Mike Miller: I am not a descendant of your Mathias Mettler, But my fourth great-grandfather and my third great grandfather were both named Mathias Mettler. I wonder if we have a connection. Do you know from where your Mathias came? My Mathias Mettler was born in Hundheim, Kreis ( county) Bernkastel, Rhineland. Due to the preponderance of Mathias Mettlers born in that time period, his parentage and exact date of birth have not been determined. About 1751, he married Elisabetha Catharine Muller. They had 3 sons named Johannes (John) and one son named Mathias. It was not unusual to name more than one child the same name. Mathias is a very common name in that area. this village is located near Trier, the Mosel River & Luxemburg. Florence Leis Mumford
