RE: sent new info
It was John Pfeiffer #50711261 or could have been Michael Pfeiffer #15546983. I know he was at New Oxford. I am so sorry, I never let this happen. I do believe it was John, because I don't think my bio was as long as Michaels's. Thank You again.

sent new info
You sent me information for a person, Veteran info, I believe, they are in New Oxford, I think. The e-mail somehow came up missing. I am extremely sorry, could you please re-send info? I would love to add it. I don't even remember his name. Again, I am very very sorry.

John Erhart Metzger
Hi Dennis,
I really think that John Erhart Metzger (Memorial # 115384502)didn't arrive in America at the Poet of New York on September 21, 1854 from Rotterdam, (The) Netherlands as you list in his biography on his memorial. None of the records of him in the censuses or his military service have him using his middle name of Erhart as his given name. They always used John Metzger for his name. I believe that the Erhardt Metzger on that ship's passenger list is the Erhardt Metzger, who is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Manitowoc, Manitowoc County, Wisconsin. When I put in his name for the ship's passenger list on his name came up for him in that cemetery, plus several census records, etc. I believe that John Erhart Metzger is the passenger Johannes Metzger, who sailed from Le Harve, France with his 17 year old sister Rosa Metzger on the ship Germanic arriving in the Port of New York on October 12, 1855. His place of origin is listed as Wurttenberg, which is listed where he was born.

Bertha M McCauley
I recently found her burial record. It has her mother as Florence B. McCauley, now listed as her sister. Her father is unknown. I was working on Henry J. McCauley (her grandfather) as he is my 3x great grandfather, and found info. on her instead.

If you want to see it, I can send the picture of the record to you.
