John Mitchell & Hannah Blake

6- great – grandparents of R A Holloman III

John Mitchell bef 1700 – 1739 | his parents
& Hannah Blake | her parents
of Bertie County, NC


This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!


Hannah was the daughter of Mary Sessoms and William Blake and granddaughter of Nicholas Sessoms,
