I am looking for info on the family of Etta Y Phenix who was believed to be born Oct 22, 1845 possibly in Ireland which is concluded from here death certificate. Also her father is listed on it as Cyrus Phynex, minister, from Ireland. Family rumor is she came over to America with her father while she was a teenager or younger. She married Amansel A Mitchell which is listed on the mormon site as Feb 3, 1872 Kennebec, Maine (Batch #M520942 Source Call #0011315). They had two Children: Alvin Watson Mitchell (born Aug 8, 1876, Lewiston, Maine),(my gggrandfather) and a daughter Ruby Mitchell who married a Rancourt. She was the first female police matron of Lewiston, Maine. She also helped start and run a home for homeless children and found many children homes to stay. (Source Lewiston Evening Journal, June 3, 1930 Obit) She died June 3, 1930. I am desperate to find her parents. Little is known about them other than what was listed on her death certificate. I have lots of info one the family line to share. Thank you!
