Justina Elizabeth Rothan Metz

"Justina (Christina) Rothan was born 6 May 1844 in Ohio. I find her in the 1850 census as a six year old living with her parents. In the 1870 census she is still listed with her parents but she was married and already had children by that time. I believe they must have misunderstood the census taker and just listed all their children rather than just those still at home.
She married George M. Metz and lived out her life on the Metz farm in Green Township, Hamilton (County), Ohio. In 1880 she is 36 and her husband is 42. He lists his occupation as gardener. George died 4 Jul 1888. In 1900 I find her living by herself on Lick Run Pike. She is 55 and widowed. The last time I find her is in 1910. She is living at 751 Barr St. She says she has borne four children, all living. She owns the house and it is free of mortgage." by Mary Bihn

George died when less than 50 years old. Justina died when 72 years old. Both are buried in St. Aloysius Cemetary, (lot 25 sec2) Bridgetown, OH.
