From looking at the family trees on Ancestry there are a lot of other researchers stuck on who Jerry's parents were.
Here are a few records I found.

The 1880 census I found says that Jerry was born in Tennessee and the marriage record gives his birth year as 1833. Here's a Jeremiah Metcalf that you should check out.

In 1860 John and Frances Metcalf were in Saline Co, AR, which is located just northwest of Jefferson Co where Jerry and Sarah were married. John and Frances Metcalf's daughter, Mary, is living next door with her husband, James W. McFarlin. I can't find Jeremiah in 1860. There's a marriage from 1861 in Saline Co for a Houston B Metcalf that is probably Hugh.
