Looking for John Mitchell's origins. He married Rebecca Ackley abt 1727 in East Haddam, Middlesex, Connecticut. He died 1757/1758 in Colchester, Connecticut. His first child was Zephaniah Mitchell who served in the Revolutionary War and died 11 Mar 1822 in Chatham, Middlesex, Connecticut. He married Elizabeth Fox June 7, 1757 in Colchester. He and his brothers inherited land from their father in Colchester as evidenced by Land Records. Zephaniah's brother John Mitchell of East Haddam appt. administrator of estate of John Mitchell of Colchester: Feb. 7, 1757: (2: 404). He married Hepzibah Shepardson Jan 04 1758 in Colchester. I have been unable to find proof of the birthplace of either John Mitchell (spouse of Rebecca Ackley) or his son Zephaniah Mitchell.
DNA has shown that we are NOT descended from Experience Mitchell. It would also be a 'stretch' to be descended from either the Mitchell/Catlin or the Matthew Mitchell line, although not impossible.
Any help finding the origins of this Mitchell family will be greatly appreciated!
