Eva Bohn was christened on March 15, 1734 in Bischofsdhron, Rhineland-Palatinate, Prussia (Morbach, Germany). Her father's name was Henricus Bohn and her mother's Angela Elisabetha, This was a Catholic family.[1]

When she was 14 years old, she became pregnant with a 12 year old boy named Joannes Mettler who lived in the same village. Their record of marriage is on the same day as the birth of their son Peter Metler, March 21, 1748. This makes you wonder if they married before she went into labor, or they waited to see if the baby survived and then married? or perhaps for convenience the priest wrote down the same day so that the baby would be legitimate?

The two stayed married (probably they had no choice but to) and had at least two additional sons. All three children are listed below with their birthdays:

  • Peter Mettler, March 21, 1748
  • Thomas Mettler, January 15, 1751
  • Michael Mettler, August 15, 1754
