|48||In the Tatterford Parish register for 1585 is the entry of baptism of "Leonard Metcalf, filius Leonardi Metcalf et bapt. fuit 3d die Septembris."||METCALF, Leonard (I226)
|49||"He enlisted in war and was never heard from again," according to "The Drake family in England and America, 1360-1895, and the descendants of Thomas Drake of Weymouth, Mass., 1635-1691" by Louis Stoughton Drake, page 60 (image #85 at Family Search). The only support so far for this may be the June 1863 draft registration (not enlistment) lists, one for Massachusetts showing a Charles Gleason, age 38, farmer, born in NH; and the other for Woodstock, Connecticut, with a Charles Gleason, age 39, laborer, born in Mass. Farther down the Woodstock list is another Charles Gleason ("1st"), 41, laborer, also born in Massachusetts. One of them enlisted 24 Dec 1863 (1st Heavy Artillery) and died on 4 Oct 1864, where it is noted that this person did not survive the war but doesn't say how or where he died. We need to verify which Charles Gleason this is.||GLEASON, Charles Dexter (I107)
