Thanks, Eric

Anyone have an obit. for her husband Irvin Mitchell? I'm trying to connect his roots.

There was a Thomas Irvin Mitchell with son Irvin Reid Mitchell (b. 1898) in Amherst, which is Cumberland County, however I'm pretty sure this was a different family completely.

Wouldn't mind being shown otherwise!
