Looking for information on my great-great-grandfather, Samuel Mitchell and his brother, David.
I'm interested in knowing dates of birth, marriages, deaths, parents, and siblings.
Samuel was a captain of a steamboat; perhaps the first to operate steamboat between Albany and Camanche.
Samuel was the father of my great-grandmother, May Mitchell who married J.H. Clark.
Thanks for any/all help!

Denise,
Yes, this is my Samuel Mitchell. Evaline was his wife, and their daughter, May was my greatgrandmother. I do have access to Ancestry.com, but still getting my feet wet there.
Thank you so much for all this helpful information!
