      The only info I have on Benoni Mitchell comes from census information of 1850 in Pleasant Township, Hancock Co., Ohio. He was one year old at the time of the census, so he was born in 1848 or 1849.

      His father was Robert Name: Mitchell, born about 1804 in Pennsylvania. Robert's wife was named Miriam and she was born in Delaware about 1810. Of the children still living with them in 1850, the first four were born in Pennsylvania. The other six listed were born in
      Ohio. That would imply that the family moved to Ohio about 1837.

      The reason I took down this information is that many of my Culp ancestors lived in this same township, or an adjoining one, and one of them married a William Mitchell, who was born in Pennsylvania about 1813. He may have been a younger brother to Robert.

      He married Rachel Culp, eldest child of my direct ancestor Benoni Culp, in 1839. Benoni Culp died in 1841, and Benoni Mitchell was probably named after him, as it was not a common name. I haven't found William Mitchell's ancestry, but I see that in the 1880 census he says his parents were both born in Ireland. In 1880 he and Rachel, apparently childless, were living in Odessa Township, Ionia Co., Michigan, which is where probably died.

      I have found evidence of another Benoni Mitchell but have yet to find any connection between this Benoni Mitchell and Benoni C Mitchell (1849 - 1891). I have to believe that they are related due to the unique first name that they share.
