MITCHELL FAMILY CEMETERY

Located in Township 14 Rane 13, NE 1/4 of Section 5, on a wooded hill 1/2 mile east of Route 100, and 1/4 mile north of the new I-36. This land was purchased by Edward Mitchell in 1837.

A 6′ obelisk has names on four sides:

Mary E. Died 6 June 1850 23 Yr 6 Mo Wife of J.G.
Ann E. Died 6 Feb 1866 40 Yr 8 Mo Wife of James E. Mitchell

Another obelisk was lying on its side, too heavy to turn over, so only 3 sides were read. And there was one other stone.

Julia Died 23 Jan 1845 10 Mo
