Birth: Mar. 27, 1773
Death: May 7, 1809

Peter McCall married Sarah Stamper Gibson on April 7, 1801 in Philadelphia. Sarah was born in Philadelphia July 24, 1773, the daughter of John Gibson, a native of Virginia, who removed to Philadelphia (of which he was twice elected Mayor on 1771 and 1772), by his wife Anna Ball.

Like his brothers Archibald, George and Samuel, Peter McCall became a Member of the First Troop of Philadelphia Light Horse, but resigned his connection with the body the same year (1802). He was a merchant, but not prospering in business, gave up his residence in Philadelphia, and retired to a home in the country, where he soon died from the effects of sunstroke May 7, 1809. His widow, with her family, thereupon removed to Trenton, N.J., where they dwelt, except for a short interval of time, until the graduation of Mrs. McCall's youngest son at Princeton College, when they returned to Philadelphia. Here Mrs. McCall died July 22, 1858.
