Great-Great-Great-Grandfather Erick Mattson1834-1901


Grandfather Mattson was born in 1834 in Copenhagen. He died in August of 1901.

Grandpa and Grandma Mattson came from Sweden (son Charles'death certificate) and "were a very good couple." They bought a homestead one and a half miles from Ortonville, MN.

Great-Great-Grandfather Charles Edward Mattson1865-1931


Grandpa Mattson was born May 20, 1865 (death certificate) in Sweden (death certificate, 1900 census), married February 27, 1888 Dora Ella Jones, and died March 24, 1931 (dc.) at University Hospital in MineapolisMN of benign prostate hypertrophy for which he had had an operation March 12. He was buried in Ortonville by the Washburn Mortuary March 26. His newspaper obituary listed him as "resident of this city for more than 40 years."

He is listed as a farmer, born in Sweden, immigrating to the United States in 1870, according to the Big Stone Township, Big Stone County, Minnestota 1900 US census.

"[Charles' brother] John wasn't much of a man, but Charles was a very good man. Charles was a very good violin player. After Charles married Dora, father Charles and Dora used to play for dances. Then Charles got to drinking and neglecting his farm horses and everything. His father talked to him and he took the Keelecure and didn't drink for 3 years. Then he started again and so his father took his farm (Neverlust Farm) away from him. Marvelle [Dora's sister] lived with them when she was 11 or 12 years old and took care of the children. Charles was so drunk he couldn't even go to his parents' funeral.

"When [her daughter] Amy was 18 years old, Dora decided to call it quits on being housewife and mother and left home in June to find a job. Amy had been in Minneapolis 6 months and decided to go home in July when [Amy's brother and sister-in-law] Clara and Lyman asked her and [her sister] Margretta to take [Clara & Lyman's son] Percy home with them to Ortonville. Amy wanted to go home and see her younger brother and sister. Percy was a small baby still on the bottle. She carried him several blocks as he couldn't walk. There were 9 of the family at home to cook, wash, and clean for without Percy. She made it somehow for a short time until her Dad tried to tell her she had to have his permission to go out. So Amy just packed up and left while her dad was out. Lyman picked up Percy later. Agness was 12 and could cook a little but their grandmother done the washing and baking at her home until the kids were put in an orphanage. Dora was working some place but thought she would be home soon. She didn't write to the family at that time (a couple months), but she never wrote much any time she walked away from home. The kids never heard from her until November 1915, asking for money to visit her parents in Ortonville after five years in the West. Amy sent the money and Amy didn't hear from her mother for another five years. Dora just wanted to stay away from her family and enjoy life in her own way. After the kids got married she wrote to them off and on until she died. Amy took care of Dora in1942 for a couple of months and buried her in California. Dora told her second husband she only had ten children as she was conscious of having thirteen."

--H A Larkin Clerk Districk Court Big Stone County OrtonvilleMN.


Helen Olson (daughter of Charles' son Lyman) remembers her grandfather living with them. He was supposed to be watching the kids while the parents were working. She remembers her job (at age 7) was changing her little brother Raymond's diaper because grandfather didn't like that job.


(Dora Jones) b.OH I was so fortunate to have mailed to me by Helen Matson-Olson a letter from Dora to her brother Bernard Jones in her own handwriting, dated February 21, 1940 from BreaCA:

"Well I have tried to get these dates down so one could tell some things of Our Familys and I think they are O.K. and I wish I could tell you of many good dates but I can not take it down in good words. But here are a few words that some of the Familys think that Grandfather was a drinking man, and all so that Pa was, but they were not of that type they might take there tody and they were good men as far as all good people were. Grandfather Jones was of a Royal descendant and if you Bernard look back you yourself can see the that trate of carecter crop out in many of us. This is true because many a times I have had Grandpa tell me he had Blue Blood in him and there was many of women told I must of had Blue Blood in me that I carried my self that But we I should not worry about that.

I am going to tell you I have a letter of Great Grandfather I do no remember that Date now. There is a think I must tell you of grandpa it was at the time that he lived on the Island and he came down to Big Stone City sell Hogs or meat, and He was not dress like a gentleman , But He and a friend came over to Ortonville to see "Buffalo Bill" when he was with wild west show in the 1900. Well Charles and I were at the show we came in was on the fifth row of seats and in looking around saw Grandpa two seats below us well he saw us and passed the time of day. The show was on. Well how good those stunts were I do not remember but biggest stunt was Buffalo Bill himself. He came on the arena with that Beautifull Horse of his and how he could shoot those glass balls I do Remember andt he amount of them he was to shoot but any he did not miss any of them. Then is when Grandpa jumped up and yeld out "Well done, Buffalo, well done," and then Buffalo Bill came up in front of Grandpa andtook of his fine fathered hat and bowed and waved his Hat and the Horse bown down on one need to Gradpa, well there was when the People just rose up and waved called and called, what a time they had. I was so astonded at it all. that was the bigest thing I ever saw in my life. Grandfather could not say anything more Was that a great hounor? I think so. Just keep this letter and think of Our People. Sometime I do wish I might Tell you many thing of Our life when you a little boy and when we lived in Ohio for I was 7 years when we came to Minn. and I went to school there and remember all about our trip to Minn. of Gradpa home in Ohio and all of them and saw the Places when I went to Ohio in 1918 back to Clyde, Freemont, and my other places.

"Mother said that Grandpa was John Jacob Batdorff and that is the right way to spell the name. He was Born Dauphin Co, Penn May 3 1806. Died July 10--1870 Delta Ohio.

"Christina Busch b. Oct 24--1818 Adams Co Penn. Died Aug 31--1884 Delta Ohio.

"The children born Batdorff. Cathrine B Oct 21 1839 Wayne Co Ohio. d.Aug 31--1918 PawPaw, Mich.

"John and Elizabeth b.Sept. 2--1841 WayneCo. John Died Nov 1-1911 Elizabeth Died Delta Ohio June. 1928

"Andrew Jackson B. Sept. 7-1845 Wayne Co. Ohio. D. Nov. 7-1918 Claremont Co Ohio

"Mary L. B.Oct. 10th 1848. Wayne Co D.Sept. 16-1935 Tumwater, Washington

"This dates are from an old Bible that Aunt Lib had and it was Grampa Batdorff Bible Della Crile sent me the Dates about 1926 I beleave and Mother told me many of the date so they O.K. and she told of Aunt Opha age as near as she could remember. Now Bern I have taking many hours to these Books and day s to gather the dates from the Folks Billy help me write and I have sent a lot of them I hope you enjoy this Book as much as I did and getting them ready for you I will write the names down again with the Birth Places.

"Aunt Orpha not down on the roll but ma said she b.Aug 1865 or about then. And she married Gary Smith of Fulton Co Delta Oh . I remember her very well.

Great-Grandmother Edith Mattson1895-1974

Gramma was born July 17, 1895 in Ortonville, a city of nearly 3000 now, located at the foot of Big Stone Lake which forms the boundary line between Minnesota and South Dakota for 36mi. The Minnesota River begins there. It has 16 granite quarries. Due to a band of Sioux who swept across the Big Stone Lake area 8/21/1862, killing whites, western Minnesota was practically deserted. Only six houses were in Big Stone County up to August of 1870.

She married David Jackson Hinsch 4/8/15 in Wilbaux, Montana. Read about his family in the Hinsch chapter.

She died April 23, 1974 in Hicksville DefianceCoOH.

Other chapters of my family include the Yochums, and the Stahls.
