Matthew Forey, Judsonia, Arkansas 1870s

In working on Baptist history in Arkansas prior to 1900, I've run across a Matthew Forey (sometimes spelled Fory) who brought settlers from Chicago to Arkansas and founded a Baptist college in Prospect Bluff (which they renamed Judsonia)in the 1870s. He was evidently educated in New York state and was for a time the president of Judson (Judsonia)University and a chaplain of the AR Legislature once. I'm trying to construct a bio sketch of him, and if anyone can help, I'd be most appreciative.
