Cynthia Mitchell and Sam Mitchell are my great-grandparents. My grandmother was your grandfathers sister, Della. Cynthia's name has been spelled differently on census reports, one spelling is Scynthia, Or Synthia. From what I gather, Scynthia was born in 1885, she married Sam in 1898. Sam's name has also been spelled differently, in one census report it was spelled Samuell. From the stories my grandmother told, Scynthia passed away in 1919, the family didn't have a funeral for Scynthia, they buried her on the home front, and burned down the house after she died. Sam remarried Martha a week after Scynthia's death. Of course these were stories passed down over the years, and my grandmother was a young girl when her mother died, so this may not be factual. We have relatives still living in Clay County who may know more of the history. Janie Hoskins being one of these relatives.
