BARNABAS METCALF AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



1. Barnabas Metcalf (Michael*, Eleazer 2 , Michael 1 , 
Michael ) was the fourth in descent from Michael the original 
emigrant to this country. Michael and his family settled in 
Dedham. Michael l was his son, and the next in descent was 
Eleazer 2 , who was grandfather of Barnabas 4 . Eleazer had 
removed from Dedham to Wrentham centre, and his son 
Michael 3 , father of Barnabas, settled later in the eastern part 
of Wrentham on land that is now in Franklin. Michael built 
the house on Summer Street that is now owned by George Hay- 
wood, and here, it is probable, his children were born. His 
brother Timothy 3 settled near him, and the house he occupied 
is now standing at the corner of Union and King Streets. It is 
said that Barnabas lived with his uncle Timothy till he was 
married, and then bought the farm and built the house that has 
until recently been the home of one branch of the Metcalf family. 
The " Old Red House " and the barn are probably as old as 
1757 and perhaps older. Many old papers and deeds are still 
in the possession of Richardson Metcalf, of Franklin, and among 
them the earliest is dated Jan. 20, 1742, and records the pur- 
chase by Barnabas of eight acres of land from Eliphalet Whiting 
for £ 17. 10s, This was three years before he was married. The 
next dam\ is dated Jan. 10, 1749, and records that Ralatiah 
Metcalf bought one acre on Mine Brook, bounded kk west on the 
Brook, north on Barnabas Metcalf s land and my father Michael 
Metcalf's land. 1 ' A few months later, July 20, Michael gave to 
his son Barnabas two acres on Mine Brook worth X4, without 
condition. Thus he kept adding to his property, a few acres at 
a time, till the farm became one of great size. 

Barnabas was a singer of some note in his time, and after 
Joseph Whiting was dismissed from acting as chorister in the 
Franklin Church, took his place. Mr. Whiting was re.noved for 
having pitched a hymn a tone too high and persisting in singing 



it through when the rest of the choir sang on the correct pitch. 
Barnabas* was born in Wrentham, July 20, 1720, and his birth- 
place is now in the town of Franklin. This was seventeen years 
before this part of Wrentham was set off as a separate precinct, 
and it was not until 1778 that Franklin was incorporated. He 
in. March 5, 1745, Rebecca Healy. Of her the writer has been 
able to find only what is on her tombstone. 

In memory of Mrs. Rebeckah, wife of Mr. Barnabas Metcalf, who 
died (suddenly) January ye 27th 1798, aged 77 yrs & 2 days. 
Let all take warning whilst tha've breath 
Then to prepare for sudden death. 

Barnabas d. Nov. 2, 1799, in Franklin, and his remains, to- 
gether with those of his wife and some of his family reqiescat in 
pace in the old graveyard in that town. Children : — 

2. Levi 6 , b. Feb. 1G, 174G; m. Lois Bigelow. 
Moses 6 , b. Feb. 8, 1748; d. Oct. 1776. 
Olive 6 , b. May 19, 1752 ; d. Sept. 17, 175G.

5. Nathan 6 , b. Feb. 2G, 17G5; m. Patty Metcalf. 

2. Levi the son of Barnabas (1) and Rebecca (Healy) Met- 
calf, was b. Feb. 10, 1746. He went from Franklin in 1783 to 
Framingham and "bo't April 30, 1783 of Nathaniel Bigelow for 
£f>00 seventy live acres with house and barn to have and to 
hold for 907 years on payment of rent of one barley corn per 
annum if demanded." Nathaniel Bigelow was the father of 
Levi's wife, Lois; she b. June 26, 1746. Levi d. April 22, 
1832. He was very fond of fishing, and during his later years 
spent much time on the banks of the pond near by, engaged in 
his favorite pursuit. 

During the last part of his life he lived with his son, Obed 
Daniels, next house to the homestead. He had deeded this 
property to Obed with the understanding that he and his wife 
were to be supported as long as they lived. Soon becoming 
dissatisfied with the board and treatment, he pretended that he 



15K»0315 



had forgotten one parcel of land, and securing the deed from 
Obed, who wanted all he could get, Levi threw it into the fire 
with the remark that now he had his property back again and 
would support himself as he chose. lie had three daughters, 
all of whom married, so the name in this line disappears. 

