As it stands currently, these aforementioned pieces of data are extracted from a data compilation of unknown credibility. In addition, the source record is also only accessible via paid access, which isn't ideal. Feel free to remove this note if/when a better and/or more broadly accessible source is added. — J. G. Coleman, Wolcott, CT

Profile should be privacyopen since he was born 250 years ago, and parents should also be privacyopen. See American Revolution veteran, ancestor of Walt Disney. Parents: John Call (1739 - 1808) and Lucy Chaffee Call (1742 - 1797). Thanks so much....
