It seem that the names Lamech or Lemach has been used quite a bit in the middle 1800.When researching, we also found Lamech married to Jennie Merrifield. Also found Leonard L Metz married to Virginia Merrifield. Seem the children from both are about the same. Jennie or Jenna is usually a shortened version of Virginia.
We are researching the Samuel Ellis Metz family from West Liberty Ohio County. We have a very good handle on the family back to "Who Is Lamech or Lemach". Could his actual name be Leonard Metz? Samuels parents are, Lamech and Martha Ann Metz. One of Samuel's sons,Walter Ellis Metz, married one of our Aunts, Elsie Olive Frazier. We have the information Find-A-Grave. I personally knew Grandpa Sam as a child.
