According to "Mary Mattoon and her Hero of the Revolution," published in 1902 by the Mary Mattoon Chapter of the D.A.R. and a published letter of Ebenezer Mattoon, Jr., the geneology goes roughly like this:
Philip "Mattun" - emigrant from Scotland, was sent from Marlboro with 47 other men 1767 to the Connecticut River Valley to defend settlers from Indian attack. Later married Sarah Hawks. Moved to Deerfield in 1688 or thereabouts, and died in 1696.
Philip's son Eleazer was born 1690 and died in 1767.
Eleazer's son Ebenezer Sr. was born in 1718 and married Dorothy Smith of Hadley in 1747. No information is given about his death.
Ebenezer Mattoon, Jr. was christened August 4, 1755 in Amherst. He was later a Revolutionary War general.
I hope this helps.
