Son of Joseph and Mary Sanderson Call.
Husband of Sally or Sarah Tiffany Call.
Died at Bountiful, Davis County, Utah 23 May 1873, of jaundice, after a lingering sickness of six weeks, Cyril Call, age 88 years less one month and six days.
He was born at Woodstock, Vermont, 29 June 1785, unto Joseph Call, who was for forty years a Baptist Minister in Vermont and also served under Gen. Washington in the Revolutionary War. His father, Samuel Call served in Quebec under Gen. Wolfe during the French and English War of 1759. While the Father of Samuel Call, John, was a soldier during the French of King William War of 1689, Cyril Call served during the War of 1812 and was in the engagement of Plattsburgh under General Macomb in 1814, thus becoming a pensioner under the Act of 1871.
He became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Oct. 1831, being baptized by Elder John Murdock in the Town of Madison, Lake County, Ohio. He was with the Saints of Kirtland, whence he moved with his family to Missouri, suffering the trials and privations of that journey. He was driven into Illinois where he settled at Hancock County where his home was burned and his property destroyed by a mob led by Lawyer Stephens of Warsaw, the Worthy Master of the Hancock Masonic Lodge of which he, Cyril Call, was a member. This Stephens, at the time of the mobbing, asked him to renounce his Mormon faith, which not being done, he ordered the mob to do their duty, which consisted of burning their house and laying waste to their property. Thence he moved with his family to Council Bluffs, and in 1850 (1849) they emigrated to Utah where he has since resided, in Bountiful, Davis County, surrounded by the saints and his posterity, consisting of 97 boys and the same number of girls, 154 of which survive him.
He was the father of 13 children of whom one died when 18 months old. The other twelve became members of the church and came to this territory, save one who died on the way at Council Bluffs. (This child died at Fort Leavenworth.) He lived to see his children of the fourth generation, many of whom surrounded his dying bed.
His remains were interred in the Cemetery at Bountiful, 25 May 1873, being followed to the grave by a large concourse of sorrowing relatives, friends and acquaintances who mourn the loss of an aged father and honorable citizen and society of a just and independent man.
