Doreen Mc Call is the wife of my second cousin Alfred Mc Call who was the chief of police in East Greenwich for many years. His father is William Mc Call who was the chief of police in Providence. We used to always visit him and his wife Nell. I would like to find out what years my uncle William Mc Call was the chief of police in Providence. I think it may have been in the 1920’s or 1930’s. We visited him often in the 1950’s. My grandmother Annie Johnston Lister and Nell Johnston Mc Call were sisters. Thank you. Joan O’Connell Dewing [email protected]
