    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 Reverand 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 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 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."
