I finally found the early tax records of Joy (later Troy, Waldo County, Maine.) The Troy Town Office could not find the early Troy Tax Records from 1822 on. Ralph E. Hillman, who compiled the early vital records of Troy, has a microfilm of the tax records in his home. He made the copy when he was doing his compilation of vital records.

David Mitchell was taxed in Troy (called by several names) from 1822-1829; Sally Mitchell was taxed in Troy in 1829. She married Lewis Call in Jan 1830; Lewis Call was taxed in Troy in 1830, and then moved to Bradley, Maine about 1831.

David Mitchell bought the homestead of William Mitchell in September 1822; he lived on this property until 1829, when he seems to have died.

Does anyone have any information on the children of William Mitchell and Jane Snow? I believe David was one of their children and that he was born about 1799. There is a list of William's children by Karen Vanderkamp (2001) which does not list David. Also her list shows "Julinan", probably meant to be Juliann--whom I think was a child of Christopher Mitchell.
