I have points to this family as the one I'm looking for. However, this

Mitchel (only one "L" and dropped the "a").

one of my James W. Mitchell's grandson's name is Frederick and his
great grandson's name is Frederick Mitchell. Also, the wife's name and

Mary Ann Watson said in CW Pension Application she was 60 yrs old in
1910 (could be 1900, it has a 0 with a 1 over the 0) ; places her
birth 1850, but Death Certificate states date of birth March 5, 1855.
I believe she was right (1850) cause this would make her 15 yrs old
when married, instead of 10 yrs old. On the other hand, her death
certificate states "age, 83 yrs 10 months 1 day" (1855).
1880 Census has age 29 instead of 30
_ _ The Mitchell surname has been spelled several ways:
Mitchel, Mitchell, Mitchael, Michael.
Started with 46th Georgia Infantry, Company A with Peyton J.
Colquitt as Colonel, Charleston, SC. Transferred to Company I 32nd
Georgia and went to Virginia under Capt. Jim Lewis. His request for
Confederate Pension was granted in 1900.
He states he has lived in Cooke County, TX 19 yrs. This would mean
he moved here in 1881.
The following was supplied to me by Martha Cook Callaway: "James W.
was married to Martha Jane Reed. The family moved to Mississippi
about 1870. They can be found on the Prentiss County, Census for
1870. The census shows James W.'s birthplace as Tennessee. Martha
Jane Reed was born in Lawrence County, AL. James W. and his wife
Martha Jane, as well as their son, Phillip B., all died in
Booneville, Prentice County, MS. Henry Clay Mitchell died in
Fannin County, Texas. Annie Martin Mitchell died in Montague
County, Texas, and my notes only show Texas for the death place of
James Wiley Mitchell."
I don't believe this is the same line of my Mitchells even though
there are a lot of similarities. However, I have not confirmed
