Happy New Year. I am doing research on my great grandmother's family. She was born to Andrew Mitchell and Sophia Fairbanks of HALIFAX NOVA SCOTIA in 1859. Andrew Mitchell is described as a Merchant who died in 1871. I don't have a lot of other information on Andrew other than his parents are listed as George and Ann on the death registration book.
My GG Grandmother Janet Lawson Mitchell was born in Lanark County Ontario in 1857. Her father James Mitchell was born in Lanark County in 1829. His father John Mitchell was born in Scotland about 1786 and arrived in Canada sometime before 1823. I believe he was one of the Lanark Society Settlers. I would love to learn about the family pre-Canada.
