From THE VALLEY OF THE UPPER MAUMEE and ANNALS OF THE TOWN-SHIPS, 1887 edition, reprint by Brant and Fuller, Madison, Wisconsin, page 327-28

 

MARTIN V. METCALF, a substantial farmer of Perry township, was born in Ashland county, Ohio, December 3, 1845.  His father, VACHEL METCALF, an early settler of Perry, was born September 20, 1816, in Ashland county, Ohio, where his father, EDWARD METCALF, was a pioneer.  In 1842 Vachel married AMANDA OTTO, and in 1849 they emigrated to Perry township, settling upon land yet in the forest.  When MARTIN V. was but four years old he accompanied his parents to Allen county, and located on the farm where his boyhood and youth were spent.  In winter he went to the district school, receiving a very good education for that day.  In early manhood he adopted the vocation of a farmer.  January 26, 1870, he was married to MARY E. DULY, a native of Ashland county, Ohio, born September 7, 1845, to JOHN and ELIZABETH (ELY) DULY.  From 1870 to 1877, Mr. and Mrs. Metcalf resided on the Metcalf homestead in Perry township.  In the latter year they removed to another farm in the same township.  Besides this valuable farm of 80 acres, Mr. Metcalf owns a one-half interest in the old homestead of 140 acres.  He and wife have had 2 children.  The first was a son that died in infancy, unnamed.  The other is WILLIAM EDMUND, who was born October 29, 1881.  Mr. Metcalf is one of his township’s most worthy and respected citizens.
