Hello Mr. Metz,
I´m in contact with Mr. Jürgen Metz from Homberg/Efze.
You has visit him together with Gustav Eichbaum from Kassel
to find the village of birth of your Ancestor Wilhelm Metz here in Hessel-Kassel,
and I will help Mr. Metz and Mr. Eichbaum and you.
By Ancestry.com I have found:

Wilhelm Metz, age 20
arrived: 11.12.1865
with Ship named: Johanne Wilhelmine
from Port Bremerhaven to Baltimore
Destination: Washington
shoemaker
village where he lived: Neumarschen
I have searched in the WEB for the village Neumarschen, have not found, but a village
Neumorschen, Schwalm-Eder-Kreis (District), Hessen-Kassel

The birth year is correct
Baltimore? I think you has write immigration New York?

Now Mr. Eichbaum will looking in the church-books of
Neumorschen. We will give you in the next days an info.

Kind regards
Ingelore Frank
