I am looking to make contact and exchange information with the descendants of Harry Mitchell, born circa 1869 in Lincoln Town., Polk Co., Wisconsin, the son of Joseph Andrew Mitchell and Amanda Lyford. He had a sister Stella Almeda, and a half brother Wyval. He went to Oregon about 1890 with the Mooers family. He married Jenette or Jenetta. They had known children: Violet, Ada, Stewart, Joseph, Leonard, plus an unknown girl (possibly Nina.)

This Mitchell line had close ties with the Oregon-Mooers (my line) stretching back to the late 1700's in New Brunswick, Canada. I am writing a family history and would very much like to include more about this family after they came to Oregon. Harry's sister Stella was my 2nd great grandmother. These families had strong ties until at least the 1960's, perhaps even longer.

Anyone willing to talk to me about Harry (or Wyval) Mitchell's descendants, I'd very much appreciate such assistance. I have info about Harry's ancestors going back 4 or 5 generations that I could share. I also have a scanned copy of a short letter Joseph Mitchell wrote during the Civil War (though a couple lines are illegible.)
