, Joseph was noted as being "of Derby".

Joseph's wife, Deborah, was born on 3 Nov 1718, in Simsbury, Hartford, CT, the daughter of John MOSES and Hannah HOSKINS ("Debrath Moses third daughter of John Moses of Simsbury was born the third day of November 1718."). She was the great-great-granddaughter of John Moses of Plmouth, MA who came to New England between 1630 and 1640.

On 29 August 1749, Joseph paid Timothy Moses (probably his brother-in-law, and his wife's step-brother) £ 300 for a 113 acre parcel of land located in "1/2 mi. tier lying on Mt. south of Joseph Cases house." The land was bounded on the south on a division lot laid out to the heirs of John Slater; west on the division land; north to a parcel owned by Josiah and Joel Case; and east on land of Josiah and Joel Case, fromerly granted to John Humphrey, long deceased. On 25 June 1763, he deeded a portion of that parcel near the east side of West Mt. to Josiah Case. This parcel was described as, "begin at the West End of tier lots wh. I now live upon at ye N.W. corner of my sd. lots and bounds on my own land, West on the next tier, North on Joel Cases land, S. on undivided land being 8 rods 3/4 in breadth the same in length and number of A[cres] m or l [more or less]." Finally, on 8 January 1768, Joseph deeded to Elijah Tuller the "land bought of Timothy Moses with house barn and orchards, etc."

Joseph died 30 Nov 1771, in Simsbury, Hartford, CT ("Jofeph Weed Departed this Life November 30th 1771."). Following his death, his estate was inventoried by Abel Gofard and Simeon Holcomb on 13 January 1772. "The Inv. of the real & personal estate of Joseph Weed as followeth, viz:"

On the 15th of October, 1772, Dorcas and Hannah, the two daughters of Joseph and Deborah, executes the following, "I Dorcas Weed and Hannah Weed have recd of our Brothers Aaron Weed & Moses Weed of Simsbury the sum of Thirty Pounds lawful money which is in full of our Dues and Demands we have or ever had or ought to have to all or any of our honoured Father Joseph Weed's late of Simsbury Dec'd Estate that is especially two Notes the said Aaron & Moses took of Elijah Tuller of our one hundred and Seventy pounds money which money belonged to our said Father and we do hereby discharge the sd Aaron & Moses from said money and from all other Demands we have or had sd estate Excepting that has been set out & Distributed to us this the above 15th day of Oct as our sd Fathers moveable Estate." Dorcas signed the document, Hannah made her mark and it was witnessed by Francis Barnard and Peter Rice.

The distribution of Joseph's estate was distributed on 19 October 1772 and the distribution was exhibited on 3 November of the same year.

Seven years after Joseph's death a series of documents were executed by his children that would "give and devise" to their mother all of their father's estate. The first in May of 1778 was as follows: "Know all men by these pre that whas - we the Subsc. of Sims in Co. Hart. heirs at law of the Estate of Joseph Weed late of sd Simsbury Decd find by cert. memo, under the hands of said Dec'd signifying that it was his last will and purpose to give and devise to his and our honoured Mother Deborah Weed of sd Simsbury all ye estate both real & personal that belonged to sd Joseph Weed at the time of his death and we being willing to comply with ye will of ye sd Decd do realise qtclaim, resign and relinquish to our sd Honoured Mother all Right Title Claim & Interest we or other of us had have or may have hereafter to any of ye sd estate in manner aforesaid for us and our Heirs and assigns forever. In Witness Thereof we have set our hds and Seals." The document was signed by Aaron Weed, Moses Weed, Dorcas [Weed] Matson, Otheniel Gillet, Jr., and Hannah [Weed] Gillet made her mark. To one side of this is the following note, "Benjamin Weed Signed on the 6th day of Sept. 1795." This note may account for the following in the Granby town records that reads: "Granby October 27 1795 Recvid of Diborah Weed & aron Weed & Moses Weed & Benjamin Weed & Dorcas Matson one Pound Lawfull money in full of all Demands of Law or Equity Whatsoever in witness our hands

Zebah Matson: } Othenial Gillett Jur

Hannah (her mark) Gillett"

Zebah Matson was the grandson of Joseph and Deborah, and is the son of Dorcas (Weed) Matson.

