John (McColl) McCall was born in the ancient District of Appin, Argyllshir e, Scotland, and he emigrated to Charleston, South Carolina on the same sh ip that brought Edward Campbell to the colonies. So it can be assumed th at he was well acquainted with the family. In circa 1810, in the old Mari on District of South Carolina, he married Edward's oldest daughter, Mary C ampbell and they settled in the Old Liberty District of Charleston. John 's trade was that of a shipbuilder. When Edward Campbell headed for weste rn Florida, John McCall and Mary Campbell, and their two sons, Hugh and Ed ward, traveled with him along with a small group of Scottish settler s. In the first census of 1820, taken by the Spanish Governor of Florid a, he appears there along with his wife, Mary. In the first 1830 Federal C ensus for Escambia County, he is also present. Around 1836, John and MaryM cCall moved from Santa Rosa County, Florida to the now dead community of W illiams Crossroads, in Choctaw County, Alabama. *The McColls were a sept of the McDonald clan, but they were more close ly allied with the Stewarts of ancient Appin. They fought on the side of t he Stewarts in the Battle of Culloden on April, 1746, when Bonnie Prince C harles Edward Stewart was defeated. The Argyll Campbell fought on the si de of the English with the Duke of Cumberland. 1830 Federal Census of Escambia Co.
