    Also, under the children of John and Margaret Porter Mitchell, their
    daughter Mary Jane should be listed. Whoever transcribed the will
    to type, put a comma between Mary and Jane, when it should have
    been typed as just Mary Jane. She married Andrew McClure and should
    be linked to this Mitchell Family.

    John MITCHELL(18) was born about 1720. Members of this Mitchell family were influential in the Timber Ridge Presbyterian Church, now known as the Old Stone Church near Lexington, Virginia.

    In 1955 some of their descendants placed two plaques in this church as memorials to their forbears. One reads, in part, "In honor and love of John Mitchell and Margaret Porter Mitchell, his wife (1730-1795), daughter of William and Jean Porter. Also Scotch-Irish and early settlers in Rockbridge County. They inhabited, increased, and developed the estates on Buffalo and James and reared to maturity a family of three sons and three daughters. Members of Old Oxford Presbyterian Church." The Old Oxford Church is no longer in existence. The other plaque honors the father and mother of John Mitchell, Jr. who had come from Scotland by way of Ireland and had settled in the area in 1737.

    Margaret and John had six known children, all born probably in Rockbridge County, Virginia. They were:

    1. John Mitchell (III) who married Agnes ... before 1783 and migrated to South Carolina that same year. 2. Margaret Mitchell. 3. William Mitchell, who married Susanna ... before 1791 and migrated to Kentucky. 4. Mary Jane Mitchell, who married Andrew McClure in June, 1789 and migrated to Kentucky. 5. Thomas Mitchell who married Rachel Crawford in February, 1799 and migrated to Kentucky. 6. Hannah Mitchell.


    John Mitchell was married to Margaret PORTER in 1755 in Augusta Co, VA.(405)
    Margaret Porter was the d/o William Porter Sr. and Gean Mackey Porter.
