Eliza Jane Mitchell was daughter of Columbus W. Mitchell & his wife Lucinda Emiline Davis (see Hancock Co., MS 1850 Census for whole family) Columbus W. Mitchell was son of George Andrew Mitchell and his wife Phoebe Ann Miller. James J. Mitchell was son of John Mitchell and Nancy Burge (see also 1850 Hancock Co., MS Census for this family) Don't know John Mitchell's parents but I'll bet hes a cousin of some sort to Eliza Jane because there are several instances of cousin marriages in the Mitchells. There were more than one John Mitchell in Hancock Co.,MS and St. Tammany Parish,LA between 1800-1860. Nancy Burge was the daughter of Drury Burge and Sarah Sally Roberts. Two of Nancy's brothers Benjamin & James Burge are also listed living with the Mitchells on the 1850 Census as they were orphans by that time. Drury Burge was a brother to Christopher & George Washington Burge. Hope this helps.
