My maternal great grandmother was married to a Frederick M. Metzner. He was born January 1854 in Germany and immigrated in 1879, according to the 1900 U.S. Census, Indian Territory, Cherokee Nation population schedule, Township 26 N Range 16 E, Nowata Township, enumeration district 12, page 312B. I'm sure we are not talking about the same Frederick Metzner, because my great grandmother's 1st husband died in 1911. However, these families may be related. I also discovered that Frederick M. Metzner's filed his nationalzation papers with the Circuit Court, Eastern District of Detroit, Michigan. According to the records on Ancestry.com his date of petition was 1877; his final oath was 1879; his country of origin was Germany; and and his original document file number was 1888. I have not tried to get a copy of his naturalization records yet, since I live nowhere near Michigan. I do know that in my great grandmother's Indian paperwork, Frederick Metzner states that his parents were Frederick and Solome Metzner. He also states on the census 1900 and 1910 census that his parents were born in Germany. I suspect that he is in the 1880 Census for Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan. However, I have been unable to locate him yet.
