Mitchell Cemetery Stone #3
—Legend, a Transplanted Tombstone from Pa, —
This David Mitchell, head of our line of Mitchells in America, born in 1681, probably near Dromore, County Down, N.E. Ireland, settled in SW. Lancaster County, Pa. Drumore Twp. about 1713, and was buried in the Morrison Graveyard, near Chestnut Level Pa. Where W.C. Mitchell, my brother and I, personally found this tablet with other Mitchell graves.
Because the graveyard was being rapidly obliterated, we brought the tablet with us in 1928. David Mitchell’s will, with other legal papers, found in the records of Lancaster County, Pa.,”was duly proven Nov. 21, 1757. “ The children named in this will were Samuel, Jean, Abraham, Margaret, Heleanor, Sarah, George and David. Samuel and his wife are buried under this monu- ment. (erected 1947) J,F.Mitchell
