I am searching for family info on Louis MITCHELL who was born around 1803 in Maine and who was living in Phippsburg, Sagadahoc Co., ME in 1860(census), and in Westport, Lincoln Co., ME in the 1870 (census).
In 1860 he is listed as having No Occupation but age 57. In the 1870 census he is listed as age 59 (he only aged 2 years in 10 years...this is normal for Indian info to change radically like this) his race is - Indian (as is his entire family except his wife who is listed as white, but in 1860 she was listed as Indian), and his occupation is listed as "Physician" born Maine.
His wife Eliza and children Joseph, John and Hannah were in the 1860 census. By the 1870 census they had children, Louisa, George, Charles, Ida and Lillie, ALL Indian (except their mother Eliza) all born in Maine.
If anyone can help me with Who Louis Mitchell's Parents were or where he came from etc. I would be most pleased because I think he may be a younger brother to my 4th grt. grandmother Hannah MITCHELL who was born in 1794 and lived in Brunswick, ME not far from Phippsburg. Also because Louis named a child HANNAH, and because Louis was an Indian doctor, and because my 4th grt. grandmother had a son who also became an Indian doctor.I believe there is a family connection here somewhere. Thank You.
