GRANDMA MAMIE THE SPOKESPERSON


I had found Georgia Newspapers online not too long ago. I talked about how I found Mamie McCall’s obit June 12, 1915. In the same year I found an advertisement . It was for Doan’s Pills. My gg grandmother Mamie had been in ill-health for a while. I found a few articles in the newspaper that were of interest….the advertisement for Doan’s, the note of Mamie’s illness and an advertisement by her son, for his blacksmith shop, C R McCall, Blacksmith. Mamie died on June 11th or 12th, 1915.

Times-Enterprise April 7,1915

The advertisement is at the top labeled, ” positive proof ” and  CR McCall blacksmith on the right. C R McCall ran ads from 1912 -1913 in the Times-Enterprise in Thomasville Georgia.

C R must have moved somewhere between 1910 and 1912 to be closer to family. He had two small children to raise. My grandmother, Mamie C McCall was born in 1910, in Ocilla Georgia,and we know that Maude Jeffers left the family sometime after that. C R McCall and children left Thomas county , probably to go with father and sisters to Florida, to start a new life. He later started a blacksmith shop in Plant City Florida.

I also found records of brothers to C R  visiting, back and forth. From Thomasville, to Albany and then to Americus. They were Yvonne, Carl H and Joseph E McCall.
