In Reply to: Re: Peter Mettler, Civil War Soldier by James N Mettler of 195

James: The first person of the Mettler/Mettler family that we have official records of is Mathias Mettler I, probably born in Hondheim/Hundheim, Kreis (county), Rhineland. Due to a preponderance of Mathias Mettlers born in the same time period, his parentage and exact date of birth has not been determined. About 1751, Mathias married Elisabetha Catharina Muller, dau. of Hubert Muller and wife Margaretha. (maiden name unknown). She was born in Rapperath, Kreis Bernkastel. Rhineland in 1718. They had six children, Three of whom were named Johannes (John)! It was not unusual to name more than one child with the same name, even if they were all alive. However, their second son was named after his father. Mathias II was born 1755 & m. Anna Maria Gorges . He died 1828.
