I've "rescued" an old photograph of George, Anna, and Leonard MITCHELL which was taken at the Smith Studio in Chicago, IL. The photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900's with the couple in their 30's or 40's and the young boy about 8 years old at the time. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding this MITCHELL Family:
George Grant MITCHELL was b. 1 Feb 1865 in Warren, IA to parents Julius C. MITCHELL (1819-1875) and Lavina CRITESER (1832-1889). George was one of 10 children born to this couple including, Eliza Jane; William Henry "Bud"; Robert John; Francis Marion "Frank"; Jacob Alexander; Nancy A.; George Grant; Oliver Theodore; Selina Belle; and Edward Isaac MITCHELL, all born between 1852 and 1871.
George married Anna Mae or May "Annie" HAUSER (b. 30 May 1868 in Indiana) and they had two children including son Leonard Ralph MITCHELL (1894-1940) and a daughter Susanna MITCHELL (b. 1895). George died 23 May 1938 in Nevada, MO. His wife Anna was the daughter of Benjamin Franklin HAUSER (1839-1922) and Louisa Jane WRIGHT (1842-1927).
Anna was one of 6 children born to this couple including, Alice Elizabeth; George Elsworth; Anna May or Mae; Arthur Benjamin; Evelyn Louisa; and Daisy HAUSER, all born between 1861 and 1877.
I am hoping to be able to return the photograph to this family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.
