First, I believe that Cyril, his brother Rufus, and Cyril's son Anson Call, have their lineage incorrect.Joseph Call is not the son of John Call, but he is the grandson and great-grandson of two John Calls.
Ebenezer Call was a first cousin to Joseph Call.He was the son of Richard Call and Mary King.Richard Call was the brother to Samuel Call, father of Joseph Call. Samuel's and Richard's parents were JOHN Call and Martha Lowden. Rufus Call, son of Joseph Call and Mary Sanderson, whom Simeon Call quotes in his book "Genealogical History of the Call Family in the United State," calls Ebenezer "Uncle," because Ebenezer was married to Elizabeth Sanderson, sister to Mary Sanderson, wife of Joseph Call.
For two generations we have Joseph Call and his some of his children dying at very old ages.Rufus was 99 years old at death; Cyrus was 87 years old at death; Tryphenia Call Howe Call died at least 84 years old, and our Cyril (I am through his daughter Samantha) was 87 years old at death.People seem to think that our Joseph died at age 80 (from the Simeon Call book, ie., born in 1740 or so and then quote the month and day from the Charlestown, MA, of 11 Feb (without the year of 1725/26).However,
I believe he was born as according to Charlestown, MA, vital records (Julian calender)11 Feb 1725/26, and died around Jan. 1825, Geauga Co., OH.People have Joseph dying in 1820/1821, however, Joseph Call, Elder or pastor of the Baptist Church, married his widowed daughter in 1823 to his nephew Asa Call, Sr., son of James Call and his second wife Hannah Masters.
The key to all this quagmire for me, at least, the family book of Amanda Call Pease.She was the daughter of Jonathan P. Call, son of James Call and Anna Powers, who later married our Joseph Call in 1820.James Call was a brother to our Joseph Call and a first cousin to Ebenezer.I have systemically gone through Amanda's family book that was started in June 1853.I have found very few errors with my research when comparing her dates, people.She has James Call (brother to our Joseph) born quote, "James Call Born at Charleston Mass Sept 13 1728."This is according to the Gregorian Calender and matches up with the Julian calender date of 2 Sep 1728, Charlestown, MA (from Charlestown, MA, vital records).Add 11 days to the Julian calender and you get the 13th of Sep.In addition, in Amanda's family book, she has the death dates of James and Joseph bracketed together as brothers.So if James was born in 1728, there is no reason not to believe that Joseph was born in 1725/26.Joseph Call was 99/100 years old when he passed away.
As for John Call, brother to our Joseph, I also have the family book/accounting book of John Call.He was a deacon in the Baptist church in Colrain, MA, and died there 14 Apr 1808, at the age of 68.According to a teacher friend raised in that area of MA, there is a Call street named after him and Call descendants still living in Colrain.
Both Ebenezer and Joseph Call were veterans of the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War. Samuel Call had a brother, John, who died anywhere from 1713 to 1736 or later.
I would have to pursue his line further to be of any use to you regarding him.
