Richard, Thank you so much for the information you have sent on A.W. Mitchell. I had some of it but you had more. I been trying for 11 years now to find information on his father Peter (from Ireland) and the family as my g grandfather was Herod Mitchell who was left out of the information for the living brothers. (maybe a family tiff).Peter would be my gg grandfather.
I have only been able to find half of the family but no real information. Those i came across in the Rochester Station Cem. in Rochester Twp, Lorain Co, Ohio.(also census) They were Peter Mitchell d July 30, 1856, 63y
wife Catharine (Conklin)Mitchell 1810-D Aug 4,1899
James d Nov 1, 1852, 16y 7m 26d
George C. d Mar 15, 1865
Adelbert W. 1848-1922, CO F 3rd OVC
wife Medora 1853-1885
dau Rena married Charles Call who had Dora A and Jay A Call
Sidney G Mitchell 1835-1917, CO F 3rd OVC
He was known to of been in Avon South Dakota Davison C or Bon Homme at one time (?)
Margaret J (Mitchell) Collins 1835-1908 was married to Sylvester Collins 05 Oct 1886 in Eaton Co, MI (he is buried in Mi) Margart in Oh with mother and father.
Peter Mitchell jr d Apr 11, 1850 6y 1 m 12d
Ida May Mitchell d Oct 31,1862 6y 1m 21d (i questioned the dates from person in care of cemetery all she said was for Ida the 12d should read 21d as they were both the same)
Franklin O Mitchell 1845-1919
wife Mary C 1841-1927
dau Lillian 1874-1891
Elsie -Married Paul Clifford
Lena marr Milton Perkins
Charles marr Lenna Knapp
Mabel marr Alton Bradford
Bertha ?
Possible dau of Peter & Cathraine-
Abigail (Mitchell) Bittel-July7, 1833-May 20, 1877
husband Edward Feb 81830=July 4, 1868 spelling is sometimes Bittle
Also was a Rachel Mitchell (no dates) in same lot as some of the Mitchells.
Howard Eaton was the Sexton but was no help on records-had his daughter contact me one question on Ida May but she in turn would never reply on anymore.
I found George- James- and Sidney in civil war.
I have been trying to trace the family to see if anyone has any information as to where in Ireland Peter came from and his parents but not having very good luck. Herrod B.(Herod) Mitchell 1840-)Oct 2, 1913 and his son William Grant Mitchell 1873-)Oct 5, 1913 died within days of each other. Herod moved from Oh to Mi and is buried in Maple Hill Cem Eaton Co,Charlotte,Mi. I have Peters papers of intent to become a citizen living in New York,Jerusluem dated back to 20th of Janurary 1835
If you should run across any other information on my Ohio Mitchell's please send it my way.Welling to pay for expense Thanks so much-Gabby
