Daniel Matthews of Searsmont

Can anyone provide any information (or even speculation) about the parents and origins of DANIEL MATTHEWS of Searsmont, Maine? He appears on the census in Hancock County in 1800, 1810 and 1820. In assorted databases online he is claimed to have maried Mercy Prescott on 23 February 1796, and to have had at least four children: sons Morrill, Bickford and Noah, and daughter Lois. Unsourced references say that he was born in Durham, NH in 1766 and died in Searsmont in 1826. There's no Matthews that I can find on the 1790 census in Hancock Co., except for an Abigail Matthews - perhaps his mother?

Thanks for any information or clues.
