My name is Andrew Ballen.Ready for some confusion?:) My family is from Jamaica and Belize.I currently reside in China.I too am a direct descendant of the Metzgens (Monrad etc).My great-grandmother's maiden name is Emma Jane Metzgen, she was either a sister or cousin of Monrad (still unclear).She definitely had one brother named Herman Metzgen.She married a gentleman named John Coleman, a couple that gave birth to my grandmother.My grandmother met and married a gentleman from Jamaica, while studying at teacher's college in Belmopan, Sam Wilson, they gave birth to 3 children, the 2nd of which, my mother, Sandra Wilson, was born in Belmopan in 1951.
I am also trying to learn more about the Metzgens of Belize and would appreciate any further information you can forward along.
My name is Andrew Ballen, son of Sandra Wilson (Coleman/Metzgen) and Dr. Patrick Ballen of Jamaica.My family currently resides in North Carolina, where my father practices medicine.
