JAMES M. CALL, now one of the prosperous and influential farmers of the county was born near Mooretown, Ohio, April 11, 1832. In his childhood, sitting on the slab benches of the old log school-house of that day, Mr. Call received his schooling; but in spite of those disadvantages is a well-read and intelligent man. Since his youth he has been engaged in farm duties and is now one of the most skillful of Jefferson county farmers. He and family are members of the Methodist Episcopal church, and in politics he is a staunch republican. He was married March 28, 1853, to Rebecca McClain, who was born November 12, 1832, the daughter of John McClain, a native of Beaver county, Penn. and his wife, Ruth Miles. Mr. Call and wife have had four children: David J. (deceased), Roxanna, Estella, James H. and Emerson E.
