Stephen A. McCall has brought to bear effective service and correct methods and policies in the upbuilding of his substantial and prosperous plumbing and heating business in the village of Milford, where his well equipped establishment has a complete line of supplies and gives employment to several skilled mechanics. Mr. McCall was [Begin Page 319] born on a farm in Hartland township, Livingston county, Michigan, January 13, 1878, and is a representative of one of the sterling pioneer families of Oakland county, as is evident when it is noted that in Highland township, this county, his father, the late Robert F. McCall, was born in 1836, the year prior to the admission of Michigan to statehood. Robert F. McCall was long and successfully engaged in farm enterprise in Livingston and Oakland counties, and was one of the honored pioneer citizens of the latter, his native county, at the time of his death in 1922, his wife, whose maiden name was Mary Latson and who was born in Michigan in 1840, having passed away in 1900. The three surviving children, Sherman, Stephen A. and Anna (Mrs. Ruggles, of White Lake township), still own the old homestead farm in Milford township, and the same is under the active management of Sherman McCall. The district schools of his native township afforded Stephen A. McCall his early education, which was supplemented by his attending the high school at Milford. After leaving school he continued his alliance with farm enterprise in Milford township, besides having been for some time engaged in railroad work, and it was in the year 1914 that he established himself in the plumbing and heating business at Milford, where his success has been on a parity with his close application and his excellent service in his chosen field of activity. Mr. McCall is a Democrat in politics, and is affiliated with the Masonic fraternity, being a member of Blue Lodge and Royal Arch at Milford. November 1, 1899, Mr. McCall was united in marriage to Miss Anna Hibner, who likewise was born in Hartland township, Livingston county, where her father, the late Frederick Hibner, was a prosperous farmer, her mother likewise being deceased. Mr. and Mrs. McCall have two children: Freda, who was born June 14, 1901, was graduated in the Milford high school as a member of the class of 1920 and she is now giving effective service as bookkeeper in her father's business establishment. Robert, who was born July 27, 1903, was graduated in the Milford high school in 1921 and is now associated with his father's business.
