Born: January 21, 1767, Germantown, New York. Died: May 27, 1848, Hempstead, Long Island, New York. Buried: Methodist churchyard, Hempstead, Long Island, New York. Matthias moved to New York City as a young man, and attended the John Street Methodist Church. He was licensed as a Methodist preacher in 1793, and four years later Bishop Asbury ordained him a deacon. He entered the "itinerant connection" in 1811, and in 1813 Bishop McKendree ordained him an elder. He pastored at a number of locations in New York, and by 1836 was in Huntington, where he wrote Deliverance Will Come. In 1841, failing eyesight forced him to retire to Hempstead, Long Island.
