Ettie Augusta Tidwell McCall wrote of him:

 

"In the invasion of South Carolina by the British, the fierce Cherokees thought they saw a favorable opportunity to overwhelm the frontiers and sweep away the settlements in a hurricane of slaughter.  The British plan and the Indian ambi­tion were therefore in full accord.  Capt. John Stuart, his Majesty's superin­tendent of Indian affairs for the southern district which included North Caro­lina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida with the assistance of Alexander Cam­eron, the Cherokee Indian agent, was always the chief agency behind the up­ris­ing which was always threatening, and they were in close cooperation with Gen. Gage, the British Commander in Chief in Boston."

 

The Council of Safety of South Carolina decided to capture Alexander Cameron and remove him from the scene of his mischief making.  That hazard was en­trusted to Capt. James McCall of the 96th District with Captain James Baskin and Ensign Patrick Calhoun as his associates.  The party marched from the Cherokee Ford on the Savannah River, and after a six day trip encamped near a large town in the Cherokee Nation where a conference was entered into with the chiefs.  While thus engaged, the little force under Capt. McCall was surprised by a party of Cherokee warriors.  Ensign Calhoun and three others were killed, and Capt. McCall was taken prisoner. 

 

He remained a prisoner for several weeks, during which time some of the prison­ers were horribly tortured.  Capt. McCall was sentenced to be executed, but managed to escape.  With a pint of parched corn and a few green ears, he tra­versed the mountains for over 800 miles on horseback without a saddle.  On the ninth day he reached the Virginia frontier and fell in with some troops on their way to the Carolinas to fight the Cherokees.  Shortly afterward the Amer­icans swept through the Cherokee country and broke their power.  The Cherokees sued for peace, and in the resultant treaty ceded lands to South Carolina be­tween the Savannah River and the Enoree River which included the counties of Greenville, Oconee, Anderson and Pickens."

 

After his escape from the Cherokees he requested a newspaper insertion, according to "Virginia Historical Magazine" to advise his family that he was free:

 

"Captain James McCall of South Carolina who was captured July 1, 1776 by the Cherokees and who escaped has a wife and five children now on the bank of the Broad River and wishes it to be published in the Gazette that he is here and well.  By this means it will get into the Carolina papers and reach his fam­ily."

On March 21, 1829 at the request of the oldest child of his second marriage, Sarah Georgiana McCall Spivey, he wrote a history of his branch of the McCall family:

 

"The family of which I am descended were Scots, and in Scotland lived in the neighborhood of Calhoun, properly Colquhun.  The time of their migration is not known, but McCalls, Harrises and Calhouns passed over from Scotland in the same ship to the northeast of Ireland where they settled and remained two entire generations.  Then the three families migrated to Pennsylvania where my grand­father, James McCall was married to Janet Harris, the elder daughter of James Harris and settled as a farmer on Conachcocheque Creek, where my father James McCall, Agnes, Hugh and Rachel were born, the former on the 11th of August, 1741.

 

The three families removed from Conachcocheque Creek, Pennsylvania to New River or Little Kenhoway in the western part of Virginia where they remained for a number of years and where Thomas McCall, William McCall and Jane were born.  The three families were driven away by the Indians after several of the Cal­houns were killed.  James Harris, my great-grandfather, remained on New River and died there at the advanced age of 110 years of age.  His children were: Janet McCall Robertson, Isabella Wylly, James McCall; Robert Robertson and James Wylly settled in Mecklenburgh County, N. C., where my father James McCall married Elizabeth McCall, daughter of Thomas McCall, 2nd cousin of my grandfa­ther James McCall.  John, William and Patrick Calhoun removed into South Car­olina and gave name to Calhoun's Settlement on Little River, a branch of Long Cane.

 

My grandfather, James McCall's family married in Mecklinburgh, viz:

 

My father, James McCall, married in 1763 to Elizabeth McCall, daughter of Thomas McCall and Margaret Greenfield.  Agnes McCall married Elias Alexander.  Rachel McCall married Thomas McCall.  Thomas McCall married Jane Harris, daugh­ter of Samuel Harris.  William McCall married Elizabeth Stewart, daughter of Mathew Stewart.  Jane McCall married Robert Harris, son of John Harris.

 

My maternal grandmother was Margaret Greenfield; she had two sisters, Esther and -------; the former married Andrew Elliott, the latter married James Barr.

 

My grandfather James McCall had a brother named Thomas McCall who settled in Wilmington in Delaware, and, I think, another brother William McCall of whom I know nothing.

 

My grandfather Thomas McCall had children viz: Elizabeth McCall, my mother; Margaret who married Thomas Harris; Jane who married John Luckie; Martha mar­ried Samuel Nelson; Ann and Mary died young.  All who were married had several children; I know not what became of them.

 

None of my family were men of letters except my uncle Thomas who went to col­lege, and changed his name to Thomas Harris McCaule.  His posterity:

 

Laird; Malinda married William Pindar, issue, Jane Pindar married Capt. J. M. Russell; Penelope; Leroy; Thomas, I; Thomas, II; Jane married Capt. Phillips of Manchester, England, had a daughter Melinda and died.  All died without issue except Jane and Melinda.

 

My father's descendants were: Thomas (the narrator); Janet; Margaret; James; Elizabeth; William.

 

Patrick Calhoun, father of John C. Calhoun, Vice-President of the U. S, paid us a visit in 1793 or 1794 and gave his benediction to three of my oldest children and said to me: 'This is the fifth generation of your family I have had by the hand and intimately known' and mentioned to me several of the above circum­stances. 

 

I was born 19th of March, 1764, old style, which was properly at the time, 19th or 30th of March 1765, new style; uncertain which day as those old folks, all farmers, were not very learned and adhered to the old style and old year for a number of years after the beginning of the new was altered from 25th March to the last of January.
