SEARCHING for : SYMON MITCHELL a New England Mitchell???
I Have Symon* Mitchell**
(*Simon, Semon) [**Mitchel, Mithol, Michall, Mitchol]
Family stories have him born at Shoreham. We "Assume" New Shoreham, Newport RI.
I only have a picture of his headstone, in East Greenwich Cemetery in E.G. Rhode Island.It states his name as:
Died01 March 1869
age on the stone has him at age 61.
I'm searching from 1801 to 1808 as Simon's Birth year.
Interred next to him is his first wife, Nancy Rose Died 13 Sep 1853 age 43 years, in East Greenwich. Found her Death record. ( but why is there no death record to be found for Simon?)
Found some records at Block Island town hall with Symon, Nancy and a Hezekiah Mitchell. Does not state a relation between any on the record.
In East Greenwich town hall found a record of a burial plot purchase with Simon and a Silas Mitchell. Also fond a marriage record and death record for Silas Mitchell. Could Silas and Simon be related in some way??
Also found a land evidence record in 1855 of Symon transferring Land to an Oliver H.P.Rose (a relative of his1st wife, Nancy's?)Oliver then transferred a life lease to Simon's 2nd wife, Margaret. On the same day, also transferred the land to Simon's two minor son's, George W. and Ezekiel Mitchell.
I did go to the RI State Archives... There is No record of Simon's Birth, Marriage or Death in RI.
Where, Oh, Where can Simon be found???
Instead of New Shoreham RI....
could it just be a Shoreham in another state???
We've always Just "Assumed" it was "New" Shoreham.
If any one can help me Find My Symon Mitchell,
it would be greatly appreciated.
Perhaps you came across him in searching for your Simon???
