In concert with two other cousins, we have been able todocument fairly solidlyour Mitchell ancestors for the past 400 years in America.
Two of my Mitchell male cousins in Mitchell yDNA Study are listed as Haplogroup I, Group 09.
We would like to locate a descendant of our gggggreat gf James Mitchell's brother, Richard Mitchell 1746-1821.
The latter Richard Mitchell b abt. 1746 d 30 Mar 1821, was brother/executor of will for the latter James, who d at age 31.
This Richard Mitchell is the ancestor of Henry Clarence ("Clarys") Mitchell 1869-1945 (married Emma Jesse Shehigh 1893-1946).
According to the 1930 census, children were Manera M. b 1912 (not shown in this census); Louise Margret 1914; Elizabeth Edmonds 1816; Harrit C. 1920; H. Clarence 1923; Joseph S. 1926; & Amy H. Mitchell b 1928.
The 1940 census of Wicomico, Northumberland Co., VA. H Clarence Mitchell 54(?"Clarys") ; Emma S Mitchell 38; Louise M Mitchell 16;Elizabeth E Mitchell 14;H Clarnce Mitchell 7; Joseph S Mitchell 4;Amy H Mitchell 2 .
Would like to make a contact with a male (Mitchell name)descendant to participate in the yDNA Study to prove their connection to this family. Currently three cousins descendants of the above James have participating in the Mitchell yDNA Study. We are identified as "Haplogroup I, Group 09." (We are not related to the hundreds of other Mitchell's in the Study.)
