I am searching for information on my father, (Leonard William Matteson)'s family. I believe he was born in the town of Harris, in Anderson county, Kansas. His father was William A. Matteson and his mother was Josephine (Graham) Matteson. Josephine's mother's maiden name was Walker. She was supposenly a cherokee.We lived on the Charles E. Young farm, 8 miles north of Westphalia, Kansas, when I was born in 1942. My mother, Dema (Mathews) Matteson died, while living there, when I was 5 years old.
