I am interested in all things Allen (Allan) Mitchell and have been reading up the various correspondence and data on the name.
My GG was Allen (Allan) Mitchell born around 1850 earlier or later or thereabouts. As you can see, my clan do not have much data on him and what we do have is all by word of mouth and pretty much garbled.
Various versions say he was born somewhere in Texas or in one of the east coast states. The other name connected to him (it is on his headstone) is Carisasa and the other version is Calicosa. He was an American with a mixture of Spanish?/Portugese?/American Indian?
We have no knowledge of who his mother and father were and I am really fishing for connections.
He was a blacksmith and harpooner off a whaling boat and he used to tell stories of places such as Chile, Peru, Argentina, The falklands and frozen seas and islands.
He left his ship in Tahiti (French Polynesia) when he fell in love with my great grandmother Roimata. They had 8 children, all with names given by him. He said they were family names - Mary,Michael (Michel), Louisa, Marthalina, Roseline (Rosaline), John, Louis, Martin.
Don't know if you can help but I have to start somewhere.
Thanks.
