In Reply to: Re: LASSEN/ METZGEN FAMILY by Trinity Metzgen of 115

Hi Trinity,

My name is Andrew Ballen. Ready for some confusion? :) My family is from Jamaica and Belize. I currently reside in China. I too am a direct descendant of the Metzgens (Monrad etc). My great-grandmother's maiden name is Emma Jane Metzgen, she was either a sister or cousin of Monrad (still unclear). She definitely had one brother named Herman Metzgen. She married a gentleman named John Coleman, a couple that gave birth to my grandmother. My grandmother met and married a gentleman from Jamaica, while studying at teacher's college in Belmopan, Sam Wilson, they gave birth to 3 children, the 2nd of which, my mother, Sandra Wilson, was born in Belmopan in 1951.

I am also trying to learn more about the Metzgens of Belize and would appreciate any further information you can forward along.

My name is Andrew Ballen, son of Sandra Wilson (Coleman/Metzgen) and Dr. Patrick Ballen of Jamaica. My family currently resides in North Carolina, where my father practices medicine.

As we may be related(?), you can take a look at what I do in China of all places here.

My email address is feel free to contact me if you've anything to share!

Warm Regards,
