The Jacob I have was born in Rapho Twp. Lan. Co. PA. in 1813 and moved with his family to Clarence, Erie Co. NY in ~1831. Which is the next Co. South of Niagara Co. I have no further data on him personally. Would like nore data.

He is the first Child of Christan Metz b. 1792 & d. 1855 & Barbara Kauffman Metz b.1796 d. 1861. He has 14 other Bro & sisters. I have detailed data on all except Jacob. I am his 2nd cousin 3x removed. All the data I have came from a family Bible. Which leads me to believe that he might have been a "black sheep" and moved to Niagara Co. The last statement is only a guess. I also would like more data on this [my] Jacob Metz who may be the same person. the only fact we have is a common birth date.
