1. JACQUES CHRISTOPHE METTEY, (son of FREDERIC and CATHERINE (DEFRANCE) METTEY) was born 15 Feb 1803 in Frederic-Fontaine, Haute Saone, France. He usually signed French records J. C. Mettey, in a bold hand. After immigration, and prior to the 1835 NY state census, METTEY became anglicized to MATTY. Christopher Matty is the name in the family oral history, and in at least one property transfer (1866). He was called James C. Matty in the only federal census record mentioning him. James is the English equivalent of Jacques. According to Cook, his first residence was a small house on the north bank of Black River, a short distance upriver from Great Bend. He soon removed to the Town of Rutland. He died 17 Jul 1875 at the age of 72, and is buried in Elmwood Cemetery, Adams.
He married 4 Jul 1824 in Frederic-Fontaine, Haute Saone, France
