Is this the same Jacob METZ that may have been the Father to:
*Leonard METZ b.@ 1758 Lancaster Co., Penn. m. Margaret SMALLEY
Had 7-9 children.

son:**William F. METZ b. Oct. 1793 m. Nancy RANDALL
Had eleven to thirteen children

son:**Tapley G. METZ b.@ 1827 not married to Rosa Lee JACKSON ----m.1850 Hannah BECK DAVIS

William E. METZ b. @1867 m. Nov. 4, 1886 Minnie PRICE
Had eleven children.
No. 10. Cleo Edward METZ b. Jan. 13, 1908 was my Grandpa.

There is some confusion amongst the METZ families as to the parentage of William E. METZ b. 1867. I questioned it for years based on the 1880 census. Two listed, one 19 yrs.,son of Mathias and Hannah. The other one 13 yrs., son of 53 yr. Tapley and 58 yr. old Hanna. I now have proof, with help from others and double checked myself, that Rosa Lee JACKSON was the mother of William E. METZ, Jr.and Tapley G. METZ is his father. Some suggest Tapley was married to Rosa, but if one does the math- Tapley married Hannah (a widow) in 1850.

Not sure why he is listed as 'junior' unless named for Grandfather-William

I have more info. Any of this sound familiar? I need confirmation on Jacob to Leonard to William F. (b. Oct.18,1793).
