LETT and WADE Family of Kentucky

I'm eagerly looking for info on the descendents or ancestors of this family. I have a family bible reference that they are my cousins. Thank you, David Metcalfe

Jacob E. LETT. Born abt 1816 in KY.

On 14 Dec 1846 when Jacob E. was 30, he married Catherine E. WADE, in Kenton Co, KY. Born abt 1820 in VA.

They had the following children:
i. John L.. Born abt 1854 in KY.
ii. William E.. Born abt 1848 in KY.
iii. Catherine. Born in 1859 in KY. Catherine died in Kenton Co, KY in Feb 1861, she was 2.

The unknown parents of my Catherine WADE are from
Virginia and Catherine was born there (b. abt 1820).
The unknown parents of her husband Jacob E. LETT are
also from Virginia, but Jacob was born in Kenton
County Kentucky (B. abt 1814). Jacob and Catherine
were married in Kenton County Kentucky Dec 14 1846.

Another similar connection I'm trying to make is for
the ancestors of Orrick METCALFE of Mississippi (b.
abt 1820). Somehow he is a cousin, but I have not
figured out how. If you have information on him, I
would be keen on knowing it.

The difficulty I'm having with all this is that my
unknown METCALFE ancestor, father of Vincent METCALFE,
is reported in the 1880 census as being born in
Maryland... not Virginia. So, I'm not sure if he
comes via the Virginia state METCALFEs or directly
from the Maryland. He did live in Bourbon County
Kentucky in 1810 near/with the Captain John METCALFE
clan who were from Virginia.
