Sorry Analiza E Wells should read Anna E. Wells.
METCALF - I'm looking for any and all baptism/death/marriage records in any and all
Delaware County churches for the family of George Metcalf. He may have been married three
times - Analiza E Wells, Sarah Wells, and Julia Faulkner. I'm specifically looking for
the three marriages and any baptisms of their children - Anna Eliza, Levi, Almond, etc.
Horace Metcalf's death certificate shows that he was the son of George Metcalf and
Anna E. Wells. He was born February 28, 1839 in Delaware County, NY, and I specifically
believe in Masonville. The death certificate for Levi Metcalf shows him as the son of
George Metcalf and Sarah Wells. There is an Almond G. Metcalf buried in Ouelout Valley
Cemetery with dates 1833 - 1855. The Bloomville Mirror states his death as March 6,
George is documented as having seat rents in Masonville Presbyterian in 1825 and 1826. He
is in Masonville in the 1830 census and in Davenport in the 1840 census.
I am hoping to be able to help me track down a Wells family with both Sarah and Anna E. as
the pattern has been with some in that time frame to marry a sister or other female close
relation when there where children to raise. I still firmly believe that the Analiza
buried in Davenport Cemetery is the Anna E. on Horace's death certificate.
Additionally, I am given to believe, as of today's new information, that Sarah was
George's first wife and Anna E. the second. I am at a loss as how to find any more
information and could use some local assistance from church records.
