FPOC in CT circa 1810
Am looking for info about ancestor Janie (Jane) Metrash. Listed as a free person of color in the Connecticut census of 1840. Her decendent Adam Metrash of Norwalk CT (listed in the CT census of 1840) was my greatgrandfather. There is an Elvan Metrash listed in the 1810 census (a relative?). Have also found an Adrian listed as a (colored) laborer in the Brooklyn NY city diretory (another relative?). Since the name is uncommon they may also be related. Cannot find any living people with that name. Could use help with directions to take.
