I was browsing and found this message. My great grandmother also lived with the Dennis Mitchell household as a teacher for his children. My great grandm was Maude Adrian Witt Caple. She told me it was a common practice for the teacher to live with families then if there was no school. Later Ol Captain Mitchell built her a one room school house. Maude was born in 1884. This was later thatn Sarah but maybe Sarah was an earlier teacher. I am told Dennis Mitchell had several wives.
Please let me know if we are of the same Caples. I can be reached at