Olive 8 , b. 1770; m. Oct., 1790, Aaron Pratt; d. May 21, 
1860. Her husband was killed by the cars, Nov. 30, 
1839.

was b. May 16, 1724 ; m. 1st, Nov. 6, 1782, Ruth Clark, dau. 
John and Ruth (Baxter) Clark. She b. June 14, 1760; d. July 
7, 1787. Asa m. 2dly, March 12, 1788, at Franklin, Melia 
Ware, and lived there just across the valley from his father 
toward Unionville, and spent his life in farming. He was said 
to be the strongest in his arms of the men in that town, lifting 
easily a fifty-six pound weight on each little finger and clinking 
them together over his head. He d. Aug. 29, 1830, and his 
property passed into the hands of his dau. Elvira, and here 
Luther Gowen and Elvira lived and reared their family. None 
of the descendants of Asa now bear the name of Metcalf.

5. Nathan 5 , son of Barnabas (1) and Rebecca- (Healy) Met- 
calf, was b. Feb. 20, 17G5 ; m. 1st, Sept. 18, 1788, Patty Met- 
calf. She was dan. of Michael, the brother of Barnabas, and 
was b. Sept. 10, 17G4 ; d. .June 27, 1809. Nathan ra. 2dly, 
June 28, 1810, Abigail Richardson, who was b. Jan. 19, 1777; 
d. March 18, 1854. He was the youngest of his father's family 
and retained the old home. On Dec. 5, 1787, he paid his father 
.£175 for halt* of the farm and lived in the same house with him, 
for we find that on March G, 1798, he leased the farm for one year 
for $8.00 and the care of his father ; and at the end of the year 
Barnabas gave his son a receipt for the money and for a satis- 
factory support. The lease was renewed for another year, but 
before it had closed Barnabas died, Nov. 2, 1799. On the 30th 
of the same month, Nathan's elder brothers, Levi, Asa and 
Philip, had given him for £G0 all the real estate left them by 
their father. Thus he came into possession of the entire home- 
stead. March 19, 1825, he deeded half of the place to his son 
Michael, but within a year it was deeded back to Nathan for 
$ 1000. Nathan was for a short time a member of the Massachu- 
setts Militia, as is shown by a paper dated Aug. 2G, 1805, at 
Franklin and signed by Robert Oilman, Captain. This paper 
certifies that Nathan Metcalf is disen rolled from the militia on 
account of a difficulty of seeing and hearing. He entered the 
militia at the time of Shays's Rebellion and was gone from home 
six weeks, the longest that he was ever away from the " Red 
House " at one time. It is s;iid that he had veiy strong teeth, 
and when the militia met for its annual muster he was called 
on to pull out the bungs of the cider barrels with his teeth, and 



never did he find one that could resist him. After he was sixty 
years old he had a tooth come at the end of the jaw, but it was 
of no use and lasted only a year or two. Me d. June 13, 1843.

Mary (Lawrence) Hartshorn. She was b. April 14,1791; d. 
July 23, 18GG. Of John Newton, the following, taken from the 
History of Franklin, is of interest : — He was a ship carpenter, 
and also served in the British Army. At the time of the Revo- 
lutionary War he was impressed on a man-of-war and brought 
to America. Upon his escape to land, he set out for Dedham, 
and being met and asked who he was, he replied, " John, 



8 

going;" and so he was — -toward Franklin. Having signed 
deeds with the name, changed to Gowen, it clung to him and 
his descendants. At a later time lie sought work in Charles- 
town. A man there threw down his silk glove on a stone, and 
giving John Gowen a stick and axe, asked him if he could make 
a ship pin without cutting the glove, lie made a good pin and 
handed it tu the man, who remarked that it was customary to 
stick the axe in the block when done with it. Without a word 
Gowen seized the axe and struck it heavily on the stone and 
replied, " Good day, Sir." Children of Luther and Elvira
