Looking for info on the above.. Been able to piece together much of his lineage. Hoping to figure when he died and get an obit....

Robert Baylor Metcalfe b. Bourbon, KY 1825. Parents were John Metcalfe 1791-1871(desencds from Theophalis Metcalfe)
and Francis Norton Baylor 1795-1874 (Walker Baylor and Jane Bledsoe). Wife was Vienna Phillips Berry 1844-1925 (parents-William H. Berry/Eliz Ewing Carter)

Hi Sheilah,

My ggg-grandfather (Vincent METCALFE) was born in Bourbon County around 1810, and lived there until around 1838. He married Nancy CUMMINS in 1832. The only details of Vincent's parents are from the 1880 census where he lists his father is from MD and mother from KY.

Do you have any details on the John METCALFE who fathered Robert Baylor METCALFE; e.g., other siblings of Robert, any occurance of the name Vincent, dates in Bourbon County?

Do the WADE or LETT surnames show-up in the subsequent years of this family?

Most of the info I found on the Metcalfe family was from the internet, so not sure how reliable it is..

Here is a link to a web page that appears to be going in the right dirrection...

They do list several siblings of Robert Baylor Metcalfe.

Also, a cousin of Robert was John Thomas Metcalfe(1838-1902), who was the son of Dr. James Metcalfe. John Thomas Metcalfe graduated from West Point,in 1838 and his obit is on line at the USMA web page (Archives link - Annual Reunion 1902, pg.126-133). It does go into the family genealogy and migh give you a lead .. The obit mentions an Uncle, Volney Metcalfe, so link on the Shackleford and Metcalfe families seem to be in order...

Dr. Volney Metcalfe, Dr. James Metcalfe, father of John Thomas, and Dr. John Metcalfe, father of Robert Baylor Metcalfe, were sons of John Metcalfe and Amelia Ann Shackleford. According to the obit, the Metcalfes descend from John Metcalfe of Yorkshire England, a graduate of Cambridge, who came ot this country and settled in VA abt 1710. His son also named John at athe age of 65 emigrated from Fanquier County,m VA abut 1784. He had 3 wives and 19 children. (you have to read the obit... its confusing...). Somewhere in there is the 10th Gov of KY, Thomas, who was was the son of his third wife...

John Thomas Metcalfe's mother was Sarah Williams Baker, dau of Joshua Baker. Her brother was Cap. Isaac Lewis Baker.

Good Luck...
