Charles Call is Walt Disney's Grandfather and is Father to Flora Disney (Call) Walt's Mother. Charles who was a school teacher is buried next to his wife Henrietta Call (Gross) Walt's Grandmother, she died on February 21, 1910. Charles and Henrietta are in an old rural cemetery called Ponceannah and have a headstone with inscriptions. Walt Disney's parents Flora and Elias Disney were married on January 1, 1888 in Kismet, FL not far from Ponceannah Cemetery. The Call's and Disney's both had homesteads and worked in an around Kismet and Acron, FL. Today both towns do not exist, but were near the present town of Paisley, FL. Various unpaved roads and trails lead to the site of the Call and Disney homesteads. Interesting fact is that Ponceannah Cemetery and the homestead sites are only about 50 miles north of Walt Disney World near Lake Buena Vista, FL. Close by Disney World is a city called Kissimmee that sounds like the town Kismet where Walt's parents were married (Kissimmee is indian for "Heaven's Place"). Ponceannah Cemetery is in a rural part of Northwest Lake County near Paisley, FL and closet major city is Deland, FL in Volusia County. The cemetery is past Paisley on the north side of CR 42 between Clearwater Lake Recreation Area and the Blackwater Creek Swamp near the southern boundary of the Ocala National Forest. Walt Disney and his Brother Roy later in life visited this area.
