A Brief History by Matthew Morgan McCall, M.D., Alikchi Chukma of the Choctaws

Early recorded data of the McCall family locates it in the vicinity of Loch Fyne in Argyll County, Scotland. It was an offshoot of the Clan Choola and was associated with the powerful McDonald Clan, according to "The Clan McCall" by Kate Sturm McCall Rotan of Waco, Texas. According to "McCall Genealogy" by A. M. McCall, "Members of the McCall family were engaged in commercial pursuits in Glasgow, but being Presbyte­rians, became involved in the religious troubles and escaped to County Antrim, Ulster, Ireland."

By 1638 thousands of border Scots, many of them younger sons of prominent families, had accepted the offer of James I of Scotland and occupied great bodies of land in Ul­ster which had been forfeited by the crown in consequence of the ill-fated rebellion of Tyrone which began in 1594 and collapsed in 1603. Many McCall households appeared among the transplanted Scots. The Scotch of Ireland, or the Scotch-Irish, were indus­trious and prospered in their new home. The British Parliament, seeing this unexpect­ed success commenced to burden them with high taxes and to persecute them for their religion. In a century of abuse their patience was exhausted, and they yearned to es­cape the oppressive burden.

Family after family the Scotch-Irish began to sail for the American colonies. Scarcely a ship sailed for America from about 1730 that did not carry emigrants from the nine counties of Ulster. Members of the McCall family sailed with other persecuted cove­nanters to New Jersey where a Scotch colony had been obtained from the Duke of York. On landing in America they found that their assigned land was claimed by the Dutch and the colony was broken up. Legendarily three McCall brothers were among the emigrants. Legendarily one brother, James McCall elected to go to Massachusetts; one chose Penn­sylvania and one removed to Virginia.

During the next 50 years thousands of the Scotch-Irish landed at Philadelphia and then spread southward into Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, according to "History of the Scotch-Irish in America" by A. J. McKelway. He wrote:

"From 1739 to 1746 many members of the McCall family moved from Pennsylvania to New River settlement, Virginia. The idea of offering the dissenters from the Church of England inducements to settle the lands west of the Allegheny Moun­tains had often been suggested to prominent men in the Colony of Virginia, but no move in that direction had been taken until about the time of the first set­tlement of the lower valley, at and after which time the governor and council of Virginia permitted the erection of dissenting churches in the valley and en­couraged the emigration of settlers wherever possible. The result of this ac­tion was a flood of settlers from Ireland and Scotland who came by way of Penn­sylvania, mostly Scotch-Irish Presbyterians in belief. They passed into and settled the Valley, and in a few years the Valley from Harpers Ferry to New River was populated with a progressive and liberty-loving people. Numerous tracts of New River were occupied. Lands held by many of these settlers were known as 'cornrights,' that is under the law each settler acquired title to a hundred acres for every acre planted by him in corn."

About 1746 Francis McCall, William McCall, James McCall and Thomas McCall, all re­lated, were heads of households in the New River settlement, now Botetourt County in southwestern Virginia. In 1749 the Indians, supported and compensated by the French army, made their first attack on the New River settlers. Virginia reacted by sending Lt. Col. George Washington and his militiamen supported by the South Carolina militia to counterattack. Constantly hounded by the guerilla tactics of the Indians and beset by the superior French regulars the militia had to entrench in hastily con­structed Ft. Necessity on the Allegheny River, near the present site of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Besieged and cut off from the arrival of any sup­port from the seaboard colonies Wash­ington was forced to surrender his fort and his militiamen in 1754.

The colonists appealed for help from England and prepared for the long struggle with the French and Indians which would continue until their victory nine years later. King George II responded by sending 800 British regulars under Gen. Edward Braddock to face the French regulars and Indians who were consolidating the gains all along the Virginia-Pennsylvania frontier controlled by a strong garrison at Ft. Duquesne.

On July 8, 1755 a large party of Shawnee braves fell upon the colonists remaining in the New River area and slaughtered them. The torch, the rifle and the tomahawk wiped the colony out of existence with only a few members escaping, according to "South-West Virginia" by Lewis Preston Summers. On the following day the French and Indians am­bushed Braddock and scattered his army, along with 600 Virginians under Lt. Col. George Walshington, that had been sent to clear the enemy from the confluence of the Ohio, Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers.

The McCalls and many of the Scotch-Irish fled southward into Mecklenburg [then Anson] County, North Carolina on the South Carolina border. There they resettled on Rocky River, Sugar Creek, in the Wachaw and on the Broad River in South Carolina. The only road in the area was an Indian trail through Mecklenburg from the Yadkin River to the Catawba Indian nation. The county had been named in honor of Princess Charlotte who had come about this time from Old Mecklenburg in Germany to England to be queen by marriage to George III.

