Metcalf, Mr. and Mrs. James (Golden - October 1957)  

Mr. and Mrs. James Metcalf, Greenwood, greeted about 150 guests at an open house Sunday in observance of their golden wedding anniversary. 

"We were married near Hayward and drove on to Spider Lake by horse and buggy," Mrs. Metcalf recalled. Their attendants were Inez Turnbull and Asa Metcalf. 

Jim and Clara (Vollrath) met while he worked as a guide, and she was a cook, at a resort near Hayward.  After their marriage they lived in the Hayward area for three years. 

They moved to a wooded area northwest of Greenwood that they hewed into a farm. Their son LeRoy now lives on this farm. Jim and Clara later bought a neighboring farm which they operated until they moved to Greenwood five years ago. 

Besides LeRoy, the Metcalf’s have a daughter, Mrs. Ben (Bertha) Dallman, of Greenwood, and two other sons, Everett of Madison and Dale of Random Lake. They also have a foster son, Lynn Blecha of Bryan, Tex.  A foster son and daughter, Lee and Elmira Blecha, are deceased. There are eight grandchildren.
