Biography of William Metzgar
Tompkins County, NY Biographies





Metzgar, William, one of fifteen children of Jonas and Mary Metzger, was born in Monroe county, Pennsylvania, January 29, 1821. In 1830 the family came to Groton where the pioneer and his wife died. William was brought up on a farm, made his start in life when he became of age, and fifty years of constant and honest labor have been rewarded with substantial results, and our subject is now the possessor of an excellent farm of 178 acres in the western part of the town, while he is a man highly respected in the town. In 1849 Mr. Metzger married Mary Ann, daughter of Samuel and Margaret Newman. They have had three children: Nelson C., who died aged twelve; Samuel E., of Dryden; Ella L., wife of D. W. Francis, of Groton. Mary Ann, wife of William Metzgar, died January 19, 1891. Mr. Metzger is one of the leading Democrats in Groton, but is not an office seeker. He has voted without missing an election since he became of age.
