McCall Monument

 

The old cemetery was to the right of State Route 24 and the right of County Route 23, now in a cow pasture.  The original stones were taken out, piled up and cemented over.  Two flat markers on each side were placed facing out and one at each corner of the base in the same manner.  In the summer of 1958 the cement is crumbling to show that the old markers were piled up and cemented over.  There is said to be quite a story in connection with this “monument” but we at present do not know the correct version.  One of the markers with which it is faced is that of James McCall who died in 1856 aged 82.

Page 791 of the 1895 History of Allegany County says that James McCall came in 1818 with William B. Rochester, and in 1816 with John Dow, represented Allegany and Steuben in the assembly.  Judge McCall was a state senator from the 8th district in 1824, 25 ,26 and 27.

Page 808 of the same volume states that “Judge James McCall, who came with Levi Benjamin in 1814 was the first storekeeper bought and ran the Warren grist mill in 1818, filled many town and county offices, represented Allegany in the state legislature in 1818, 1819 and 1823 and was the most prominent citizen of Rushford for many years.

Other references of the period show his importance not only to his town but to the county.  Does it not seem sad that his grave and those of his family should be in such a sad condition??

Note: (2006)  The highway map shows the McCall Monument on Route #243 between East Centerville Rd and Rt 23.  To date we have not been able to locate it.  If anyone knows more about this burial plot and monument please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots.