Prime Minister William Pitt convinced Parliament of the importance winning the war in America, and they gave him a blank check to raise and equip new regiments to rush to the aid of the colonies. These regiments were raised primarily among the Highland Scots. The reorganized troops under Generals Henry Bouquet and Forbes were successful in 1758, and the tide of the war began to turn in the favor of the British.

Francis McCall, James McCall and Thomas McCall in 1758 served in the North Carolina militia, perhaps participating in the battle for Ft. Duquesne. Ironically the same men, less than 20 years later, would fight against their former comrades in the Revo­lutionary War. King George III appeared to fade from a benefactor into an oppressor.

Francis McCall and James McCall, two of the New River settlers, also served as Revolu­tionary soldiers from Mecklenburg County. After the Revolutionary War ended the younger McCalls extended the family across South Carolina and into Georgia. A genera­tion later the McCall men spread into Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi, frequently marrying Indian women from among the five civilized tribes.

This family is originally from Scotland, with some branches immigrating to Ireland. The date of most of those immigrations are unknown to me at this time. According to one researcher, the name was spelled MacCall and was changed at some point here in America to what it is today commonly spelled McCall. My connection is via my possible paternal biological grandmother Maudie Jane McCall. She married first husband David Madison Keith. As I learn more I will post at my Worldconnect "Irisheyes" website.

Please remember that this is just a partial list of descendants and relatives. This is still just a guide and is almost entirely the good folks that are directly related to Your's Truly. As of 27 December 2004 I have had to greatly shorten the info available on this page as it has gotten too much for me to be updating and correcting very often. I will continue to update as much as possible at my "irisheyes" website at Worldconnect. (o: Thank you for understanding! :o)

I also maintain a McCall Marriages In Georgia website to help other researchers. This too will be updated as frequently as I find other McCall marriages here in Georgia.

Some Descendants of
Francis "John" McCall and Mary Harris


Generation No. 1

1. Francis "John" McCall, R. S. was born November 11, 1710 in Antrim County, IRELAND, and died April 10, 1794 in Mecklenburg County, NC. He married Mary Harris 1731 in Cumberland Valley, PA, daughter of James Harris or Herries and Jane McKinley . She was born 1712 in Middle Springs, Cumberland County, PA, and died in PA, VA or NC.

Notes for Francis "John" McCall:
FRANCIS McCALL and MARY HARRIS are my biological paternal 5th great-grandparents.
Francis McCall was a Revolutionary War Soldier (R.S.).
Francis' parents were Joshua MCCALL born Abt. 1686 in Ulster, County Antrim, Ireland and Julianna Truby born Abt. 1691 in Ulster, County Antrim, Ireland.

The McCall's were Scots who migrated to Ireland where they settled for two generations. The McCall, Harris and Calhoun families migrated together to Pennsylvania and then to New River, VA.

Journal of the Lancaster County History Society, all name index - no McCall.

Bell McKinney Hayes Swope: Middle Spring Presbyterian Church, Middle Spring, PA, 1738 - 1900; History of, (Times Steam Printing House, Newville, PA, 1900). No mention of McCall. But the records are very spotty, and none from before 1750. The church was established 1738 - 1740 (dispute) but there may have been an informal group prior to that.

Francis McCall was listed as head of household in the New River Settlement (now Botetouret Co.) in southwestern Virginia. In 1749 the Indians, supported and compensated by the French Army, made their first attach on the New River settlers. Virginia sent Lt. Col. George Washington and his militiamen, who were supported by the South Carolina militia, to counterattack. Washington and his militiamen, faired poorly against the French and Indians and they retreated to the Great Meadows and hastily fortified limited improvements there. Washington named it Fort Necessity and it is located on present day Route 40, just east of the Summit Inn and just west of Farmington, Fayette Co, PA. The fort was built in the middle of a meadow near two densely wooded hills. On 3 July 1754 the French and Indians attacked the fort. The battle ended in Washington's first defeat when he surrendered to the French. Fort Necessity National Battlefield, with a recreation of the original fort, commemorates that early battle and preserves the site.

Again unprotected, the colonists were repeatedly attached by the Indians. On 8 July 1755 a large party of Shawnee braves slaughtered many of the Calhoun family. Some survivors, including Francis McCall, fled southward into Mecklenburg Co, NC. Some migrated to South Carolina where they formed the Calhoun settlement.

