METZLER, who died at the same place a few years ago. Mrs. METZLER was eighty-two years of age, and was born at McConnellsburg, Penn.. She was married in 1840 and came to Fairfield a few years later. She resided here while her husband was in the army, a member of Company E, Second Iowa Infantry, and at one time its captain. The family removed to Des Moines early in the '60s.
