After the war, two of the sons, William and John, moved to Old 96 District of South Carolina with a short stay in Livingston, Ky. By 1777 they were living in Laurens Co. S.C.

Generation Two

12 William2 Mitchell (William Dewitt1 ) born 1751 in Prince George, Virginia; died 1821 in Laurens, South Carolina and is buried at Mt. Bethel Cemetery, Laurens, South Carolina. The children of William Mitchell are cleary established in the Will of his daughter, Susanna Mitchell Mattison. Her Will names all of her brothers and sister, and the list includes my Allen Mitchell. Here are portions of the Will of Susanna Mitchell Mattison filed in Abbeville Courthouse, South Carolina, 1831:

      .... all my just debts to be paid out of my Estate, by William Pyles
           & William Barmore whom I appoint and wish for them to act as my
           Execcutors.

           my Executors.

      3rd. I will and bequeath unto my Brother William Mitchell Five Dollars
           only, Because his needs does not require more.

      4th. The Balance of my Estate, I wish to be Equally divided between
           the rest of my Brothers & Sisters. Namely John Mitchell, Allen
           Mitchell, Macklin Mitchell, Asa Mitchell, Reuben Mitchell, James
           Mitchell, Elizabeth Mitchell, & Patcy Box. And as my Brothers
           Allen, John, Asa, & James are dead, my wish and desire is, that
           their Equal distribution share be Equally divided amongst the
           Lawful heirs of such Deceased respectively ....

      .... In witness whereof I have here unto Set my hand and seal the
           15 day of April one thousand Eight Hundred & Thirty one. Signed

                 George Mattison                      her
                 Chester Kingsley              Susanna X Mattison
                 Benjamin Mattison                   Mark

           Inventory made March 7, 1834 by, William Mattison, Chester
           Kingsley, Andrew C. Hawthorne

           Sale bill made March 22, 1834.
It is obvious from her Will that four of her brothers had died prior to 1831 (the date the Will was written) and that her sister "Patcy" was married to a Mr. "Box". Another thing that might be suggested is that her brother William was doing well enough financially, that she deamed it unnecessary to leave him anything other than five dollars. And finally, either she did not have any living children or she simply did not want to leave them anything since no children were named. Here are the children of William Mitchell:
121 Susanna3 Mitchell born about 1771; married (James?/Benjamin?/George?) Mattison; died after April 15, 1831 and before March 7, 1834 in Abbeville District, South Carolina.
122 William3 Mitchell born about 1772
123 John3 Mitchell born about 1773; died before 1831; married Lucretia Mattison
124 Allen3 Mitchell born about 1774 in Laurens, South Carolina (or Kentucky?); died 1814 in Laurens, South Carolina; married Drucilla ------.
125 Macklin/McLin3 Mitchell born 1776; married Polly ------; was a resident of Kentucky in 1805 and Laurens, South Carolina in 1800 and 1810.

Generation Three

124 Allen3 Mitchell (William2, William Dewitt1 )born about 1774 in Laurens, South Carolina; died 1814 in Laurens County, South Carolina; married about 1792 in Laurens County, South Carolina to Drucilla -----. The below children were named in a quit claim deed for 100 acres of land in South Carolina, by Drucilla Pringle to her children, dated October 2, 1828, and filed in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama. This 100 acre tract had been purchased by Allen Mitchell in 1794 (the land was sold by the Mitchell children, June 3, 1833). When Allen Mitchell died in 1814, his wife Drucilla was named in probate records. Drucilla subsequently married John Pringle, who died in Laurens County, South Carolina in 1820. Drucilla after arriving in Alabama married third John Nabors. Willis Mitchell and his sister Emma were in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama by December 1827 (marriage records). Except for Swepston, who was still in South Carolina (1830 census), Mr John E. Arnold believes that Durcilla and the rest of the family were probably all in Alabama by 1827. Banister was in Fayette County, Alabama by 1830 (census), and Willis was in Pickens County (1830 census). Swepston was in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama by 1834, when he and his brother-in-law, John Mitchell, acquired land there (Tuscaloosa County, Alabama land records). No information has been found on Lenny or Edny. Some information from the Gandrud records of Ala., SC genealogical records 1964 and Allen's Will of 1814 via Marian Mitchell Jones.
The children of 124 Allen and Drucilla (-----) Mitchell are as follows:
1241 John Banister4 Mitchell born about 1794, Laurens, South Carolina; married in 1820 to Mary Gilmore. Banister Mitchell moved to Fayette, Alabama and then to Marshall County, Mississippi sometime after 1840. Two of his sons, Banister Hampton Mitchell and John Simmons Mitchell, are listed there (Holly Springs) in the 1860 census.

Generation Four

1241 John Banister Mitchell (Allen3, William2, William Dewitt1 ) born about 1794, Laurens, South Carolina; married in 1820 to Mary Gilmore. Banister Mitchell moved to Fayette, Alabama and then to Marshall County, Mississippi sometime after 1840.
12411 Reuben J.5 Mitchell born 1818 in South Carolina; died 1866 in Panola County, Mississippi; married Jane Hall Brown.
12412 John Simmons5 Mitchell born 1820; married Lucinda Mothershead
12413 Elizabeth5 Mitchell

12418 Bannister Hampton5 Mitchell born February 16, 1834 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama; died 1878; married Rebecca Mothershead



1242 Swepston4 Mitchell (Allen3, William2, William DeWitt1 ) born November 27, 1795; died before 1860; married first in 1818 to Jincy Clarke married second about 1843 probably in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama to Martha Malone who was born about 1823 in South Carolina and died before 1880 in Mississippi. In the 1880 census Martha Jane, the youngest sister, was listed in the household of her brother, Jesse E. Mitchell. In the 1870 census for Calhoun County, Mississippi, two additional children that are unidentified, namely, Samuel Mitchell, age 12, and Wesley Mitchell, age 10, were listed in the household of Martha Mitchell, along with her own children, Elias, Willis, and Jane. (Note: These two children, Samuel and Wesley, could have been Martha's children if the ages given on the census are correct, however, "Jane" was listed as older than them and being born in 1856 but was actually born 1859.) The following information is based primarily on census records, plus limited information from family sources, IGI data, LDS source documents, etc. Swepston was married in South Carolina before 1820 (census records), and a Tuscaloosa County, Alabama deed in December of 1836 was signed jointly by his wife Jincy. There were as many as 10 children from this marriage, 6 male, 4 female (census records - Could the other males include Harvey, Lenny or Berry? See 1850 Pickens County, Southern District, Alabama census for Lenny and Berry and 1870 Mississippi, Calhoun census for Harvey.) Jincy probably died sometime after the 1840 census, and Swepston remarried (Martha Malone, born about 1823 in South Carolina) by 1843. It is thought that Swepston died in Calhoun County, Mississippi about 1859. The Swepston Mitchell family came to Calhoun County, Mississippi from Alabama in the mid-to-late 1850's, but Swepston apparently died before the 1860 census, which listed only Martha and the eight children. This family has not been located in the Alabama 1850 census. The first three children listed are by first wife Jincy Clark and the last eight are by second wife Martha Malone.

12422 Alva M.5 Mitchell born about 1837 in Alabama; married Narcissa Dye.
