The Cyril & Sarah "Sally" Tiffany Call Family
Cyril and his wife, Sarah (who went by "Sally") were pioneers in every sense of the word. They started out in Vermont, where they purchased and cleared land for a farm. After a while, they and their large family moved to north eastern Ohio where they again purchased and cleared property for a farm. While in Ohio, Cyril and his family joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They moved west with the Church to Missouri, then to Nauvoo, Illinois, and eventually settled in Davis County, Utah, in the area that is now called Bountiful. Many members of the Call family, including Cyril and Sally, were buried in the Bountiful Cemetery. Perhaps the most famous of their vast posterity was their son, Anson. One of the best places to search for information about Anson and the entire family of Cyril Call is an excellent book called Anson Call and the Rocky Mountain Prophecy by Gwen Marler Barney. It is very well written and researched, and is filled with photographs, diagrams, maps, and other illustrations. We highly recommend it. The book was published by Call Publishing in Salt Lake City, Utah, and its ISBN is 0-9721527-0-9.
