Sherrie Mitchell Native Virginian

As a child I constantly asked my Grandparents where we came from. The answer from both Grandmothers was "I don't know Honey, we've just always been here..."

100% of my lineage is in Bedford County Virginia around Rev War timeframe. Lots of Endogamy in the chart! AND, lots of research in the effort. I especially love doing VA courthouse research, love the tiny scraps of paper we can handle and the original documents. Signatures of my ancestors I collect, it draws them closer.

As a child our family attended our Mitchell and Martin reunions every year. I love the cemetery at Staunton Baptist Church in Huddleston, VA. I would talk with the WWI vets who had shaking hands, "shell shock" Mom said. My brother and I would go look at the really old stones in the cemetery, glad we did because many are no longer readable. There were 2 out houses and we met in the tiny original chapel which we use to this day for our Martin reunion. Our ancestors Jordan and Keziah Musgrove Martin supplied the land for the church years ago. Their photo hangs in the fellowship hall beside a copy of the original deed which states that if that property is ever not a Baptist church, the property reverts to heirs. We love that church!


Maternal relationship is confirmed by a Family Finder test match between Sherrie Mitchell and her mother Shirlie (Musgrove) Mitchell. Their MRCAs are George Herman Musgrove and Lola Johnson, Predicted relationship from FTDNA: Mother/Daughter based on sharing cM 3384 segments.

PS...I'm working on the endogamy aspect which is HUGE. Beginning at GGG and quite complex.

I don't manage the Jamestowne checklist. But anybody is free to edit it so far as I'm concerned.

Thanks for the tip about the Englishes.

Hi Sherrie,

When working suggestion list and the spelling of a name is correct, you need to mark it as a False Suggestion to get rid of the error.
