William Mitchell & First Wife

5- great – grandparents of R A Holloman III

William Mitchell ca 1725 – 1796 | his parents
& first wife | her parents
& ca 1763 Lavinia Early ca 1747 – bef 1796 | her parents
& Elizabeth [relict] d aft 1796 | her parents
of Bertie County, NC

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

This William Mitchell married estimated 1763 Lavinia Early, the daughter of James Early who left a will in Bertie County in 1786 and his wife Grace Perry, the daughter of John Perry [died Bertie County 1760] and his wife Sarah Walton.

This would mean an earlier wife [possibly a Powell?] who was the mother of Cader Mitchell born ca 1752/53.

This William Mitchell was a son of the John Mitchell who died in Bertie County in 1739 with Hannah Mitchell his administrator. [presumed to be his wife]

When William wrote his will his wife’s name was Elizabeth.
