Laura BULFINCH of Jefferson County, Watertown,NY daughter of Jonathan BULFINCH and Clarissa STERNS, b. June 18, 1827 in Watertown NY, d. 1897 in Ashtabula County OH, married to Wakeman MATTESON. I have information on the BULFINCH family. However, I do not have ANY information on Wakeman MATTESON. Wakeman is my gggrandfather and my brick wall--the brick wall I most want to break down this year! Laura's parents came to Ashtabula County,OH so I want to assume that she went with her parents to OH and then met Wakeman Matteson. However,I do not find Wakeman Matteson in any of the census. Any ideas on how to proceed for this beginner?
