Biography

Solomon Mitchell's birth location is recorded as being in Great Wishford as listed in his death record[1] see Research notes below, "Parish records the baptism of a solomon Mitchell at Great Wishford, 4 May 1806, his parents being Henry and Elizabeth mitchell."

Name Solomon Mitchel
Residence Place Great Wishford, Wiltshire, England
Gender Male
Christening Date 04 May 1806
Christening Date (Original) 04 May 1806
Christening Place Great Wishford, Wiltshire, England
Father's Name Henry Mitchel
Mother's Name Elizabeth[2]

There is a record for a Solomon Mitchell's christening, this christening took place 48 miles from the birth place of this Solomon Mitchell and may infer two different Solomon Mitchell's:

Christening
30 September 1808
Alton, Hampshire, England[3]

He and his wife Hannah were married the 28th of September, 1828 in Newton, South Wiltshire.[4]

The 1850 census has him born in England and currently at age 43 living in Sheffield, Caledonia, Vermont and working as a farmer. (I couldn't attach this one to the Ancestry.com page for some reason).[5]

In 1860, 53 year old Solomon is listed with his wife and children as living in Sheffield, Caledonia, Vermont:

Solomon Mitchel Male 53 England
Hannah Mitchel Female 52 England
Henry Mitchel Male 13 Vermont
Leonard Mitchel Male 10 Vermont
Wesley Mitchel Male 7 Vermont
Ellen Mitchel Female 15 Vermont[6]

Solomon served in the Union Army, as a Private in the Vermont 10th Regiment, Vermont Infantry, Company A.[7] He is listed in the US General Index to Pensions for his service.[8]

The 1870 census was transcribed as "Salena" Mitchell but clearly says Solomon (62) in Sheffield, Caledonia, Vermont.

The 1880 census has "Soliman" Mitchell (74) living in Sheffield, Caledonia, Vermont and working as a farmer with Hannah (71) and Leondard N. (24)?[9]

He was an 85 year old farmer who died from Pneumonia on 08 Jan 1892.[10] see Research notes below, "Parish records the baptism of a solomon Mitchell at Great Wishford, 4 May 1806, his parents being Henry and Elizabeth mitchell." He is listed in the Find A Grave Database, Find A Grave: Memorial #176331087 Sutton Village Cemetery, Sutton, Caledonia County, Vermont, USA. An Obituary is posted to the memorial which states he and his wife both died of pneumonia just 3 days apart.

Solomon Appears in the records for some of his children, Mary Esther Nutt's marriage [11] death, [12] for son George [13], for Anne [14], for William [15], Thomas Mtichell [16] for Sarah [17]

Research Notes

PM to Chris Whitten, August 11, 2018 from Maureen Whithey, regarding birth location:

"I am the online-parish clerk for Great Wishford (Great Wishford is a village and civil parish in the Wylye Valley in Wiltshire, England), part of the Wiltshire OPC project, and I think that Solomon Mitchell was baptised in Great Wishford, which is the village next to South Newton. ( not in Alton, Hampshire)

Parish records the baptism of a solomon Mitchell at Great Wishford, 4 may 1806, his parents being Henry and Elizabeth mitchell. Hannah was baptised at south Newton a year later, July 27 1807, parents, lazarus and Sarah west.

They must have emigrated to Vermont from England some time after 1836, as ther is a baptism of three of their children at Great Wishford , Sarah the last one being baptised October 1836.

He was in the civil war, source: St. Albans Daily Messenger Jan. 21, 1892 Solomon Mitchell, of Sutton, died January 8, aged 85 years. Mr. Mitchell was a veteran of the civil war, having enlisted at the age of 56 and served until discharged because of disability for which he drew a pension.

Solomon Mitchell and his wife Hannah West, were buried in the village cemetery, at Sutton Vermont. and there is a photo of their grave stone . you will find it if you search his name and vermont. Regards maureen Withey
