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.

Thanks,
Jennifer Mitchell

Jennifer: Your greatgrand fathers name was also Will not William. He was born around 1874, died in 1954. He and his wife are intered at Quarryville Cemetery in Hawkins Co.
His wifes name was Mary Elizabeth "Lide". She was married to a man by the last name of Taylor and had a son, Raymond.Raymond married but there were no heirs born. She passed away in 1964. She had relatives in Texas and I believe also Penn.
You can find both Will and Willie in the 1920's census. (not sure on spelling) records.

There appear to have been at least two -and possibly three- pioneer Mitchell (or Mitchel) families in the area that is now Van Buren County, Tennessee. There is the Mitchell family that settled in the Big Bottom and Hickory Valley area of what is now White County -who can be traced back to 1700's Caswell County, NC; there is the Mark Mitchel family of Bone Cave Mountain and Rocky River (Mitchell Knob is named for this family, I believe.); and there was Jacob Mitchell -who obtained a land grant around 1808 in what is now the Cummingsville community of Van Buren County.

Can the subject William Mitchell be connected to one of those pioneer Mitchell (or mitchel) families?

Thanks for the info. I hope that it will help me. I've searched the 1920's census records and cannot seem to find Will or Willie. Can you e-mail me a copy of the census that they are on. Is it the VanBuren Co. or Hawkins Co. census?
There are so many Will, Willie, & William Mitchell's out there.
Again, thanks for the help.
