Tompkins County, NY Biographies





Metzger, Andrew, was born in Genoa, May 17, 1826, one of fifteen children of Jonas and Mary (Merwin) Metzger. His father was a blacksmith and farmer, and Andrew was brought up to farm work. At the age of twenty one he began life for himself, with no capital save his own determination to succeed. He is now the owner of a good farm in Groton, the buildings of which are substantial and attractive. In January, 1853, Mr. Metzgar married Harriet N., daughter of Amza and Susan (Spooner) Armstrong, of which marriage there were two children: Norman, who died in 1882, and Edgar G., who now lives at home with his parents. Amza Armstrong was a native of Goshen, Orange county, and came with his father, Moses, to Genoa at a very early day. They located in Groton on the farm now owned by Andrew Metzger. Amza married Susan Spooner, and had nine children: Albert, Delilah, Harriet N., Czarina Louisa (wife of Lyman Perigee); Sarah Jane, Emily, Lucina A., Mary E., and one who died in infancy. Amza Armstrong was born July 1, 1795, and died February 26, 1875. His wife, Susan Spooner, was born June 24, 1798, and died February 27, 1887. They were married May 1, 1825.
