Mansfield Ohio News, Jan. 10, 1928
Daniel Matson was the son of Asa Matson and Dolly Clevenger. He was born on Feb. 13, 1842 in Clinton County, Ohio and was the brother of my gg-grandmother Mary Matson Creeden. The Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.) mentioned in the obituary was a fraternal organization of Civil War veterans who had served in the Union Army.


  1. A family of 13. Large families are a blessing.

  2. Yes, they are. It's hard to imagine having 13 kids! Thanks for stopping by.
