Kay, I may be reached at email@example.com
and will be pleased to share what little Mitchell information that I have. I would be quite surprised if they were not the same family. Nancy Jane Mitchell who married Henry T. Fortenberry was I belive the daughter of Asa Mitchell and Elizabeth.
I will be making a trip to the Spartanburg area in a couple of weeks and I hope to be able to find additional information on these families. I am particularly interested in cemeteries and where some of those who didn't migrate to Alabama are buried.
Look forward to hearing from you.
