Well, it looks like we are related by marriage. I am married to Scott Metzel, Ken's oldest son. Ken is the only son of David Metzel, your cousin?
Carrie Metzel McCarthy (my sister-in-law) is coaching me as I write. She remembers visiting Myron and Melvin in Ohio when she was a child. She remembers Roy and Alan coming to visit her in Florida. Carrie doesn't know if she knew any of the other relatives. Carrie has a son, Jarrod, who will be 21 Thursday, March 21, 2002.
Scott has a daughter, Amanda Carol, who will be 17 on October 25, 2002. They are now living in Hendersonville, Tennessee with me and my two sons.
Lily (Mamie as we call her) Bee Metzel (my mother-in-law) is in Naples, Florida. She is always on the go and we expect her to visit us in Tennessee sometime in April of this year.
Mike Metzel (Ken and Lily's youngest son) lives in Pembroke Pines, Florida. He is married with three girls. Carrie Metzel is 18, Ashley Metzel is 17, and Jessica Metzel is 15.
We are interested in researching the Metzel family tree. As far back as we could remember was Abraham Lincoln Metzel, Scott, Carrie, and Mike's great-grandfather. Any other information you could send our way would be greatly appreciated.
You might search in family bibles, birth, death and marriage records within the state of Ohio, property deeds, and of course web sites like this.
As we get more information, we will link you to our tree on line to add dates and other information as you come across it.
Please feel free to email us at my address above. We would love to get and stay in touch.
