Historia biográfica

A family tree included in the fonds relates a portion of the genealogy of Robert Metcalf a Methodist preacher. He had two brothers Thomas and Edward Metcalf. He married Elizabeth Cradock and had ten children.
Thomas Metcalf died in infancy, Mary Metcalf married William Kirby, William Metcalf married a "Miss Thompson," John Metcalf married a "Miss Haskins," Robert Metcalf married a "Miss Faulkner," Elizabeth Metcalf married William Brownbridge, Ann Metcalf married Ephriam Keeler, Martha Metcalf married Richard Stockdale, Anthony Metcalf (1824-1908) married Catherine Haley (1826-1887) and Abraham Metcalf married, but the name of his bride is absent.

The family tree continues by following the line of Anthony and Catherine Metcalf. There are only seven children defined, however the line seems to extend further as over one hundred descendants are stated to exist as of January 1, 1939. These are the defined descendants:

Louisa Metcalf (1849-1934) married William Langford (1852-1935) and had two children, Catherine Ida Langford (1876-1891) and William Herbert Langford (1881-1884).

Elizabeth Metcalf (1852-1896)

Josephine Metcalf (1854-1925) married Leonard Paisley (1846-1920) and had seven children, Laura Mattie Eveline Paisley (1876), Bertha Maud Paisley (1881), Herbert John Leonard Paisley (1883-1936), Edna Catherine Paisley (1886), Harry Paisley (1891), Clifford Thomas Paisley (1893) and Elsie Mildred Paisley (1897).

Mary Metcalf (1862) married Frank E. Yahn and had four children, Willard F. Yahn, George M. Yahn, Lois Yahn and Milton M. Yahn.

Homer Anthony Metcalf (1865-1953) married Sarah Ellen Frymire (1863-1937) and they had six children, Harold Haley Metcalf (1890), Donald Leslie Metcalf, Paul Whitaker Metcalf, Ray Clifford Metcalf, Edith Mae Metcalf (Reddin) (1900) and Winfield Homer Metcalf (1903).

Another brother is mentioned, one Samuel Herbert Metcalf and Aggie Annie Metcalf, however they do not appear on the family tree.

This family is cited as partial pioneers of Macrorie Saskatchewan. Homer was also revered as a councilor, School Trustee, President of the Telephone Company, Member of the Board of Trade, Reeve of the municipality, and Church elder. He also was selected to represent the Independent Party at a Provincial Election. Mrs. Metcalf (Sarah) served the community and the Church where she was the President of the Ladies' Aid. Homer served for a time as County Auditor of Roberts County, South Dakota. Defending actions he took in 1904 in reference to the filing of nominations for certain offices to be put forth by the Republican Party of Roberts County, South Dakota.

Winfield Metcalf was the donor of the material and married Ellen Louis Peeters (1903) and they had two children, Harold Homer Metcalf and John Pierre Metcalf.