The following month, 15 June 1778, Deborah deeds land to her sons Moses and Benjamin. "For love and good will of my son Moses & Benj. Weed of their Mother Deborah widow and relict Joseph Weed give to my two sons M[oses] & B[enjamin] I pc land - Tree Hill." This parcel was bounded on the North by Thomas Holcomb's land, on the South by Benjamin's land, on the East by her daughter Hannah's land, and on the West by the common or undivided land and lying West of the so-called "long lots." This was a 20 acre parcel that he deceased son Joseph had purchased of his brother Aaron. Of the 20 acres, Moses was given 5 acres and Benjamin was given 15 acres.

Deborah and her children, Aaron, Moses, Benjamin and Dorcas Matson, are listed in order in the 1790 census for Granby and she died on 15 Dec 1809, in Simsbury.

Children:

i Isaac WEED was born 22 Mar 1741, in Waterbury, New Haven, CT, and died 18 May 1741, Waterbury, New Haven, CT.

2. ii Aaron was born 28 May 1742.

3. iii Moses was born 5 Jan 1745.

4. iv Dorcas was born 19 Mar 1747/8.

v Joseph WEED was born 8 May 1757, Simsbury, Hartford, CT. Simsbury town records note: "Joseph Weed the son of Joseph Weed was born the 8th day of May Anno Domini 1757." In October, 1772, following the death of his father, Joseph appeared at the Court of Probate held in Simsbury. "Present Joseph Weed a minor of 15 years of age the 8th day of May last. Apprd before the Ct. and made choice of Moses Weed of sd Sims to be Guardian of his person & estate until he shall arrive to the ae of 21 yrs and the sd Moses apprd and accptd trust to take the care and guardianship of said Joseph until he shall arrive to the ae of 21 yrs. and render and acct of his Gdship to the Ct. when required or to the sd minor when he shall arrive to the ae aforesaid and the sd.

Children of Joseph Weed and Deborah Moses

2. Aaron WEED (1.Joseph1) was born 28 May 1742, in Waterbury, New Haven, CT, and married Sarah SPENCER.

Aaron is first mentioned in the Simsbury records when he sells land in 1768 to Reuben Holcomb. The following year, on 13 April 1769, he received three parcels of land from Timothy and William Thrall of Windsor. (I believe that these two were second cousins, once removed, of Aaron. They are the sons of Timothy Thrall, and the grandsons of Timothy Thrall and Sarrah Allyn, all of Windsor.) The first parcel of land was "at a place called plain Squadron" and was bounded on the East by the "Highway that leads from Old Simsb. to Salmon Brook. In length 3 mi and 3 quarter and laid out to Ephraim Adams" and contained 72 acres. The second parcel, 95 acres, was bounded East by the highway and laid out to Thomas Adams. The third parcel was 100 acres that lead out to Nathaniel Higley. Then on 1 February 1771 Aaron and his brother Moses divide a parcel of land that they had owned jointly.

In October of 1772 there were a series of land transactions that probably dealt with land that had been owned originall by his father. On 12 October, Aaron deeded to his sister Dorcas a 21 acre parcel of land in Salmon Brook on Tree Hill. This land was bounded on the West by their brother Joseph, on the South by land already owned by Dorcas, and on the North by Thomas Holcomb's land.

The following week, on 19 October 1772, he registers four land transactions involving his brothers and sisters. For £ 30 he deeds to his brothers, Joseph and Benjamin, and his sisters, Dorcas and Hannah, a piece of land in Salmon Brook, "it being part of 1 of L[arge] Lot E[ast] of part of sd lot and bounds E. on the Highway that runs from Salmon Br. to Hopmeadow. W. on Land I have sold to Dorcas on Tree Hill so called and it is the E. part of a lot I bought of Thrall containing 80 1/2 A[cres] - 13 rods wide." Also on that same date, he deeded land to his sister, Dorcas, "Land on Tree Hill North of my bro. Moses Dwelling House, B[ounded] N[orth on] Land I have sold to Hannah Weed, S[outh] on Robert Hoskins, W[est] On land I sold to my bro Benj Weed, 25 rds in width, 120 rd leng, 21 A[cres] 20 R[od]." To his brother, Benjamin, he deeds a parcel of land on "Tree Hill so called at West end of my two lots that I had of Thrall & Higley on the S. side thereof b. as follows, N. on Joseph Weeds, E. on Dorcas Weeds, S. on Robert Hoskins, W. on West End of sd lots 25 rods wd. 120 R long. N. * South 21 A[cres] - 20 rds of land." Finally he deeded to his brother, Joseph, land on Tree Hill bounded "S. land sold to Benj., E. Hannah Weed, W. End of sd lot, N. Thos. Holcomb," in all 21 acres.

