Re: Sarah Ann METZ - Stark Co., OH

In Reply to: Re: Sarah Ann METZ - Stark Co., OH by Elizabeth West of 972

I am a METZ from my father's family in West Virginia. I married a man ANDREWS whose Mother was born in St. Louis, Missouri. There is a METZ in the family history of 'John Dominic KERN (1781-1826) and Margaret Vaeth KERN (1780-1820)'.

The best I can decipher is this:
KERCHNER, Ferdinand (1835-1918) and LINNENKEMPER, Anna(1839-1914) had seven children. One daughter, Mary KERCHNER married a ZANG, John C.
In the obit. notice for Mary C. Zang, St. James Parish, Northeast Baltimore, are several adult children (several daughters). One of which is listed simply as Mrs. Joseph F. METZ.

I was always told the STRASSER and KERN families were from Missouri, but in looking this manuscript of letters , Irealize they were from German, Texas, Baltimore and South Carolina. I guess the family was large and traveled.

My first thought was this Joseph METZ may have been part of your Missouri METZ' but I guess not. Dad's family crossed the ohio River so many times before Grandma finally settled in Ohio. My Dad was born in w. Va. but I was born in Ohio, not far from Stark County.
Thank you,
