1845 - John Mitchell Dies

There are a lot of John Mitchell's (I think i counted 8) in the 1840 census in Maryland, so I can't be sure this is the right one. Other researchers list June 1845 as John's date of death, but I have no proof... other than he appears to have died before the 1850 census.

It's interesting to note that on the exact same page as John Mitchell's funeral listing, a John Mitchell is listed as to participate in the funeral procession for Andrew Jackson - 

1846 - Son Thomas Mitchell is born
If John died in 1845, and Thomas is 3 in the 1850 census, Thomas must have been born in 1846. 

1850 - 

The 1850 Census for Baltimore , Maryland shows Ellen McLaughlin kept a boarding house, she was 67 years of age and living with her were:

 W.S. Stewart, 49 years of age Iron Worker

Margaret Ellen Mitchell's first husband was named John Orem, by her second husband she had the following children:
Mary Jane, Margaret Josephine, John, Clara Louisa and Thomas

1860
Daughter Clara Marries Albert Simms

1866
There is a Mrs Margaret Mitchell in the tax records:
Name:Mrs Margaret Mitchell
Tax Year:1866
State:Maryland, USA

but I'm not convinced this is "our" Margaret.  Note the Reverand Mitchell right below her? Are they connected?



Research:
This family is elusive. I can find almost no records!  No find a grave, no death records, no conclusive census material... Most of what is here is conjecture, based on ancestry.com trees that are also unsourced.  I need records! :-)