On 12 February 1774, Aaron sold 18 acres of land that he had previously purchased from Abel Gossard and, on 15 February 1775, Aaron sold land to Ezra Gossard, including 1/3 part of a saw mill. Between those two transactions, on 1 February 1775, Aaron received from his brother, Moses, one half of an 80 acre parcel, bounded by the land of Aaron Gossard and lying on the west side of the river (i.e., the West Branch of the Salmon Brook) and the west side of the highway from the plian to Salmon Brook.

Aaron is listed in the 1790 census for Granby, Hartford County, CT with 2 males 16 years and up, 2 males under 16 years, and 2 females. In 1800 he is the Aaron Weed listed in Barkhamsted in Litchfield County. Aaron died sometime after 1800 in Hannibal, NY, at that time a part of Onondaga County. According to Ellen Northway, a great-granddaughter of Aaron Weed, he came to Hannibal, NY sometime after his son, Cephas (Ellen's grandfather).

vi Deborah WEED was born on 28 Jun 1773, in Simsbury, Hartford, CT ("Deborah Weed the daughter of Aaron Weed by Sarah his wife was born in Simsbury the 28th day of June A.D. 1773.")

8. vii Cephas was born 24 May 1785.

3. Moses WEED (1.Joseph1) was born 5 Jan 1745 in Waterbury, New Haven, CT. He probably married sometime before 1777, Mehitabel PECK, who was born ca. 1753.

Among the numerous land transactions among the children of Joseph Weed in October 1772, was that transaction of 19 October where Moses deeded land to his mother in the Samolm Brook parish on the "Tree Hill so called lying N. of my dwelling house." The land is described as being "bound SW corner edge of rocks a little S. of a Spring at the E. side of my improved land. From Rock running W. by the old chimney of the old house." In addition to the land, he also gave his mother the full use of the South room of his house, along with the chamber above, and 1/3 part of the cellar and 1/3 part of the barn.

On 29 November 1775, Moses received a deed from his brother-in-law, John Matson, "who guar[anteed?] use of lands ets. belonging to my beloved wife Dorcas Matson."

In 1790 Moses built a small saltbox house in West Granby where Moses and his family farmed. This house still stands today and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This house, called the Weed-Enders House for its first and last occupants, has been moved from its original location to 208 Salmon Brook Street in Granby and today is maintained by the Salmon Brook Historical Society.

Mehitable died on 17 Mar 1814, in Granby, Hartford, CT, and is buried in the West Granby Cemetery, Granby, CT. Her tombstone reads:

v David WEED was born on 23 Jan 1789, Granby, Hartford, CT, died there on 22 May 1811, Granby, Hartford, CT, and he is buried in the West Granby Cemetery. David's tombstone reads, "Praises on tombs are trifles / vainly spent. / A mans good name is his / best monument."

13. vi Dan was born 6 Aug 1792.

4. Dorcas WEED (1.Joseph1) was born 19 Mar 1747/8, Waterbury, New Haven, CT. She married first John MATSON and John died sometime before 1790. Following John's death, Dorcas married Israel GRANGER. She died on 23 Mar 1806 in Granby.

Following Dorcas's death in 1806, there was a land transaction involving his son, Zebah. On 31 January 1807, "Zebah W. Matson of Coventry and County of [Chenango] New York for $330. Half of land in a certain farm of land lately the property of my Hon'd Mother Dorcas Matson Granger gave me by will and lyeth in common & undivided with my Brother Lora Case when he was b. 1774 and the one half of dwelling House & barns." Zebah is probably selling his one half interest to his uncle, Benjamin, as there is also a deed for the other half from Lora Case to Benjamin Weed on 27 April 1807.