On 14 March 1774, Francis McCall, planter, and his wife Mary sold to William Houston, planter, for 50 pounds proc, 200 acres lying on both sides of Cedar Fork of Twelvemile Creek, Mecklenburg Co, NC, about half a mile above McCall's plantation. Said land was patented to McCall 5 April 1767. Witnesses: John Osburn, John McCall and Thomas McCall. Proved in January 1778 Court by John Osburn. Sam Martin, CMC.

On 3 March 1779, Governor Caswell sold to Francis McCall for 50 Shillings, 50 acres on Twelvemile Creek, Mecklenburg Co, NC adjoining other lands of McCall. This was NC Land Grant 10 and was issued at Kinston, Vol. 38, p. 10. Recorded in Secretary's office by William Shepard, Deputy Secretary.

On 3 March 1779, Governor Rd. Caswell sold to Francis McCall for 50 Shillings, the 100 acres and 200 acres on Twelvemile Creek, Mecklenburg Co, NC adjoining lands of James Briton and other lands of McCall. This was NC Land Grant 24 and was issued at Kinston, Vol. 38, p. 24. Recorded in Secretary's office by William Shepard, Deputy Secretary.

A Francis McCall was listed in the 1790 US Census for Mecklenburg Co, NC as head of household with one male over 16 and 3 females.

ULSTER

Francis McCall was born about 1710 in Ulster of Scotch parents. He arrived in Pennsylvania in 1730 and settled in Cumberland Valley near Shippensburg. He was a member of Middle Spring Presbyterian Church located at Big Spring, Pennsylvania, about two miles northwest of Shippensburg.

In 1746 he removed to the New River settlement in western Virginia. Indian depredations during the French and Indian War forced him to move his family to Mecklenburg County [then Anson County], North Carolina. Francis McCall received a land grant in Craven County, South Carolina in 1758, according to Ettie Augusta Tidwell McCall. He was the recipient of a land grant of 150 acres in South Carolina "between the main branch of Duncans Creek and Bush River from King George II January 22, 1759, according to "Secretary of State Grant Book," Volume 9, page 33.

He received a royal grant of land on Twelve Mile Creek in Anson County, NC, in 1762 and made his home there, according to Mecklenburg County Deed Book 13, page 343. Francis McCall was a member of the North Carolina militia from 1764 to 1766. He was appointed constable in his district in 1777 and served in the militia at that time. In 1781 and in 1787 his home was used as a polling place for inhabi­tants in the southeast portion of Mecklenburg County, according to "State Records of North Carolina." He was enumer­ated in the 1790 census of the county. He wrote his will November 25, 1793, and it was recorded in Mecklenburg County Will Book B, page 74. He named his daughter Jean McCall Porter as executrix, and she probated the will which is on file with North Carolina Historical Commission, Raleigh, in April 1794.

Notes for Charles McCall:
CHARLES McCALL and 1st wife CELETE ANN WILLIAMS are my biological paternal 4th great-grandparents.

From "McCall-Tidwell and Allied Families: "Charles McCall was born in 1732 in Pennsylvania (near the Virginia line), removed with his parents to the New River Settlement in Virginia, and then to South Carolina. (He obtained a Royal Grant of Land in South Carolina on February 21, 1772.) In 1755 he was married at the Welsh Neck Baptist Church (now Society Hill, Darlington District, South Carolina) to Celete Ann Williams (sometimes called Nancy), the daughter to Reverend Robert Williams, pastor of the Welsh Neck Baptist Church.

Charles McCall and his wife settled on Lynche's Creek, near the Great Peedee River in the Cheraw District, South Carolina. He owned many acres of land, many slaves, and was prominent in the political affairs of the Cheraw District ... He was a Patriot of South Carolina and gave material aid to the Continental Army and also served as a Revolutionary War Soldier. On his plantation on Lynche's Creek, a skirmish was fought, and the place is called McCall's Old Field ...

Later he was one of the wealthiest and most influential men of southeast Georgia. Received a land grant of 200 acres in Effingham County, Georgia, in 1784. Also owned land in Screven and Bulloch County. Owned many acres of land in Effingham, Bulloch, and Screven counties and also owned many slaves. He moved his family in 1785 to his plantation in Effingham (now Bulloch) County, and soon became a prominent figure in the political life of the State. Among the various public offices he held were Magistrate of Bulloch County and Commissioner, Justice of the Peace, 1792-1795; Judge of the Inferior Court for many years; State Senator, 1799, 1801, 1802, and Member of the House of Representatives from Bulloch County in the State Legislature, 1798-1803-1805-1806-1808. His name appears often on the early records of Effingham, Screven and Bulloch counties.

