Hi Linda! My mother, Faye Mitchell (Dolan) is Alby's cousin. She says they always called him Alby not Alba. She also knows Evelyn and says Evelyn would remember her, and that Alby and Evelyn had very good-looking boys!
I am trying to find something "official" that will document the link/connect between John Mitchell and his father, Job Mitchell, but I'm not having any luck. I'd love any info you would be willing to share.
