Thanks for getting back to me. I have since found the following, which may be helpful to some:

This is from a gravestone in Frankfort:

METCALF (The following names and dates are all on one 5' stone)

Betsey, d. November 19, 1832, age30yrs. l3dys.
Sophia d. August 8, 1844, act 38yrs. 8mos.
The wives of Samuel Metcalf.

John, d. August 8, l840, age l2yrs. 3mos. l7dys.
Infant, born and died, 1829
Children of Samuel and Betsey Metcalf

Helen, d. January 1, 1841, age 2yrs. 9mos.
Alice, d. June 8, 1844, age lyr. 5dys.
Ann, d. September 22, 1845, age lyr. 7dys.
Children of Samuel & Sophia Metcalf

This is the link:

I then did a little hunting for Betsey and came up with this:
“Betsey Tyler, married _____ Metcalf, a farmer of Frankfort, and her son (Captain William Metcalf) resided in Farmington, Maine”

It's in a book called The Tyler Genealogy: The Descendants of Job Tyler, of Andover, and if you Google "Betsey Tyler married Metcalf," it should be the first thing that pops up.

These would seem to be the right people, but I have nothing else to go by.
