Hi,

maybe it was not Hesse but the county Hessen. If so your folks could be descendants from the miller metz in Harle.
See: http://www.mathstat.dal.ca/~dilcher/Harle/geschichte.html
(sorry all in German).

However, for that family branch someone had once put a book together and I can trace the roots back into the 14 hundrets. I can try to find your folks. I remember seeing that some people immigrated to the states.

Best regards, Carsten Metz