At Louisville, (Jefferson County) Georgia, then capital of the state, the celebrated Convention of 1798 met for deliberation and framed the state Constitution under which Georgia lived for over 70 years. Charles McCall was one of the delegates present as a Representative from Bulloch County."

Generation No. 3

21. Nathaniel McCall (Charles2, Francis "John"1) was born Abt. 1780 in Society Hill, Darlington District, SC, and died Bet. 1835-1850 in GA or AL. He married Mary Johnson December 02, 1807 in Bulloch County, GA. She was born Abt. 1784 in Society Hill, Lynches Creek, Darlington District, SC, and died Bet. 1820-1850 in GA or AL.

Notes for Nathaniel McCall:
NATHANIEL McCALL and MARY JOHNSON are my biological paternal 3rd great grandparents.
Mary Johnson's parents are currently unknown by me.

I ordered all the NARA request for Land Purchases in Wilcox County, Alabama (2003). The issue date on the four property purchases was 10 Apr 1837 and totals 438.9 acres.

On 01 April 1815 Nathaniel McCall sold to Charles McCall for $25 his 350 acres bounded on the west by Jonathan Griner's land, bounded on the north by George McCall's land and bounded on the south by Jesse Slater's land.
Witnesses: John Burnett and David Kennedy.
Recorded 01 June 1815 in Bulloch County, Georgia.

Nathaniel McCall was still alive in the 1820 and 1824 Census' for Pulaski County, GA. I lose my family in Georgia after that date. Both Nathaniel & Mary Johnson McCall disappear from any Georgia Federal Census bet. 1824-1830. I did find many land purchases near his son Bartlett Benjamin McCall in Wilcox County, Alabama for my NATHANIEL McCALL! Thus, he, and possibly his wife if she was still alive, moved to Alabama before his son.

I now have definate proof that this Nathaniel McCALL moved to Wilcox County, Alabama! Per his purchase of lands in said county and a form he filled out thusly:

No. 22558 Land-Office, Cahaba (Alabama), 04 May 1835
It is hereby certified that in pursuance of law, NATHANIEL McCALL, of Darlington County, South Carolina, on this day, purchased of the Register of the Land-Office, the Lot or Southeast quarter and East half of the South West Quarter of Section No 6, Township No. 11, Range No. 8 containing 239.85 acres, at the rate of $1.25 dollars per acre, amounting to $299.81, for which Lot the said Nathaniel McCall has made full payment as required by law:
Now, therefore, be it known, that on presentation of this certificate to the commissioner of the General Land-Office, the said Nathaniel McCall shall be entitled to receive a Patent for the Lot above described.
Signed: A Saltmarsh, Register.

Child of Nathaniel McCall and Mary Johnson is:
+57 i. Bartlett Benjamin "B. B." McCall, born 1815 in or near Hartford, Pulaski (fka Laurens & Wilkinson) County, GA; died 1865 in Elba, Coffee County, AL.


Generation No. 4

57. Bartlett Benjamin "B. B." McCall (Nathaniel3, Charles2, Francis "John"1) was born 1815 in or near Hartford, Pulaski (fka Laurens & Wilkinson) County, GA, and died 1865 in Elba, Coffee County, AL. He married Elizabeth Seay November 14, 1841 in Florence, Stewart County, GA. She was born Bet. 1815 - 1824 in GA, and died October 14, 1895 in Elba, Coffee County, AL. Her parents are unknown to me at this time.

Notes for Bartlett Benjamin "B. B." McCall:
BARTLETT BENJAMIN McCALL and ELIZABETH SEAY are my biological paternal 2nd great-grandparents.
Elizabeth Seay's parents are currently unknown by me.

Family Tree Maker CD-ROM has "B. B. McCALL married ELIZABETH LEEK 14 October 1844 in Stewart Co, GA". I do believe this is a mistake on the CD-ROM. Stewart County, Georgia, courthouse claims that no such marriage took place, but, they did have proof of his marriage to ELIZABETH SEAY. This marriage document is on-line.

***Bartlett Benjamin McCall's earlier lineage is originally from LDS***
A researcher at LDS said Bartlett's father was NATHANIEL McCALL b:1780 SC and his mother was CELETE ANN WILLIAMS b:1738 SC. This appears now to be true. I found this Nathaniel McCall in Wilcox County, Alabama, not far from where Bartlett McCall and family soon moved to.

There are three Alabama Land Purchases by Bartlett Benjamin McCall on line at the Bureau of Land Management.
