History of Hamilton County, Iowa, Vol. II, 1912, J.W. Lee, pp. 229-230.
M. J. Mattice, for ten years a practitioner at the Webster City bar, during which period he has made continuous progress, was born here February 18, 1874, a son of John W. and Emmaretta (Van Bramer) Mattice. The father arrived in Hamilton county when this was a pioneer district in which the work of development and improvement had scarcely been begun. With the business interests of the county he became closely and prominently identified. He became a stock and grain buyer and his operations in that line were quite extensive, and also engaged in banking and subsequently served as president of the Farmers National Bank. He died in California in 1888, at the age of forty-two years. He is survived by his widow, who is a resident of Los Angeles, California.
M. J. Mattice mastered the elementary branches of learning in the public schools of Webster City, and in private schools in California, to which state he removed when thirteen years of age. He subsequently entered for professional training Drake University at Des Moines and was graduated therefrom with the class of 1902, the degree of LL. B. being conferred upon him. His training was thorough and established him so well in his profession that he secured immediate admission to the bar upon examination before the supreme court. He then returned to Webster City, where he has since engaged in practice.
In September, 1906, Mr. Mattice was married to Miss Blanche Russell, a daughter of D. D. Russell, of Reedsburg, Wisconsin, and they reside at No. 925 Water street.
