Matinicus on the Unincorporated 1837 was probably Matinicus Rock, which had a lighthouse built there in 1827. In 1834, a "castle" was built for the keeper's family. John Shaw and family were listed in the 1830 federal census. Samuel Abbott was listed in the 1840 federal census.
Matinicus the island itself was considered a part of Vinalhaven until 1840
Its population was much larger in 1830 and 1840 included more than two families.
