Obituary: A good and noble man has passed from the scenes of Earth to the endless experience of eternity--an experience which no being has every reported back to loved ones here. Dr. Pat McCall, honest big-hearted, lovable man that he was, was freed in the spirit from tenement of clay at some moment near the hour of 1:30 last Monday morning, the 17th inst. Father's Day had just been ushered out when the soul of one of the most devoted fathers it has ever been my fortune to know (and to love myself) winged its flight back to Him who gave it, and to my manner of thinking, Pat McCall had nothing to fear. As we heard a relative say of him, he has always been at peace with all men, and the type of man has nothing to fear that God who has admonished all of us to love our neighbors as ourselves. In writing the passing of Dr. McCall I shall put aside the fact that I am a newspaper man and speak of him as a personal friend whom I had known and loved for more than a quarter of a century, ever since he became a resident of Lexington in 1902 and possibly before that. Patrick Henry McCall was a son of the late Henry and Mrs. Frances McCall and was born at old Clarksburg, Carroll County, November 3rd, 1856. The manner of his passing from life was this: He had been sick for some week and while he grew better, his condition remained precarious, so much that I am told he himself anticipated the possibility of going as he did. On Saturday he was able to take a car ride with his daughter, Miss Jessie, and Saturday night sat up until 9:00 o'clock talking to his next-door neighbor, Mayor W.R. Holland, after which he retired. At some time after midnight he evidently found it necessary to get up and sit in his chair at this bedside, which he did without awakening Mrs. McCall, and in his chair he was found dead by her at 1:35 Monday morning. There is a strong hope that he slipped out of life and into the Great Beyond without a struggle. Fifty-two years ago P.H. McCall was married to Miss Mollie Meals, daughter of the late Louis and Mrs. Martha Meals, of Carroll County, and of the eight children born to the union, two died young, Henry in January 1915, and George in September, 1922. The surviving four are Louis, of Memphis, Miss Jessie, at home, Allie Mae (Mrs. Edgar Yarbro) of Bruceton, and Martha (Mrs. J.H. McDonald ) of Memphis. Of his brothers, George T. died in Huntingdon in February 1922, and Federal Judge John E. died in Huntingdon in 1920, but lived in Memphis. One brother, J.C.R. McCall, a Nashville lawyer, survives. Of his sisters, both widows, Mrs. Callie Williams died in 1922, and Mrs. Jennie Scott died in 1927. One sister, Ella, (Mrs. Dr. J.B. Cox) of Huntingdon, survives, and she was the youngest of this entire family. Dr. McCall was broad and liberal in his religious views and I am told joined the Methodist Church at Clarksburg and never moved his membership. I have talked to him of morals, but both of us knew that our religious belief was strictly our own business, and I know that he had no use for the fighting preacher. The funeral service was held in the home at 10:30 Tuesday, Rev. Fleetwood Ball having charge of the service ably assisted by Elder Hampton, of Carroll County, a Primitive Baptist minister, and old friend Rev. G.W. Florence, the local pastor of the M.E. Church. The songs used were selections of the family and their rendition by friends of the deceased were indeed appropriate. The floral tributes were beautiful coming as tokens of love from relatives and friends. May his soul rest in peace.--W.V.Barry

They had the following children:
i. Ernest. Born in Jun 1879. Ernest died on 8 Jul 1879. Buried in Jul 1879 in Blair Cemetery, Clarksburg, 13th District, Carroll County, Tennessee.

ii. Henry. Born on 8 May 1880 in Clarksburg, 13th District, Carroll County, Tennessee. At the age of 34, Henry died in Lexington, Henderson County, Tennessee on 7 Jan 1915.

Obituary: Henry McCall, elder son of Dr. P.H. and Mollie A. McCall, was born at Clarksburg, Carroll County, May 8, 1880, and departed this life at the home of his parents in Lexington, January 7, 1915, after an illness of several weeks attributable to white swelling with which he had been afflicted from time to time and seriously crippled since he was a boy of 7 years. Henry's last illness was full of great pain which was borne with all posssible fortitude. He knew that his end was at hand but did not fear to meet it, sustained as he was by the knowldege that he had made the best of life with the opportunities given him. Some years ago he made profession of religion, and that sustained him until the last, notwithstanding he joined no church. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity in Constantine Lodge No. 64, and when the religious service at the home was closed by Rev.s Fleetwood Ball and H.C. Johnson at 1:30 o'clock, Firday afternoon, the Masons took charge and the funeral was conducted with the impressive rites of the order. Henry McCall was a young man of excellent character and was well liked to the extent that he was known. He came to Lexington with his parents in 1902, had lived all of his life since here and we can say in truth that every friend won in that time was still his when the last summons called him to the Great Beyond. While he was a good and true friend, his greatest characteristic was his loyalty to his family, his parents, brothers, sisters, and all whom he was connected by the ties of blood. Not under any circumstances did his loyal soul every waiver in allegiance to those who veins flowed the same blood as that which coursed through his. The funeral service and internment were attended by a large concourse of friends and relatives and the floral offerings, eloquent testimonials of the love in which he was held, were unusually beautiful and numerous. Henry is survived by his parents, two brothers, Louis and George, and three sisters, Misses Jessie and Allie May and Martha, Mrs. James McDonald, Memphis.

142 iii. Louis (1882-1959)
iv. Jessie Florence. Born on 29 May 1885. Resided in Lexington, Henderson County, Tennessee in 1921. Resided in Lexington, Henderson County, Tennessee in 1946. Occupation: School Teacher in Lexington, Tennessee.

The announced candidacy of Miss Jessie McCall for the office of Trustee of Henderson County is peculiar in the fact that she is the first woman who has ever aspired to a county office by the votes of the people either in a primary or general election, and in this instance, Miss Jessie, being a Republican and the off-spring of a long line of Republicans, is subject to the Republican voters of the county in a primary set for Thursday, April 9, 1942. While women have not been elected by the vote of the people of Henderson County, a few of them have filled offices by election of the County Court. Mrs. T.R. Sisson, Mrs. Sid B. Rhodes and Mrs. H.M. Teague were elected to fill out the terms of their respective husbands. All gave satisfaction in filling the offices with which they were entrusted. Miss Jessie McCall is the daughter of the late Dr. P.H. McCall, who was one of our best loved citizens and passed away several years ago.

Nineteen years ago last January George came to Lexington with his parents and here obtained his limited education, for at as early an age as possible he went to work on the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railroad in which service he was promoted to the rank of engineer in the spring of last year. On November 12, 1919, he was married to Miss Grace Rossen, Memphis, who formerly lived here, but the ceremony was performed in Jackson.

George spent 22 months in the great world war, during which time he saw active bloody service with the 81st Division in France and he was among the American boys who first "went over the top" and got the credit of turning the tide against the Huns. George had always been a boy whom we loved, and he made a man of whom we could not fail to be proud. He came out of the army in June, 1919, since which time his health failed, slowly, gradually but surely. The remains were brought to Lexington Saturday afternoon and kept under the paternal roof until Tuesday afternoon when the funeral service was held in the home, conducted by Rev.
