I saw your query on the Flath message board. I remember your Greatgrandmother Lydia Flath Mathias. They lived in my hometown of Garrison, North Dakota. In fact we are related. The Metz and Flath families are cousins. Lydia was the daughter of Jacob Flath and Margaretha Strom. This family along with a number of others immigrated to the US in 1903 from the village of Kloestits, Bessarabia in southern Russia. I know all of the Flath family well. Jacob had to brothers named Johann and David who also came to ND. Jacob's parents were
Johann Flath and Friedricka Schaefer. They did not come to America and died in the 1930's in Russia. I am reseaching all these families. I have photos of most of them and would be happy to share these with you. I went to Russia in 1996 and went to Kloestitz. I was also back to ND this summer. Please let me hear from you ! A distant cousin, Ron Metz
