Re: [SC] Isiah Mitchell
In Response To: [SC] Isiah Mitchell ()
The 1920 federal census includes "Isiah Mitchell, male, black, 49, laborer," a married household head living in Charleston's 11th Ward with several family members (with various surnames) including a cousin Anna, brother F____, children Joseph, Annabell, and Mary E. In that year's census there were also two black men in Charleston named "Isaiah Mitchell" and two black women named "Emma Mitchell," including one living in 11th Ward: "Emma Mitchell, female, black, 34, dressmaker." She's listed as a single head of household; but she and other members of her household are crossed out on the census form.
If you are looking for an individual whose birthdate you don't know, it would help to post the information you do have for his wife and children. That will help to narrow down which "Isiah" or "Isaiah" is the one you are seeking.
I have Mitchell ancestors who were brought as slaves from South Carolina to Texas around 1856-60. However, the people you mentioned are not familiar to me.
Good luck with your search.
