  1. I am a decendent of George Mitchell, and am trying to track him down in Ireland. Do you have any other info?
    Please contact me at


  2. I am also a descendent! Does the line go back any further?

  3. Unfortunately, I have no other information (yet) on this line.

  4. I could be a relative of George Mitchell but I wonder if Eliz. Pennington died around 1726 because a George Mitchell married Elizabeth Bye in 1730- is this the same George, or different?
    I am related to a Joseph Mitchel who signed William Mitchell's will and bought land for his widow Elizabeth Harmer. Joseph could have been William's brother or cousin.
    William joined the society of Friends before he married Elizabeth Harmer, as Joseph Mitchell joined Abington Meeting just before marrying Mary Knight in 1949 (at her home Buckingham Meeting).

    1. Would love to know your sources. As to Elizabeth Bye, I've never heard the name until now. The Joseph you mentioned does sound like a relative and opens up a new road. Thank you for your comments.

  5. I'm going crazy with George. Who is his father? It can't be Henry Mitchell who died on the ship in 1699. People, how do we find him. Anyone in Ireland, maybe Ulster, who knows anyone? My name is Debbie Green, Help!!!!
