Matlack, Timothy 1730-

Patriot; born in Haddonfield, N. J., in 1730; was a member of the Society of Friends, or “Fighting Quakers,” as the members of the society were called who took an active part in the Revolutionary War, like General Mifflin. Matlack was most active in every patriotic movement from the time of the Stamp Act until the end of the war, serving in the councils of the inchoate nation and as colonel of a Pennsylvania battalion of troops. He was in the civil service of Pennsylvania after the war, and in all places was distinguished for thorough uprightness. He died near Holmesburg, Pa., April 15, 1829.