Children by John Matson:

i Zebah Weed MATSON was born on 2 Jul 1774, Simsbury, Hartford, CT. Simsbury town records, "Zebah Weed Matson ye Son of John Matson by Dorcas his wife was Born in Simsbury the 2nd Day of July A.D. 1774."

ii Dorcas MATSON was born on 9 Nov 1777, Simsbury, Hartford, CT. Simsbury town records, "Dorcas Matson the Daughter of John Matson by Dorcas his wife was Born in Simsbury the 9th Day of November 1777."

5. Benjamin WEED (1.Joseph1) was born on 18 Sep 1761, in Simsbury, Hartford, CT. Simsbury town records note: "Benjamin Weed the son of Joseph Weed was born the 18th day of September Anno Domini 1761." He married Rispah GOODARD, who was born ca. 1761, died 27 Aug 1841, and is buried in the West Granby Cemetery, Granby, CT. Her tombstone in West Granby reads:

RISPAH

Benjamin Weed

who died

Æ 87

Benjamin was made a freeman at the Salmon Brook Society on 20 Sep 1791 and at the annual Town Meting for that same year held on the first Monday of December he was apointed as a Surveyor of Highways.

Benjamin received land for $330 from Lora Case on 27 April 1807. In the deed given to Benjamin the land is described as, "One half of the farm of land and one half of the dwelling house & barn lately owned by my honered Mother [Case's mother] late of Granby; deeded to me by her will & to Zebah W. Matson [the son of Benjamin's sister, Dorcas] & now owned by me and Benjamin Weed in common & undivided it being my right of heirship to my Hond Mother [Dorcas (blotted)] Granger Estate. B[ounded] as follows N[orth] and W[est] on Benj. Weeds land on Estate, East on Rufus Goddard's, South Moses Weeds land. It being all the right and title I have in farm & house lying in Granby in S[almon] B[rook] Soc[iety]. Signed, Lora Case." This is for the other half of the parcel that he purchased from his nephew, Zebah Matson, on 31 January 1807, following the death of Benjamin's sister, Dorcas.

A town record of 1812 attests to the problems caused by stray animals and the use of ear marks used to identify ownership, similar to brands on cattle. "Broke in to the Inclosher of Benjamin Weed 4 sheep 2 Ewes marked with top Cutt of Ear & Slit in the Same & hapney under the Near Ear & 2 Slits in the Near Ear & 2 Lambs Two Slits in Each Ear Entred august 25 1812."

Benjamin died on 12 Jan 1841 in West Granby. Benjamin's will, dated 20 May 1840, and witnessed by Lucy Phelps, Margaret A. Phelps and Elisha Phelps, leaves his wife Rispah "the use and improvement of my household furniture and 1 cow during her natural life having made other provision for he in my deed to my son Samuel." To one Marilda Loomis "wife of George Loomis the use and improvement of the lot of land in Lebonan in the County of Madison, state of New York, which I purchased of one Monger during her natural life." Finally for his children he notes, "Having already giben to my son Benjamin and my dau Betsey Spenser & Rispah Reed all that I Intend to give them of my estate. I g[ive] - d and b all the residue of my estate both real & p[ersonal] to my son Samuel Weed and his heirs forever." His son Samuel was appointed executor for his estate and Joab Griffin and Albert G. Nearing were appointed appraisers. On 1 February 1841 in the Probate Court, a six month period was established to creditors to make their claims to the estate.

Benjamin is buried in the West Granby Cemetery, on the Simsbury Road in West Granby and his tombstone reads:

CHURCHES.--The Second Congregational Society of Coventry was organized Dec. 9, 1822, at a meeting held in the school-house near Pliny Nichols', in said town, which was attended by David Beebe, Samuel Porter, Oliver Trumbull, Jehu Minor, Parson Beecher and many other inhabitants of the town of Coventry, and of which Samuel Martin was chosen moderator and William A. Martin clerk. Parson Beecher, Timothy

Page 289

B. Bidwell and Samuel Porter were elected trustees.

The following named persons were members to Jan. 5, 1824: Samuel Martin, David Beebe, Ralph Johnson, Oliver Packard, Samuel Bronson, Philo Scott, Artemas Goodenough, Paul Beardslee, Gideon B. Minor, Samuel Porter, Calvin Thayer, Mark Scott, Juna Humiston, Ira S. Beardslee, John B. Hodge, Lemuel Beardslee, Jabez Manwarring, Geo. L. Rider, Timothy B. Bidwell, Gilbert D. Phillips, Sheldon Porter, Diodate Cushman, Anson Packard, Justus Dayton, Reuben J. Warner, James Smilie, David Lowry, Parson Beecher, Enoch Johnson, Oliver Trumbull, John Niven, Daniel Rigby, Chauncey Smith, Abel M. Beardslee, Elisha Porter, Case Larkin, D. Packard, Jonathan Atwater, Nathaniel Blakeslee, Elnathan Beebe, Henry Chandler, Reuben Cary, Luther Stork, Joel Smith, Rufus Chandler, Loren B. Porter, William A. Martin, David Chandler, Jeriah Seymour, Zebah W. Matson.

