New Jersey, USA
|Death: ||Oct. 9, 1864|
Joseph married Sarah Ervin in Somerset County, Pennsylvania in 1803 and settled there on a farm east of the Youghiogheny River. About 1816 the growing family moved to Preston County, West Virginia. They had the following children: Mary, William, Julia, Lydia, Samuel, Delilah, Joseph, Josiah, John, Zachariah, and Elijah. With the exception of William and John, all of the grown sons would settle in northeast Missouri. Joseph and Sarah followed around 1850 along with their recently widowed daughter, Delilah Raymond, and her children. Delilah and her family later settled in Montana. The other daughters, Mary, Julia, and Lydia, remained in Preston County.
Joseph's parentage has not been proven. Family lore says he was the only child of Joseph Matlick/Matlack and Julia Scott, the father dying while Joseph was young, as a result of injury or illness incurred while a soldier in the Revolutionary War. The mother later married a man named Cuchler/Cucklar. This information is based on History of the Matlick Family written by Jacob G. Matlick. However, no supporting documentation has been found of a Joseph Matlick/Matlack marrying a Julia Scott or of them having a son named Joseph. Contrary to the many DAR and SAR applications, researchers have determined that the facts and dates for the revolutionary soldier, Joseph Matlack, do not fit with this story.
Y-dna testing of descendants of three different sons of Joseph Scott Matlick indicate he is a descendant of William Matlock, who came from England in 1677 to Burlington, New Jersey. Interestingly, the strongest y-dna match is with a descendant of William's great grandson, William B. Matlack.
