Wm Mitchell on 2 June 1863 at Dry Valley, Union County, Pennsylvania.1 This account was found in the Mifflin county Historical Society.
It was written shortly before William's death in 1875 and published in the Lewistown Gazette. It is rambling and sometimes hard to follow but I thought you might find it interesting. I have copied it exactly as I found it; however I have numbered the children to make it easier to follow.
" My grandfather, John Mitchell , came to Philadelphia long before the Revolutionary War. He married a lady named Jane Ross, the only daughter of Lord John Ross who was very wealthy. Her father was bitterly opposed to the marriage and they had to flee the country. (Ireland) The father then offered one hundred pounds, under the Old English law for his head, dead or alive. In the course of time the father became reconciled to the marriage and went up from Philadelphia to Carlisle and owned them as his children. John Ross died in Philadelphia, date unknown to us.
John Mitchell had eight children, three boys and five girls.

Ross, James and William, sons of whom we know nothing.
Isabella died November 15 , 1811 and John Ross died in 1802, at the same place where his father died, one mile north of Carlisle at the Big Limestone Spring. Another daughter is said to have married a man named Miller. This might have been the daughter of the first marriage to Mary West.
(5) Ann Agnes married Thomas Alexander.
(6) William 1756-1822, married Elizabeth Hamilton on March 23 1780; He died March 8, 1822; She died April 9, 1827, in Clarion county. In 1777 he went down to Brandywine to haul the baggage wagons and was in that battle, serving under Capt. Walter Stewart, 2nd Pa. Regiment, and in 1778 was transferred to Capt. Jacob Ashmead's Co., same Regiment, as drummer. He served 2 years; was paid off in Continental money, fetched it home and bought a farm near Lancaster or New Lancaster . He married near Red Rock Church in Sherman's Valley. In 1766 his father John traded the horses he rode over the mountain into Dry valley, looking for land, to a man named Baird for his claim to several hundred acres of land.
In 1781 William sold his farm he bought with his war pay to a man named Davis, and in 1784 he, his wife, and two children, on horseback came over the mountain to settle upon the farm his father had traded his horses for. William Mitchell's body was buried in the Methodist Church yard at Kelly and on the headstone: " A Soldier of the Revolution."

Margaret Clayton1

F, b. 16 October 1797, d. 18 May 1886
     Margaret Clayton was born on 16 October 1797 at Pennsylvania.2 She married William Mitchell at Lewistown, Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, on 25 November 1819.2 Her married name was Mitchell.1 Margaret Clayton died on 18 May 1886 at Tescott, Ottawa County, Kansas, at age 88; at the resident of her sister Mrs. Nancy Jamison
--
Obituary for Margaret Mitchell from Lincoln County Beacon, May 27, 1886
Died, May 18, at the resident of her sister, Mrs. Nancy Jamison, in Madison township, Lincoln county, Kansas, of old age, Mrs. Margaret Mitchell, in the 89th year of her age.
Thus has closed a most useful and eventful life among the few who withstood the storms and battles of life for nearly a century, but at last obeyed the stern decree of death, which is no respecter of persons. About seven years ago Mrs. Mitchell moved with her children from Mifflin county, Pa. to this county. Mother Mitchell rested her hopes in the doctrines of Christianity as taught by the M.E. church, to which she was a lifelong, devoted member. During her last illness, which was only a wasting away of life's "fitful dream" by old age, she never murmured or complained, but looked forward with that firm and unshaken hope which causes the Christian's end to be his best. To mourn her loss she leaves eight children, who were present at her dying bed with tearful eyes, while her spirit winged its flight to its future home. Her six sons, who all embrace the doctrine she did, tenderly bore the loving mother and wife to her final resting place. Her goodness of heart was by all admired and her many deeds of charity and kindness will be remembered with profound gratitude by all. To see her was to admire her; to know her was to respect her
