Charles Mitchell was born in Pennsylvania, February 26, 1797. His father was Charles Mitchell, and his mother was Jane (Robinson Mitchell. Charles Mitchell, senior, was twice married, and had, by his first wife, three more children: Jane, Elizabeth and Andrew. The later went to New Orleans when a young man, and the last intelligence from him was that he had joined the army under General Jackson. The children by the second wife were John, Sarah, Charles, William, Hugh, Thomas and David. In 1815 Charles Mitchell and his family emigrated to Ohio, and settled where his son, Charles, now lives, a half mile north of Dublin, in Washington township, where he bought a large tract of land. He died in March 1823, and by will devised his property to his wife and children, giving each one hundred and fifty acres of land, with the exception of his wife and his sons, Charles and William, to whom he gave three hundred acres of land, on condition that they pay his debts, which amounted to a considerate sum. A very short time after his death, his sons, Charles and William, started down the Scioto river with a boat load of flour, port, potatoes and other produce, Their destination being New Orleans. On their arrival at that city, they found the market supplied with produce, and in consequence they received but about enough to clear the expense they had been at in the trip. (Other incidents connected with the early settlement of this family will be found in the history of Washington township).
