Thank you Forfarian, yes I have that.  I was replying to Mitchell's thread asking if anyone had family names in the Mortlach area.  Charles and Clementine died in Mortlach.  But thanks again.

Hi grammatj8,

I'd read your post about Charles and Clementina but haven't come across your names I'm afraid. My Mitchell's originated in Forgue/ Drumlade in the 1790's, moved to Glass then to Mortlach by 1872 where John Mitchell was born, son of William Mitchell and Anne Archibald. His older siblings were born in Glass.
I'll keep your names in mind though when I'm searching  :)

Have you looked at the Moray Archive site? http://libindx.moray.gov.uk/mainmenu.asp
If you do a people search, there is a result for Charles...not much info but might be worth asking for the newspaper clip.
