This is my first post to the message boards here, so please forgive any goofs in etiquette. I'm hoping to find info on Elam and Hattie Mitchell, buried in Laurel. (Hickory Grove). Elam did have a first wife and I can't find her name, although he lived with his grandchildren by her for awhile near the end of his life. (Herbert Lee was his grandson). He married Hattie and had three children, daughter Martha Dale was my grandmother. Elam was a carpenter. I wish I was closer so I could go through the microfilm, but if any of you have suggestions or knowledge, I'd appreciate anything.
I've tried a variety of broader searches on Ancestry and I have found some city directories and some census info, as well as a land grant, but I can't find anything that goes back farther or even names to hunt on.
Thank you so much in advance.
