Jennet Mitchell was PROBABLY the wife of James B. Mitchell, my great-great uncle. He was married five times, died in Appanoose County, and buried in Oakland Cemetery in Centerville. During the 1880 census of White Breast in Lucas County, Iowa, James Mitchell, age 39, an engineer and born in Scotland, was married to Jennie, 28, born in Maryland of Scots parents. His son "James A. Mitchell," age 4, lived with them. The son had been born in Scotland, so he must not have been a son to James' wife shown in this census. Jennet died in 1881 and was buried next to Jennet Naismith in Fry Hill,
My direct branch of the Mitchell family left Old Monkland and settled in Lucas in the 1880s.
James' parents were Alexander Mitchell (1817-1877 and d. in Scotland) and Elizabeth Black (about 1820 - 1855). Alexander's mother was a Simpson.
I cannot sort out all the Mitchells in the coal mines of Lucas County. Many were undoubtedly related two or three ways. The town of Lucas remains with many buildings as they were in 1900.
