George Mitchell family of Dundee * Completed *
« on: Saturday 12 March 11 10:53 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to locate some ancestors - George Mitchelll and his wife Elizabeth Wallace.
They were married at Dundee on 20 Dec 1867.
The marriage certificate states his parents were-  Alexander Mitchell and Jane Hay and her Parents were George Wallace and Agnes Wilkie.
I believe they had a large family , unfortunately I can only find a few of the names of the children  and nothing else -
the few children that I have found and believe are theirs  are - George Wallace Mitchell (b 1868), James Stratton Mitchell (b 1870),
Alexander Kay Mitchell (b 1872), Agnes Mitchell (b 1880), and Faraday Wallace Mitchell (B 1883).
Any help would be appreciated.  Regards - Luc.

Hi EV,

Thanks that great - yes George Mitchell was a Butchers Assistant  according to his marriage certificate

His daughter Agnes married my Great Uncle  - but I have been banging my head against the wall  trying to find out more about George and his children - so your  help really is appreciated- thanks again - Luc.

Hi EV,

Where did you find the info about George being a butcher by trade and about Elizabeth and William, I have just looked at the igi and did not find it there -?

I believe one of the Mitchell daughters married a man called Macready - who later had a daughter called Agnes Mitchell Macready according to an old post card my mother had.

Regards- Luc.
