I have some new information that might help me find out some more on my great grandparents. From Alsace-Lorraine area of France.
John Metz son of Sebastion Metz and Catharine Walker Metz married Babara Bouvy daughter of Henri Bouvy and Bete Catharina. This information is from Catholic church records in Illinois. Children of John Metz and Barbara Bouvy Metz are
Mary Catherine, Annie, Katherine, John, Johanna, and Fredrick. This couple immigrated first to Pennsylvania then to Illinois. John SR was a glassblower.
Any help you could give me on finding out any additional information would be greatly appreciated.
