Mr Kerwin. I don't think we are gonna find them. Clum's last name was Mathis. There is a story in our family that they decended from an ancestor on the trail of tears. Since they could not speak any english. The girls may have not known where they were born. Wiliam M Mitchell was born ca 1855 in Missouri. He was Cherokee??. We have been working this line since 1999. Until just recently--things started to fall into line. The bible record shows William Mitchell's father as Elsa Mitchell. We found William Mitchell's brothers. James Riley Mitchell. John M Mitchell--with his son Alonso--Lonnie. Lonzo is a family name. They must have traveled together into OK. They all are on the 1900 OK census--along with the Brazell family.
I appreciate any avenues of help you can give us.
This is my hardest line yet. I have one family from 1810--with name changes. Owen line is completed-from 1810.
God bless
