Hi Bev, Do you find any Matteson's in your family history? We have been told that we are related somehow to Tecumseh but can only go as far back as our Gr. Gr. Grandfather William Tecumseh Matteson. The information we have is all by word of mouth. My grandfather, William Clayborn Matteson use to say it was something we kept quiet. I think it was because at the time he told my mother they were still looking for Indians who escaped from the Trail of Tears. My grandfather truly look like he was Native American, however, we were also told we were Cherokee. I was told that with the Shawnee nation growing short in number that the Cherokee adopted them. Wm. T. Matteson was born about 1825 in Ohio and that's all we know except he was married in Muhlenburg, Ky and then moved to Pike Co. Indiana. Can you help? Charlene
