Surnames: Mitchell
I am looking for relatives of James Mitchell, Charles Mitchell and Janet Mitchell. These 3 people stayed in Scotland after they were born and their brothers Peter, William, John, and Alexander came to Ontario Canada. Their parents were Peter Mitchell and Janet Kemp. James was born in 1830, Charles 1839, and Janet either 1842, or 1847. Any help would be appreciated. As the ones that stayed in Scotland are the ones I am missing.
