Charles Cumbie
Birth: Oct. 3, 1821
Newberry County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Jan. 24, 1907
Yell County
Arkansas, USA

Mr. Cumbie was the eldest son and child of Reuben and Sarah Ann Elizabeth McCall Cumbie; he was born in the Newberry District of South Carolina. He married Nancy Jane M. Gamble in 1845 (she was the daughter of David and Anna Finney Gamble). The Cumbies lived a significant portion of their married lives in Heard County Georgia, but the majority of their children were born just across the Alabama state line in Rock Mills (Randolph), Alabama, the home of Charles' parents. In 1880 the family moved to Excelsior, (Sebastian) Arkansas; Charles died at the home of his son John and wife Talitha near Iron Creek in Yell County Arkansas. Charles' great grandfather was Lieutenant Colonel James McCall Jr., a member of a company of Colonial Militia in South Carolina. He lived from 1741-1780, dying of small pox near Rugley's Mill (GA). "James McCall Sr. was born in Ireland and arrived in Philadelphia from Ulster about 1730. His family settled on Conach­Cocheque Creek in Pennsylvania. He was married about 1740 to Janet Harris, daughter of James Harris who accompanied the McCall emigration from Ireland. The McCalls and the Harrises joined the movement to New River, Virginia about 1750. James Harris died there at the age of 110, according to Ettie Augusta Tidwell McCall."
