I then did a little hunting for Betsey and came up with this:
“Betsey Tyler, married _____ Metcalf, a farmer of Frankfort, and her son (Captain William Metcalf) resided in Farmington, Maine”
It's in a book called The Tyler Genealogy: The Descendants of Job Tyler, of Andover, and if you Google "Betsey Tyler married Metcalf," it should be the first thing that pops up.
These would seem to be the right people, but I have nothing else to go by.
