This is a very late reply to your query of 2002, but have just now found it.
I am a descendent of Abraham Mitchell who died in Charles Parish, York Co, VA on 28 November 1696. His wife was Mary and he had four children: James, John, Abraham & Mary who died as a baby. I descend through Abraham. I have researched this family for 40 years and still am no closer to learning the first Abraham's parents than I was 40 years ago.
I would love to exchange information with you. Please let me hear from you.
Pauline Mitchell Via
