Notes for David Mitchell:
DARreference # 57707
David and Margaret came from Ireland (Northern Ireland, Ulster Province, probably Armagh County) to America about 1763. This family were "Covenanters"---Cora Lou Small records
8/18/92 According to the LDS records using the 1737 birthdate for David Mitchell, his father was from Ireland, mother from Delaware and they had several children who were born in Pennsylvania. This, of course, casts doubt on the notion that David and Margaret were born in Ireland. This will be a future problem to resolve. LDS reference # AF89-101577 [Submitter of information is Carolyn Salas, 3400 W. Midvalley Rd., Cedar City, UT 84720.]