At its organization the Society consisted of twenty-seven members, who withdrew from the First Congregational Church of Coventry for that purpose.

In the early part of 1824 they commenced building their church edifice, which was finished during the year, and dedicated in the early part of 1825. In 1849, the original building being found too small for the accommodation of the Society, it was decided to enlarge and thoroughly repair it, which was done at an expense of about $1,000.

The Church proper connected with this society was organized June 21, 1845, as the Second Congregational Church of Coventry. The original number of members was fourteen, viz: Calvin Thayer, Curtis Stoddard, William A. Martin, David Beebe, Sarah Beebe, Samuel Porter, Lucy Porter, Phebe Martin, Sally B. Beardslee, Phebe Case, Margaret Beecher, Azubah Trumbull, Esther Scott and Patty Porter, all of whom were members of the First Church.

There have been but few changes in its ministry. It had only two settled pastors in the early days of its existence. The first of these was Rev. Ira Smith; the second Rev. Asa Donaldson; but they served for only brief seasons, the Church depending mostly on supplies. The first stated supply was Rev. Seth Burt, who labored successfully, while the Church manifested a steady increase for the space of three years.

In 1829 Rev. John B. Hoyt became the stated supply, dividing his labors between this Church and the First Church of Greene. He was installed pastor of this Church June 19, 1833, and sustained that relation for thirty years. In 1860, owing to feeble health, Isaiah B. Hopwood, then a licentiate of Auburn Theological Seminary, was invited to labor with Mr. Hoyt as stated supply during his summer vacation of that year. In the early part of 1861, Mr. Hopwood having finished his theological studies, was invited to become the pastor of the Church, to which he assented; but his acceptance was af

From email from Todd A. Farmerie <taf2@po.cwru.edu> in response to my question about Asa Matson, Sr., and if he knows how he ended up in Bradford County, Pennsylvania:

I have found a little on him. If I recall correctlyl, there were two Asa's. Asa, Sr. was brother of your John, and had a son Asa, Jr. Jr. married his first cousin, a sister of Isaac, Sr., and ended up in Bradford County. I have not been looking at him as closely, since his migration appears to be unconnected with that of his nephews and nieces. The primary motivating force behind their move was Elisha Rich, Sr., being removed from the pulpit of the Pittsford Baptist Church. The Matsons, Prestons, Barnes, Hickoks, and Oaks were members, and were among the founders of the Troy Baptist Church, in 1807/08.

Notes for EDWIN MATSON:

Edwin Matson, Sr., lumberman and farmer, was born in Chenango county, New York, January 21, 1815, a son of Zeba (or Zebah) W. and Lydia (Merritt) Matson, natives of Connecticut. He was reared and educated in his native country, and when eighteen years of age came to Tioga county and entered the employ of Stowell & Dickinson, who were engaged in the lumber business on Pine creek. Here he remained thirteen years, and then went to Wrightsville, York county, Pennsylvania, where he built and operated saw mills for fifteen years.

Returning to Delmar township, Tioga county, he located on a farm which he had previously purchased. After a few years he went to Northumberland county and again engaged in the lumber business for seven years, and subsequently followed lumbering in Florida for fourteen months. Going to Cleveland, Ohio, he completed an unfinished mill, which he operated for one season, and then returned to his farm in Delmar. In 1881 he erected his present mill in Shippen township, which he has operated successfully for the past fifteen years, under the firm name of E. Matson & Son.

Mr. Matson was married in 1837, to Mary Eberenz, a daughter of William Eberenz, of Delmar, to which union were born seven children, viz: Aurelia, deceased; John W., a resident of Cleveland, Ohio; William E., who served in a battery of New York Heavy Artillery and died of wounds received in the battle of Petersburg; Mary, wife of Charles Derbyshire, of Delmar; Charles, deceased; James H., deceased, and Edwin, junior member of the firm of E. Matson & Son.

