Dear SMC MD Listers, Today I came across an interesting article about the
son of John METCALFE of Virginia, while looking for something else. The
MEDCALF/METCALF researchers might appreciate having it, if they don't already.
With that in mind I have typed it out below for sharing. Enjoy!

Sincerely,

Elizabeth McIvor


Copied from the Virginia Genealogical Society Quarterly, Volume 2, Number 3:



John METCALFE 1

John METCALFE was born August 20, 1791 in Bourbon county Kentucky. His
father was John METCALFE, born in Virginia, and his mother was Amelia
Schackelford, also born in Virigina. They migrated to Kentucky directly after the
Revolution.


JOhn METCALFE lived in Kentucky and Missouri before moving to Texas, in
1849. With his brothers he owned "Mill Springs", a valuable manufacturing center
near Monticello, Kentucky, consisting of ten different plants. HIs memory
deserves to live as he gave the best years of his life in defense of his
country, serving in the Great Lakes Campaigns and later with Jackson at New
Orleans. One incident relevant to his service stands out. Jackson drew up his men
and called for volunteers to lead a "Forlone Hope". After a moment of intense
silence, John METCALFE stepped forward, asking only that Captain Matthews of
Natchez, Mississippi accompany him. His mission was to locate Pakenham at the
mouth of the Mississippi River. For many miles their journey lay through
the swamps; slush up to their necks in places; they were lost and the only food
for several days was crow meat. They were fortunate enough to get through
and make their report and Jackson never forgot the service.

John METCALFE married Francis Norton BAYLOR, daughter of Captain Walker
BAYLOR. He died at Brenham, Texas in 1870.

Subject: [MDSTMARY] JOHN MEDCALF & WILLIAM METCALF born bef 1764 - BEECH
FORK, KY


Rick --Thanks for sending the full citation on William Metcalf [below].

Here's a citation for JOHN MEDCALF, whom I believe also had land near BEECH
FORK as well. Let me try to prove it.

STEP ONE: Look at the citations below telling us that John Medcalf's land
joined Gabriel May... where 1) it says he lives near Medcalf, and 2) the
second
citation tell us exactly where that land is located.... on Freman's creek a

branch of BEECH FORK.

STEP TWO: Look at Humphrey May's land which joins Gabriel May's and it
states again that it's on BEECH FORK. In other words, we have a WILLIAM
METCALF
and a JOHN MEDCALF on/near BEECH FORK around 1785. Both of these men would
have been born before 1764 to be eligible to buy land. Here are the
citations
referenced above:

Henry, William. Publication 14 June 1786. Location: Fayette county (Ky.).

Description: 1080 acres on a small creek waters of Main Licking adjoining
JOHN MEDCALF . Source: Land Office Grants Z, 1785-1786, p. 492 (Reel
66).


May, Gabriel. Publication 20 January 1792. Location: Bourbon County
(Ky.). Description: 733 acres on the waters of the north fork of Licking
and adjoining MEDCALF'S survey. Source: Land Office Grants No. 25,
1791-1792, p. 459 (Reel 91).


May, Gabriel. Publication 22 May 1790. Location: Nelson County
(Ky.).
Description: 400 acres on Fremans Creek a branch of the BEECH FORK
adjoining Wilsons Preemption. Source: Land Office Grants No. 22,
1789-1791, p.
202 (Reel 88).


May, Humphrey. Publication 21 May 1790. Note Location: Nelson County.

Description: 350 acres on Fremans Creek a branch of the BEECH FORK
adjoining
Gabriel Mays survey. Source: Land Office Grants No. 22, 1789-1791, p. 201
(Reel 88).



If we have a WILLIAM METCALF and a JOHN MEDCALF, both born before 1765 near

BEECH FORK KY about 1785, what does that tell us? Did they travel with
William Coomes from Hampshire County, where Francis Coomes and Thomas
Wharton
lived?

Ancestors defined by Manuscript by John Francis Metcalf, b 1825

Great-grandfather -- [Unstated] Medcalf moved to Fort Boon [from MD to VA
to KY]
Grandfather -- -- -- Ignatius Medcalf, Sr. & Nancy Ann [Unknown], just

married*
Father -- -- -- -- Ignatius Medcalf Jr. born Ft. Boon & Agnes
[Agatha] Catherine Hough*
Author -- -- -- -- John Francis Metcalf, b 1825

*Agnes/Agatha Catherine Hough, daughter of Nancy Ann Coomes, d/o William
Coomes. Nancy Ann Coomes was 18 years old when the fort was sieged [1788];
see
Buchanan's deposition below.



Here's what the manuscript of Joseph Francis Metcalf, b 1825, tells us: "It

is a settled fact that, the Metcalf that migrated from Virginia to
Kentucky,
with Daniel Boon in 1782 was my great great grandfather, and helped to
build
Fort Boon and the town of Harrodsburg, that one of his sons, Ignatius
Metcalf, whick [sic] would be my great grandfather, moved to Bardstown
Kentucky, he
was
one of five or seven children in his family.

"Ignatius Metcalf [sic] parents emigiated [sic] from Maryland with Daniel
Boon to Kentucky, when just married, and helped to build Fort Boon, where
the
present town of Harrodsburg, Mercer County, Kentucky, now stands."

The author is talking about Ignatius Metcalf, Sr. coming to Kentucky with
his parents... and that he was just married [to Mary Ann [Unknown]]. So
Ignatius Sr. and Mary Ann were married either in Hampshire Co., VA or in
Maryland.
The author goes on to say that Ignatius Metcalf was probably born at Fort
Boon [meaning Ignatius Jr.]

Compare the Medcalf's migrated from Maryland to Virginia to Kentucky with
that of the Coomes: Francis Coomes & Thomas Wharton moved from Maryland to
Hampshire County VA and then William Coomes moved to Kentucky, is that not
the
same route at the same time?

*PETITIONS OF THE EARLY INHABITANTS OF KENTUCKY
Petition #7: <snip> Captain William Buchanan gave deposition
[Williamsburg,
28 Nov 1788] that Fort _Boon_
(http://www.tiscali.ancestry.co.uk/facts/boon-family-history.ashx) had
been attacked by a party of Indian, about 340 and
there were only 60 men in the fort including the garrison soldiers,
settler.
Claim was rejected.
