Catharine (YOUNG) METZNER (1819-1910) was my paternal 3x great-grandmother, the daughter of Nicholas and Salome (YOUNG) YOUNG.  She married John METZNER November 4, 1839 in Newark, Licking County, Ohio.  The names of her 11 children were: John Adam, Henry, William F., George W., Louis Napoleon, Caroline H., Catherine E., Wesley T., Samantha E., Martha J., and Mary A.   Catharine is buried in the Mt. Zion Cemetery, Noble Township, Jay County, Indiana.

The daughter living in Rome City, Indiana, must have been the youngest, Mary A. (METZNER) HUEY, as Catharine was enumerated in their household in the 1910 census of Orange Township, Noble County, Indiana.
