W. H. Metzner has gone to Delphos, Ohio.
Love finding these snippets of local comings and goings in the newspapers of old. This is likely William Henry Metzner (1848-1921), son of William and Barbara (Powell) Metzner. In 1898, he was living at 247 Shanks Street in Portland. Originally, I thought this news item might mean he went visiting relatives in Delphos, which is a border town of Allen and Van Wert counties in Ohio. He might have been moving there. I need to search the 1900 census to see where he was living.