Mr. Matson is the owner of one of the largest farms in Delmar township, while his lumber interest in Shippen are extensive and lucrative. He also conducts a store in connection with his mill, which does an annual business of $12,000. Mr. Matson is one of the leading Democrats of the township, and is the present postmaster of Marsh Creek. The family are adherents of the Presbyterian church.

From the 1883 History of Tioga County:

EDWIN MATSON is a native of Coventry, Chenango county, N.Y., and was born in 1815. In 1838 he married Miss Mary Eberenz, of Delmar, in which township he has one of the finest farms. He came to Tioga county in 1832 and engaged in lumbering with Stowell & Dickerson, who in time raised his salary from $10 to $200 per month. Lumbering has been his principal business.

***********************************************************************************

The Matson house was built on land given to Mary by her parents, who lived just over the hill. Their land is still known as "Twin Barns". Mary would only live there if she could see her nearest neighbor. Thus what is now the exit driveway has a clear path to the large house at the mouth of the Heise run.

Notes for WILLIAM E. MATSON:

William E. Matson, at the time of his enlistment, was age 19. His height was 5 feet 4 1/2 inches. His was a light complexion, with gray eyes and brown hair. William listed his occupation as a farmer. His enlistment went from June 5 1863, to July 21, 1864, the time of his death. At his death, he rank was a private.

In 1863, William E. Matson enlisted in the Union Army, the 8th New York Heavy Artillery, in Baltimore, Maryland. This division is one of the most interesting divisions in the Civil War. The soldiers were generally responsible in Baltimore for guarding and escorting prisoners, garrisoning the forts around the city, trying court martial individuals, learning how to operate heavy artillery, and so forth. They were in train wrecks, on boats to the South, fought in some of the worst battles, and their regiment has the dubious distinction of suffering the second highest number of losses on any regiment in the Civil War (the first was Maine) - approximately 60% of all the men.

Private Matson survived the worst battle at Cold Harbor on the 3rd of June, 1864. The principal commanders during the operation were Lt. General U. S. Grant and Major General G. G. Meade for the Union Army - General Robert E. Lee for the Confederate Army. The campaign wa part of Grant's Overland Campaign (May-June 1864), and was principally fought May 31 - June 12, 1864. On May 31, Sheridan's calvalry seized the vital crossroads of Old Cold Harbor. Relying heavily on their new repeating carbines and shallow entrenchments, Sheridan's troopers threw back several attacks by Confederate cavalry. Both sides dug in during the night. Confederate reinforcements arrived from Richmond and from the Totopotomoy Creek lines. On June 1, the Union VI and XVIII Corps reached Cold Harbor and assaulted the Confederate works with some success. By June w, both armies were on the field, forming on a five-mile front that extended from Bethesda Church to the Chickahominy River. At dawn, June 3, the II, VI, and XVIII Corps assaulted along the Bethesda Church-Cold Harbor line and were slaughtered at all points. Grant commented in his memoirs that this was the only attack he wished he had never ordered. The armies confronted each other on these lines until night of June 12, when Grant again advanced by his left flank, marching to James River at Windmill Point. On June 14, the II Corps was ferried across the river at Wilcox's Landing by transports. On June 15, the rest of the army began crossing on a 2,200-foot long pontoon bridge. Abandoning the well-defended approaches to Richmond, Grant sought to shift his army quickly south of the river to threaten Petersburg. In all, 170,000 forces were engaged, with casualties numbering 14,500 - Union 12,000, and Confederate 2,500. It was a Confederate Victory.

William Matson was wounded at the Second Battle for Petersburg on the 22nd of June, 1864, while part of the Second Corps under Hancock, receiving a gunshot wound to the thigh, breaking the femur. He died July 21, 1864, in a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, hospital. He was buried July 24, 1864, in section M, Row 5, Grove 21, of Glenwood Cemetery. During his enlistment, he was a guard with the Confederate prisoners, December 1863. In February of 1864, he was a guard at Locust Point. He never married, and had no children. In 1904, after the death of his father, Edwin, William's mother, Mary, filed for his pension benefit of $12 per month. She received it until her death in 1906.
