      living and one dead.
      Name:
      Name: Father Mitchell, moved his little family to Hancock Co, In October 1835. It was very interesting to hear him narrate the trials, hardships, and incidents connected with the early settlement of this county.
      Name:
      Name: They lived in a cabin without a floor, with a clapboard roof, loft, and clapboard cupboard; carried the water used, out of a hole made by the falling of a tree. Many times had only meat rinds with which they would cook their hominy. Jamb made
      of mud for a fireplace. In cooking they had to step down about 18 inches. Did not even have a hearth for a number of years. These are only a few of the many interesting incidents connected with their early pioneer life;. Grandma informs me that
      during all these trials and hardships they were always contented and happy.
      Name:
      Name: His disease, kidney trouble, was lingering and painful. He was very patient in all his suffering. When the hour of dissolution was approaching, his daughter, who had watched over him with constant and loving care, approached him saying,
      "father, do you want anything?" He answered, "nothing; I am only waiting until the Lord takes me."
      Name:
      Name: As a husband he was kind and affectionate, and as a father he was indulgent and prudent. Firmenss on the side of honesty and industry was one of his distinguishing characteristics. He was as complete an example of self-control as we ever saw;
      always calm and dignified under all circumstances. Bro. Cooper, of the Presbyterian church and Bro. Bulger, of the U. B church, joined me in the funeral services. The writer spoke a few comforting words to a large audience whose presence at his
      funeral attested his worth as a citizen, neighbor, and friend.
