52 Ancestors: #26, Sarah Jane Previtte McCall

Amy Johnson Crow of No Story To Small has started a challenge of 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks.

From her blog “The challenge: have one blog post each week devoted to a specific ancestor. It could be a story, a biography, a photograph, an outline of a research problem — anything that focuses on one ancestor. Not only should this get me blogging more, but also to take a deeper look at some of the people in my family tree.”

The focus today is my Great Grand Aunt – Sarah Jane Previtte McCall.

Sarah Jane Previtte was born on 20 May 1871 in Chesterfield County, South Carolina to John Washington Previtte and Elizabeth “Bette” Davis. Her oldest sister, Mary Hulda, is my Great Grandmother.1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Sarah Jane had 10 siblings growing up as a young lady; 4 sisters and 6 brothers. As she approached her eighteen birthday she must have been madly in love James Francis “Jack” McCall. Jack was the son of William A. McCall and Anna Elizabeth Purvis. Sarah Jane and Jack were married in 1889. Marriage licensees for this period do not exist; this date is based on data reported to the Census Taker in the 1900 census, married 11 years, 3 children, 3 living.8 

James Francis McCall and Sarah Jane Previtte had the following children:

i. Willie May McCall, born 18 Dec 1892, Cheraw, Chesterfield, South Carolina; married Joseph B. Harding.
ii. Mary Elizabeth McCall, born 12 Oct 1894, Cheraw, Chesterfield, South Carolina; married William Evander Summerford.
iii. John Alexander McCall, born 28 Jul 1896, Cheraw, Chesterfield, South Carolina; married Elizabeth McLeod.
iv. Nancy Ross McCall, born 18 Oct 1900, Cheraw, Chesterfield, South Carolina; married Walter Jackson Williamson.
v. James Howard McCall was born on 22 Jul 1906 in Cheraw, Chesterfield, South Carolina.

Jack died on 24 Nov 1943 and was buried at Old Saint David’s Episcopal Church Cemetery.9 His wife, Sarah Jane passed away 15 months later on 22 February 1945. She is buried beside her husband at Saint David’s Episcopal Church Cemetery.10 11
