Philip CALL II (1659 – 1691) was Alex’s 9th Great Grandfather; one of 1,024 in this generation of the Shaw line.
Philip Call was born 7 Jan 1659 in Ipswich, Massachusetts Bay. His parents were Philip CALL I and Mary Smith. Phillip died in Jan 1690 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. His will was probated on 22 Apr 1691.
One source states that Philip died after 1732, Portsmouth, New Hampshire, but there was a probated will for a Philip Call in 1691 and the early date explains why Philip III might be an only child.
No record of Phillip’s wife or marriage so this connection is speculative.

Alternatively, (according to Genealogical and family history of the state of New Hampshire: a …, Volume 3 By Lewis publishing company, Chicago 1908) ”Philip Call is said to have been one of two brothers who came to America from England. Philip is known to have been at Contoocook (Boscawen), as early as 1733. He was the first settler in that township after the granting of the Masonian proprietors, and was subsequently made a grantee, as is shown by the records. ” This is hearsay evidence from a hundred year old book, but Philip CALL II has a spotty paper trail as well.
