Brick wall on an Amelia Lessie McLemore Mitchell
Posted by: D Kelly (ID *****0945) Date: July 22, 2009 at 20:30:46

My cousin has asked for my help and I am stumbling. Her father who recently passed was born in Mississippi. His mother's name was (as listed on his death record) Amelia Lessie McLemore. His father was James Herman Mitchell. I located her on old census traces and she's listed in 3 different ways, but I know this is her: 1910 she's Celeste Age 5, then 1920 she's Celestian age 14, then 1930 she's Leslie Mitchell (married)age 23, mother of infant son (my cousin's dad, my uncle). My cousin believes she died before my uncle was a teen and James Herman remarried. Yet, I can find no trace of her marriage record (sometime in the 1920's we guess), death, burial plot or even one genealogy record on her post-marriage. We believe she was still around Forrest County when she passed away, but it's possible she was somewhere else when she died.
Any help would be graciously appreciated. Thank you.
