I am a descendant of Wanton and Eunice Louisa (Ensign) Matteson m. in Nelson, New York. One of their daughters Louisa Freelove Matteson m. Orlando J. Reese and they had 3 daughters that I know of and perhaps a son.

In Livingston Co. they were living near L.Freelove's sister and brother. Her sister Elizabeth m. Eli White and her brother Isaiah Ensign Matteson and his family.
