Metcalfe Museum

James Metcalf and Augusta were married in December of 1905. She delivered her son, Howard, the following year. Unfortunately, not much is known of their marriage. There were a few mentions of James in the Hamburg Blade, and even fewer mentions in Ma’s journals. We are never given a reason why James left; just entries hinting at the discourse between him and Ma.Today, we know that he left for Kansas and we have a copy of a letter Augusta sent in response to an inquiry from a woman seeking Augusta’s opinion of him.
