Your John always claims LA birth on census.
Based on location (closest to the areas he resided in as an adult) and birth time frame, in the 1880 census the CLOSEST matches to be your John Mitchell are:
John Mitchell Henry,Alphine 3rd Ward, De Soto, LA abt 1874 Louisiana Son
John Mitchell William H.,Lila 4th Ward, Red River, LA abt 1874 Louisiana Son
John W. Mitchell Ashley S.,Ellen 3rd Ward, Webster, LA abt 1877 Mississippi Son
John Mitchell 7th Ward, Catahoula, LA abt 1877 Louisiana Something other than a direct relationship


Since you have his date of death, and know that he died either in Sabine or Natchitoches County, have you gotten a copy of his death certificate yet?
