  • Notes 
    • Had John MITCHELL been married before Mary CROWTHER?

      Admissions to workhouse states 'from Halifax' although wife Mary's addresses are in Greetland. Halifax used as a 'catch all' term? Virtually no mention of Elland and surrounding areas as a place of abode.

      Appear to be no further records listing inmates at Halifax Workhouse, Gibbet Street. Records are at WYAS Wakefield.

      1906 - grave 576 - burial register (cemetery) shows that, instead of being buried in a pauper's grave, there was another John MITCHELL buried there (presumably before 1906 as this John MITCHELL wouldn't have been able to afford to purchase a grave). The grave was owned by Ann .... (no surname listed). 24 Aug 1864.

      Grave 578 found. John's grave is PROBABLY next but one DOWN the slope. No obvious headstone. Area covered by a large rhodedendrum bush and tree.

      Was this second John MITCHELL the younger one's grandfather?
