~ Metzger Genealogy ~

Our Metzger line descends from Jacob Metzger, born 10 January 1746 in Steinenbronn, Wuerttemberg, Germany. In 1749, at age 2, he sailed to America on the Chesterfield with his parents Johann Jacob and Barbara (Dast) Metzger. Jacob was one of a few children who survived a smallpox outbreak during the voyage. About 1768, he married Mary in Pennsylvania and together they had 10 children: Jacob, Henry, Conrad, George, John, Sarah, Catherine, Mary, Leonard, Rose. He served in the Revolutionary War and lived a very full life to age 89.
