    Notes 
    • James H. McCall and Euphemia L. McCall were married about 1876. They spent most of their married life around Euclid, Pennsylvania. They had seven children. They enjoyed a normal family life for the times. James McCall spent most of his working life in the oil and gas fields of Western Pennsylvania. The last job he worked on was in McKeesport, Pennsylvania. There was a false report of gas being found there.
      When the children were old enough to go to work, they either worked on farms or went to the cities to find work. This changed about 1895, when the new railroad went through Euclid. The railroad was bring built to bring iron ore from Lake Erie to the steel mills in Pittsburgh. My father, Loyal B., went to work at 14 years of age riding a horse that pulled a scoop shovel. Today that combination would be called an earth mover.
      When the railroad was completed, the other children, with the exception of Mildred Jane and Oscar Lamont, went to Greenville, Pennsylvania. Mable Laverne married a man named Seeley and moved to Greenville to live. The railroad had built repair shops there and Floyd Joe, Roy James and Clair Victor went there to work. Oscar lived in Euclid all of his life working at the general store. Mildred Jane married Dwight Painter and moved to Kane, Pennsylvania. Mildred was a school teacher.
      After the Bessemer and Lake Erie railroad was finished, Loyal Bruce worked on railroad construction around Sayre and Emporium, Pennsylvania. Loyal Bruce married Brenda Bessie Seaton in 1904 and moved to Turtle Creek, Pennnsylvania. He went to work on the street cars. Around 1920 he went to work at Columbia Steel and Shafting Company as a millwright. He retired at the age of 72. He died at age 89 in 1970. His wife Brenda died in 196l. My father and mother lived their married life in the Pittsburgh area.
      There were two children of this marriage:
      Harvey Bruce married Margaret McQuillen: one child.
      Aleta Jane married to James E. White: three children
      Lorraine, Pamela and James: at home.
      All live in the Pittsburgh area.

      Robert Seaton married Thelma Williams: three children.
      Thelma L. married to Ronald P. Evelhoch: four children of this marriage:
      Michele married to Gary Ishler: one child, Derek.
      Michael, Patty Joe, and Gregory: at home, all living in the Lewistown, Pennsylvania area.
      Valerie A. McCall, Willingboro, New Jersey.
      Robert S. McCall II, Berkeley, California.
      Thelma W. McCall died in 1956.
      Robert S. married Christine E. Crum in 1960.
      Written by: Robert S. McCall, son of Loyal Bruce McCall, September 1983.

      Note: James Harvey McCall is the son of Euphemia's half-brother, William Wasson McCall. James Harvey McCall is the nephew of Euphemia Louise McCall. Their common ancestor is William John (Little Billy) McCall.

      James H. McCall & Euphemia Louise McCall are buried in Union Cemetery, West Sunbury, Pennsyvlania.
