I'm eagerly looking for info on the descendents or ancestors of this family. I have a family bible reference that they are my cousins. Thank you, David Metcalfe
--------------------- Jacob E. LETT. Born abt 1816 in KY.
On 14 Dec 1846 when Jacob E. was 30, he married Catherine E. WADE, in Kenton Co, KY. Born abt 1820 in VA.
They had the following children: i. John L.. Born abt 1854 in KY. ii. William E.. Born abt 1848 in KY. iii. Catherine. Born in 1859 in KY. Catherine died in Kenton Co, KY in Feb 1861, she was 2.
The unknown parents of my Catherine WADE are from Virginia and Catherine was born there (b. abt 1820). The unknown parents of her husband Jacob E. LETT are also from Virginia, but Jacob was born in Kenton County Kentucky (B. abt 1814).Jacob and Catherine were married in Kenton County Kentucky Dec 14 1846.
Another similar connection I'm trying to make is for the ancestors of Orrick METCALFE of Mississippi (b. abt 1820).Somehow he is a cousin, but I have not figured out how.If you have information on him, I would be keen on knowing it.
The difficulty I'm having with all this is that my unknown METCALFE ancestor, father of Vincent METCALFE, is reported in the 1880 census as being born in Maryland... not Virginia.So, I'm not sure if he comes via the Virginia state METCALFEs or directly from the Maryland.He did live in Bourbon County Kentucky in 1810 near/with the Captain John METCALFE clan who were from Virginia.
