mr. moore my name is tammy morris-fuchs and i have been doing my family tree for 2 years. My mothers side of the family is also Metheny, so I have been lucky enough to find alot of info on this family tree. I am not at home right now and don't have all my info, but I can fill you in on some to start with. Originally the Metheneys came from france. There were two brothers one was named Daniel and that is the side we come from.From what I have been able to find all Metheny's (no matter what the spelling) are related. The virginia state library has two books tracing the Metheny family.From France they were in Maryland and then went to Virginia.You can check the families there first.You may be surprised on how many you actually find.Please let me know. Hope this helps.
