In Reply to: Files - Mitchell's - Ellis Co, Tx 1870's by Pauline Mitchell Pierce of 381

I found where Myrah Mitchell was born on 31,January,1842 in Dyer County, Tennessee, and died on 2,May, 1923 in Files Valley, Hill County, Texas. She married first to Jeremiah Files in 1862, and second to James Newman. Her parents I only have listed as Mr. and Mrs. William Mitchell. The Mitchell's aparently bought land and a mill from Jack Stubblefield in Files Valley, Hill County, Tx. In the 1870 census for Hill County, Jeremiah and Mira Files are listed. Jeremiah is 63, Mira is 26, they have three children listed, Lee a daughter of 7, Jeremiah a son of 5, and Samuel M. a son of 3.
I am a decendant of William Baskin Files, Jeremiah's brother. If I can help you anymore, just ask and I'll try.
