I'm the great, great grandson of David Preston Cale. David, his brother James Carr Cale and their sisters' families moved to Wichita, KS from Paris & Westfield, IL in the period of 1879 - 1885. Several members of their extended family and some friends moved here too. Both served in the Illinois Infantry during the Civil War as did their brother-in-laws. Kansas was known as "The Great Soldiers State" and attracted many Civil War Veterans. David's father was William Allen Cale who came from the Staunton, VA area - a Great Grandson of (the famous) David Kell/Keel/Cale from Germany.
