My gg-grandmother was Mary Ann Mitcham. I am hoping to find some info on her background. The only info I have on her is that she was born 6/17/1827 and died 6/26/1898 (per tombstone). She married William Barnes on Nov 5, 1854, in Troup Co, GA (found marriage certificate in GA Archives). Census records indicate she was born in Georgia. There are many posts regarding Elijah Mitcham and his ancestors but it doesn't appear she was his descendent. Did Elijah have brothers that could have been her father? Mary Ann and her husband eventually lived in Charlotte, NC where they died and are buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
