From Joe Stout:Thanks so much for your information.There is something very confusing
about the Mitchell's of Pittsylvania county, VA.Steve Smoot has these
family's on his FTM website.I believe he must have obtained the
informtion on my James A. Mitchell from my data and connected them to Sarah
Philpott and James Mitchell.However, someone had informed me a year or so
ago, that their son James A. Mitchell died on the family farm in
Pittsylvania county.There is a James A. Mitchell on the 1850 census in
that county and the age is within 1 or 2 years of Sarah's husband.
My James A. migrated to Carroll/Weakley county TN in 1845.An interesting
fact you mention below is the Allen name being prominant in these families.
I have a picture of James A. Mitchell's son's family which was made around
1898.This picture was made in Carroll county TN and my grandmother is in
the picture at about 18 yrs. of age.Also in the picture is Jim A. Allen,
Willie Allen, Ruby Allen, Edna Allen, Jessie Allen along with my
grandmother's brothers and sisters.
This would certainly indicate that these families seem to tie together.
