Hi Eric,
Have found out that Adam H. Metrash was an oysterman and boat builder, He owned 2 boats (don't know if at the same time) one was called the "Silence" the other was named "Whisper". Adam and his Wife Elizabeth (Peppinger)were both deaf. They had 3 daughters and 1 son. Elvin Metrash is listed in the 1810 census. In 1811-1814 A Metrash sold goods (oysters?) to Eliphalets Lockwood's store. A Grace Metrash married Lewis Butler in 1826. An Angeline Metrash (my g-grand fathers sister) married John Hawley Hubbard they had 7 children, several died as babies. If possible check the churchyard of St. Pauls on the green in Norwalk several of my ancestors are buried there you might get lucky You may also post messages to the Norwalk historical site there are some folk who will do lookups for you.The great thing about looking for ancestors is finding cousins that you didn't know about. I have found several people in New Haven that are related to me living in the same town that I never knew about. Don't know if there is a Pequot connection in 1880 census Adam is listed as a mulatto (?). Would be nice if there was!!!!
