Burlin and Ernestine McCall

Burlin and Ernestine McCall, of Brevard, celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary, Jan. 14, 2019. They were married Jan. 14, 1949, "by a one-armed judge in Pickens," (S.C.), as they liked to say. He tells the story that when she was 10 years old, he saw her and threw a stick at her and told her she sure was a pretty thing and that when she got older, he was "gonna" come get her and marry her. Sure enough, he came knocking. A few years later and 70 years later, here they are.

They brought three beautiful children into the world, and have four grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
