Notes for WILLIAM MITCHELL:

From "Along the North Shore: A Social History of Township 11, Prince Edward Island, 1765-1982" by J. Clinton Morrison:

William MITCHELL (1787-1880) and his wife, Mary (died in 1865), emigrated from near Stradbally, Queens [now Laoighis], Ireland, probably on "The Brig" which sailed from Dublin to Charlottetown on July 26, 1823. This may have been the same vessel which brought the Bulgers, Kellys, Kilbrides, Lynchs and others to Lot 11. William and Mary Mitchell resided in Lot 11 for most of their lives after immigrating. They may have lived in the Vernon River area of Lots 49 and 50 for awhile after their arrival on the Island. William was a farmer and by 1861 he and Mary were apparently residing with their daughter, Bridget, and son-in-law, Dennis Kilbride Sr., at Foxley River.

Dear Mr James,

As I am waiting for people to arrive for this noon's 12 o'clock prayer service I decided to look up the info you requested in our parish books that go back to 1905. We do have a notation of Alice Maude Decker Mitchell's burial here at St. James place in our death registry page 4 between Feb3 1928 and May 1929. There is no exact date listed nor any other info other than that she was buried from St. James Parish.

On page 102 Peter Mitchell's death notice is recorded. It notes he lived on Summit St., the same street the Church rectory is on. He died Mar. 11, 1938 and was buried from St. James Mar. 21, 1938. He was 75. There is no record here of Martin Lynch's burial. Perhaps it was at Immaculate Conception Parish, 17 Calais Ave., Calais 04694.

There are no records of what parish they came from in NH.

There is a notation of the baptism of a Margaret Florence Mitchell, daughter of Peter and Maude baptized Aug. 30, 1910. Sponsors were Martin Lynch and Annie McLaire. She married James McClure here on Apr. 18, 1938.

Also, that of Mary Alice Mitchell, daughter of Peter and Maude, baptized May 29, 1908. Sponsors were Martin Lynch and Alphonsina Nolet.

Finally, there is a death notice for Hazel agatha Mitchell of Summit St. She died at 43 years on Oct. 23, 1938 and was buried from here Oct. 25, 1938. If you wish any certificates for any of these dates please let me know and I'll forward them to you.

Christ's Peace,

Fr. Frank Morin, Pastor

E-mail from Dorothy James (RJames5951@aol.com) to David James (JamesDM49@aol.com), 30 Aug 2004:

Hi, David:

This is very exciting. I wondered why nothing could be found but I guess it was not uncommon for people to summarily change their names or the spelling of their names as in Dean and Deane.

I have read quite a bit but printed it out to read more thoroughly later. I was surprised at the date of Alice Maude since I always thought I remembered eating a meal there when I was quite little. I distinctly remember Hazel at that time because she frightened me by making faces and clawing motions. Of course, according to the records she was dead before I was born. It was probably one of the aunts.

You must have been thrilled to finally have a breakthrough in the Decker line. It's a wonder you hadn't given up.

See you this weekend,

Love, Mom

I was reading through a obituary of my great great Grandma and saw that she had two brothers one Emil. She was born in Alpena South Dakota to Frank and Amelia Sidenkranz. She was survived at the time by two brothers, Albert Sidenkranz Pine River Minn. and Emil Sidenkranz Wadena Minn. and she was preceded in death by one brother Carl Sidenkranz. I have just started looking into this side so That is all I know for now. I do hope to find

more out later. Oh, and her name was Mary M. Horn.

Thank you.
