Thanks for your reply. I am trying to find information on my gggrandmother whom was named Martha Mitchel. She is supposed to have married a Jesse Adams but we are having trouble locating him. We are unsure who her parents are but we did find a Jesse Adams that married a Mary Mitchell in the 1860's and we are trying to decipher whether this is the same Martha. (her name may have been Mary Martha Mitchell) We are suspecting that if this is correct that her father is Stephen Mitchell married to a Kitsey Mitchell. I have found them on Wayne and Johnston County Census records. We still have more research to do to exclude this Mary Mitchell or not. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated and if I have anything you may want, just let me know. I have several Mitchell's from Wayne County, One of them being Stephen Mitchell, (spelled Mitchele) Henry Mitchell,William Mitchell,Rhubin Mitchell, Morris Mitchell and Curtis Mitchell. (all on Wayne County 1850 census). They must be kin because they lived next door to each other Please see what you have and see if we can find Martha Mitchell. Thank you so much.
