I got an email from Jim Cady giving me the information on Matthias.
Mattie was a colorful roanoke charactor, a genuinely nice guy. Lots of people would know him by his first name or description only. Recently He helped to do the Machinist work on the brass pole legs for the table at station #1. Because of that, I thought it might make a good post for your blog.
If anyone has anything to add please let me know.
