  • Notes 
    • Archibald McCall, son of George and Anne (Yeates) McCall, was born in Philadelphia, Pa., June 26, 1727 (N. S.). He engaged in mercantile pursuits in partnership with his elder brother Samuel McCall, Jr., and, after the death of the latter, acquired a very considerable fortune by trade in both the East and the West Indies. He resided the greater part of his life in a large mansion on the northeast corner of Union and Second streets, in our city, with a fine garden extending along Union Street, and is mentioned in Du Simitiere's list of eighty-four families that kept equipages in Philadelphia in 1772, as owning one "post-chaise." He was a Member of the Association Battery Company of 1756. He was elected a Common-Councilman of Philadelphia, October 2, 1764. He was one of a committee of seven persons chosen at a meeting of citizens assembled at the State House October 5,1765, to wait upon John Hughes, the Stamp Agent, to request his resignation of the obnoxious office, and signed the famous Non-Importation Resolutions.

      He was a Subscriber to the First Dancing Assembly of Philadelphia in 1749, and the Mount Regale Fishing Company in 1763. He became a Member of the St. Andrew's Society in 1751. He was a Vestryman of Christ Church. He was married in 1762 to Judith, daughter of Peter Kemble, of Mount Kemble, for many years Member and President of the Provincial Council of New Jersey, by his first wife, Gertrude, daughter of Samuel Bayard, by his wife Margaret, daughter of Stephanus van Cortlandt.
