Notes for JAMES PAYNE MITCHELL
The James P. Mitchell House and Farmstead was posted to the National Register of Historic Places on November 19, 1997. Click here to view a copy of the registration form, which also contains some useful information such as the fact that JAMES had a second wife named ANN born 1804/05 in Kentucky. ANN J. is listed on the 1870 census but the copy is very hard to read. It also states that he and ANN only had one son, ROBERT H.C. MITCHELL. However, ROBERT was born in 1829 and to my knowledge was a son of SARAH. Since SARAH died six years before JAMES, he couldn't have mentioned her in his will which means he had a second wife named ANN. Also, he did have three other sons, JOHN D., JAMES H. and LEWIS. They died before he did and that's probably why ROBERT is mentioned as the only son.

Much thanks to Charlotte McConaha for helping me sort out the children of Sarah and James.

Additional Notes for JAMES PAYNE MITCHELL
One of MITCHELL'S daughters was married to JOHN VANDERPOOL SMITH as his obit in 1897 mentions a first wife being the daughter of JAMES P. MITCHELL. The obit doesn't name the daughter and only mentions that she preceded her husband in death. The only possibilities I can see as being the first wife of JOHN VANDERPOOL SMITH would be KEZIAH, EMILY or MARTHA. I'm just not sure which daughter it would be.
