About Mary Metzger

Mary married Jacob Metzger abt 1768 New Jersey Children Jacob, Henry, Conrad,George, John Sarah, Catherine, Mary, Leonard, Rosanna

Half sister to Sabrina Buchs, wife of Martin Driesbach and Magdelena Buchs who married Jacob Dreisbach. Mary's son Conrad writes a letter to his cousin George Books(Buchs) in 1816. The letter is listed below.

There is a John Bingaman who leaves household goods to Jacob Metzger and his wife in 1803/7 Ross co, Ohio. This could be Mary's father giving her her inheritance when he dies. Or a grandfather who moved to Ohio with them. I have checked with the Jacob Medsker family of the area and the Bingaman does not belong to that family. "Deed Book T, Ross Co, Ohio This day I do hereby bequeath unto Jacob Metzger, seven head of horses and four milk cows and three head of young cattle and seven head of hogg and one set of little tubs and still and all the utensials and notes and bonds to the amount of 200 dollars and 8 acres of corn and one acre of flax potatoes and cabbage bed and beded and all my kitchen furniture and all the above mentioned property I have bequeathed unto said Metzger 36-47 dollars in hand paid in presence of us this 2nd day of July 1807 and all book accounts then. Given under my hand and seal. John Bingeman" (Is this Mary's father) Or she could be a daughter of Joahann George Buch and his second Unknown wife. Both families were in the Dreisbach church together in Berks Co, Pa and also in New Jersey together.

"I take this present opportunity to let you know that we are all well at present hoping that these few lines may find you all in good health and that you will not forget to write to me how you all are and how you are making out. I would have wrote to you before now but I have had no chance since I heard where you lived, but I understand that you are in a poor part of the world and I think it does not suit you for you never liked to work so well as to work for nothing. This is the character of your Slippery Rock in our country, but it may be that this country bears as bad a name with you as yours with us, but Cousin George, I will tell you the truth about this country as nigh as I can. There is some parts of it that is some sickly along large creeks where the fogg is apt to be very thick. Other places is again that is as healthy as any part in the United States for we have been in this country these 18 years and we have nither fever nor Agy, and for raisen grane there can be no better land. I have 26 acres of wheat now on shucks, one field 12 acres it has 655 dozen on the other is not counted as to give you an exanct account of it but is allowed it would turn off as much as the other. Mister Vandike helped to reap it and he says he never rept better. I expect to have between 6 and 7 bushels of wheat this season and I have 20 acres of corn. I have 200 and 25 acres of land 60 acres clear 200 apple trees, some other good fruit trees peaches, cherrys and plumbs. I live one mile and a half from the Ohio River 40 miles above Cincinnati where the greatest Steem mill is that is in America. It is nine stories high four pear of bins in her eight feet over where the highest proce is always paid for wheat. Wheat is now 76 cents per bushels corn 33 !/2 per bushel Salt one dollar whiskey 75 cents per gallon. I have six head of horses and 20 head of cattle and 13 head of sheep. you must excuse my bad writing for I am in Hurry but when you write to me I will take more time and tell you a little about some of thos Chaps that come to see this country when the See one have his head tied up they think all is Sick in this Country. I will give you all our names and you must send us your. Samuel, George, David William, Barbara, Mary Phebe, Delila these are the offsprings of Conrad Metzger and Margaret Metzger July 14 1816. Remember me when you see this tho many a mile a distant we be. Clear Mount County Lewis Township and State of Ohio and the bearer of this letter is Mr John Evens of your County.
