As you've probably noticed yourself, you are about 80-110 miles away (by car) from all of the New Yorker instructors listed on George Mattson's instructor list:
Christopher Ronzoni: Long Island NY: 516-944-8695
David Finkelstein: New York NY: 212-867-2896
Lawrence H. DeVoe:New York, NY: 917-923-5452
Nancy A. Simoneschi: New York NY: 212-861-1669
Jay Nussbaum: Ithaca, NY: Cornell Uechi-ryu: "http://inet.crp.cornell.edu/students/mk77/uechi-ryu/"

John & JoAnne Stugart: Rotterdam NY: 518-372-8297

You might call or email some of those NY instructors directly to find out if they have any former students who live in your area ... I'm sure they will be glad to help however they can.
Good luck in your search,
