t is easy to see who she is talking about as it can be no ther people Thomas Mitchells father being Willam son of Christopher and the two brothers in bath are James Mills Mitchell and Jonathan Mitchell the sister a Mrs Berry is Rhoda Mitchell who married John Berry all lived in Bath a perfect fit. Also Joseph Mitchell of Leeds named a son John Berry Mitchell and a Daughter Rhoda Berry Mitchell also both Thomas and Joseph named a son David Berry Mitchell. It should also be noted that when Thomas Mitchell sold in Bath the Deed was witnessed by James Mills Mitchell who would be his Uncle. and that James Mills Mitchells Granddaughter Hannah L Mitchell Married David Berry Mitchell son of Joseph Mitchell of Leeds also that Thomas , Joseph, and James Mills Mitchell owned a church pew togather in Bath also Thomas Mitchell Married Mary Lemont and her uncle Thomas Lemont was married to Lucy Mitchell the dau of Christopher Mitchell and so would be an aunt to Thomas Mitchell of Leeds this is more than just coincidence.

Coffin’s Mill was the second mill to be built in the Town of Leeds. The mill was originally erected on land owned by Thomas Mitchell. The mill ran successfully until 1812, when an embargo was placed upon shipping from U.S. ports. This proved disasterous to Maine’s lumber trade and Thomas Mitchell, whose plan was to transport lumber to Hallowell and loaded aboard schooners, was forced to sell his property.
