Peter Mitchell, 1815
- Hello Listers!
I am new to this list and posting for the first time. My elusive
Mitchell family came from Woodside, Aberdeen and immigrated to the US in
Peter Mitchell (unknown parents) born October 4, 1815. His obituary
notice (he died on April 15, 1881, Wisconsin State, USA) says that he was
' of Woodside, Aberdeen, Scotland '. I have not been able to confirm his
birth on the IGI or through the ANESFHS. Somone at the Historical
Society kindly volunteered to look for Peter through his birth date but
it was not a successful search.
Peter had a sister named Mary who was living in Aberdeen for the 1881
census and is listed as Mary Graham, widow, aged 64 and born in the
village of Garmond. Unknown date of birth/death for Mary Mitchell
Graham. At one point she was living in tenement housing on Blackfriar's
Street in Aberdeen and she had a son who worked at Broadford Works in
