reprinted September 19, 1981 by the Grant County KY Historical Society.

V. S. METCALFE was born in Covington, Kentucky, April 30, 1871, and with
his parents moved to Grant County the year following, locating on a farm
three miles east of Dry Ridge, where he has since resided. Mr. Metcalfe
was united in marriage to Miss Minnie M. Abernathy, daughter of A. C.
Abernathy, of the Mt. Zion neighborhood, Jan. 15, 1891. To this union
four children have been born--three boys and one girl--Roy Lee, Guy Blaine,
Mary Ethel and Paul Abernathy, all of whom are living and lend additional
charm to a home filled with sunshine and joy. Mr. Metcalfe is a consistent
member of the Dry Ridge Baptist Church, an active member of the order of
the Red Men at Dry Ridge. In politics he is and has been an ardent
Republican and devoted much time to the welfare of his party in national,
state and county affairs. He is numbered among the sturdy yeomen of this
section, and as a stock raiser his success has been gratifying indeed.
For five years he has ranked high as an auctioneer, and his business in
this line has increased so rapidly that it almost requires his undivided
attention, which speaks well for his ability to "Cry" sales of personal
property and real estate. His services as an auctioneer are in demand all
the time and it would not surprise us to one day see his name in the list
of the big fellows whose sales run into the thousands.
