1.Heman Swift7 Mattson (James6,Isaac5,Joshua4,John3,John2,Thomas1) b. 2 Nov. 1801, Pittsford, VT, m.1) 1825 Persis Webber, dau. of William and Lois (Baldwin) Webber, m.2) Polly ?Wellman, b. 1808. Persis transfered into the Panama Baptist Church in 1826 (the last confirmed record of her) while Heman joined 1828. He moved to Meadville, PA in 1836, but returned in 1838 (although he and Polly did not rejoin the Panama church until 1848). He was blind by age 40, and was admitted to the alms house for this reason. It is not clear when his first wife died, and the second marriage occured, but Polly was his wife by 1842, and probably 1838. Thus, it is not clear which wife was mother of the middle children, although based on the continual birth record from Persis on, it would appear that only James was child of the first wife, he being the only child shown in Webber family records.
