Pen Name: None Connection to Illinois: Nehemiah Matson was an early Illinois settler and wrote extensively about the earlier French and Indian inhabitants. Biography: Nehemiah Matson was a Princeton resident and was one of the most prolific and entertaining amateur historians of the nineteenth-century llinois. Because of his indiscriminate mixing of fact and legend, however, scholars generally discount his books as valid sources. But he does providevaluable clues for the researcher, and some of his apparently legendary tales can be verified.
