Notice biographique

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:

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.
