I am searching for information on William Mitchell, i.e., dob, parents name, dod, etc. All the information that I have is that he was born in VanBuren Co., TN and later moved to Hawkins Co., TN, where his son, Willie Carter Mitchell was born on October 11, 1917. I do not know who William married. However, on Willie's death certificate it lists his father as William Mitchell and mother unknown.
We have been told by my father-in-law that Willie's mother died during childbirth and that his father, William remarried and he was raised by his step-mother. I was told by someone what her name was, but I didn't write it down. All I can remember is that William's 2nd wife's name was "Lide" I think it was short for Elizabeth.
Another family researcher has found pictures of William and in doing so found some pictures of a couple of girls one with the last name of Ingle (we believe that this could've been Willie's mother and Williams 1st wife) but we do not know for sure. It is also another possiblity that her maiden name couldv'e been Carter. (It was common practice to give a child the mother's maiden name as a middle name)
If any one can help, it would be much appreciated. William is my brick wall.
