Robert Gwyn Mitchell and Lena Bell Carhart

Born 19 Oct. 1852 in Monroe Co. MO, Robert Gwyn MITCHELL was the 3rd son and
fourth child of James Bourne MITCHELL and Martha Cowden DYSART. James Bourne
was 31 and Martha was 27 at the time of Robert Gwyn’s birth.

On 5 August 1891, in Macon Co., MO., Robert Gwyn, 38, married Lena Bell
Carhart who was 18 years his junior, born 22 March 1871 in Macon Co., MO. to
Elliot CARHART and Margaret PETTIT.

Robert, a lawyer, who is described as “having been called by the government to
break trusts” and a sunday school teacher, died 6 March 1909 in St. Louis, MO.
at the age of 56, his youngest son only being a year old.

Lena, though only 38 at the time of Robert’s death, never remarried. She died
26 Nov. 1957 at Baldwin KS., age 86.

Most likely is an error here but I find it curious that the April 4th 1910
census gives Lena as married, rather than widowed. For she would have been
widowed nearly a year. And all other information is correct.

Robert MITCHELL is given as having died in St. Louis MO. Saturday 6 March
1909.

Robert and Lena had 7 children, 6 of whom reached adulthood:

1.) Margaret Gwynette MITCHELL b. 11 Oct 1892. (Robert was 39 and Lena was 21.)
Married Warner B. HAGAN 8 April 1917 when she was about 25 and he was about 26.
Margaret died 20 Dec. 1933 at about the age of 41. Warner, born 21 June 1891,
died 19 Feb. 1954 at about 63.

2.) Robert C. MITCHELL b. 9 March 1895 in Macon, Macon Co. MO. 22 March 1871
(Robert was 42 and Lena was 23). Married 15 June 1925, Katherine ZEISNEIS. He
was about 30 and she about 29. Robert died in Sarasota FL., 28 May 1966 at
about 71. Katherine, b. 7 May 1896, died 2 Feb. 1980 at about 84. Read a
newspaper mention of Robert’s Honorable Discharge in the history section.

3.) James Dysart MITCHELL b. April 27 1897 at Macon, Macon Co. MO., died 6 Jan.
1900. James Dysart’s obituary is in the history section.

4.) John Carhart MITCHELL b. 9 Dec. 1901 at Macon, Macon Co. MO. (Robert was 48
and Lena was 30). John married Aileen WOODBURY on 1 June 1929. He was about 28
and she about 26.

5.) Dorothy MITCHELL b. 18 Oct. 1903 at Macon Co. MO. (Robert was 50 and Lena
was 32), married Albert Harry MCCLURE b. 25 Oct. 1900, Utica, Minnesotta.

6.) Lawrence Carhart MITCHELL b. 23 April 1906 at Macon, Macon Co. MO. (Robert
was 53 and Lena was 35), married Eleanor GOODSON on 11 May 1935. He was about
29. Lawrence died 7 Jan 1980 at Syracuse, Onondaga NY at about 74. Eleanor died
29 Oct. 1956.

7.) Benjamin Dysart MITCHELL b. 29 July 1908 at Macon Co. MO. (Robert was 55
and Lena was 37), married Helen OJALA, 25 Nov. 1937. He was about 29. Benjamin
died 26 August 1991, at about 83, in Duluth, Minn.

Robert G. MITCHELL
Macon

Robert Swyn Mitchell of the firm of Dysart and Mitchell, is a son of James B.
and Martha C. (Dysart) Mitchell, and dates his birth in Monroe County,
Missouri, October 19, 1952. His father is a Cumberland Presbyeterian minister,
born in Virginia, and his mother is a native of this state, and a sister of
Benjamin R. Dysart, one of the leading lawyers in Macon county, and mentioned
in preceeding pages of this work. The family came to Macon county in 1853,
before Robert was a yrear old, and his father was president of McGee College
for many years, being now pastor at Kirksville.

The subject of this notice farmed until seventeen years old, attending school
during the winter terms, and then took a classical course in McGee College,
Macon County, and was graduated in 1874. Afterward he taught three years in
Chariton and Macon counties, making quite a success as an educator. He read
law with his uncle, Mr. Dysart, already mentioned; was invited to the bar in
1989 and since August of that year has been of the firm of Dysart and Mitchell,
his partner being his preceptor. He was county school commissioner for four
years, his term expiring in April 1883.

Mr. Mitchell is not only talented, but for a young man possesses a high degree
of culture. He is thoroughly devoted to his profession, diligent in his
studies, as well as in his practice, eminently reliable and trustworthy, and is
a rising young man. He holds a membership in the Cumberland Presbyeterian
Church, and is living a life consistent with his Christian profession.

Born April 27 1897, Died Jan 6. 1900.

James Dysart MITCHELL, the little 3 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Robt. G.
MITCHELL was taken suddenly ill Wednesday evening of last week with
dyptheria, and although all that medical aid and kind loving hands could
do was done for the little fellow,nothing could assuage his suffering,
and on Saturday morning at one o’clock he succumbed to the dread disease.
James Dysart was a bright, playful boy and he will be sadly missed by his
parents and little brother and sister, Robert and Gwynette. Yet with the
hope of the Christian they await the resurrection morn when they shall be
reunited in the Father’s house. A Scripture lesson and prayer was read at
the grave by Rev. R. T. CALDWELL.

ANNIE HELM CHAPTER NSDAR
Organized October 20, 1908

HISTORY

Anne Helm Chapter was organized by a group of 23 patriotic women on October 20,
1908, in Macon, Missouri

Charter Members were: Louisa William Brock, Maude Dysart Brock, Ethel Coulter
Brown, Mary Craddock Doneghy, Kate Campbell Doneghy, Martha Prewitt Doneghy,
Carrie Stewart Duffy, Emma Turner Dysart, Susie Mitchell Guthrie, Mattie
Blincoe Howe, Hettie Coulter Lamb, Martha Gilstrap Matthews, Mary Anderson
Matthews, Corrine Matthews, Lena Carhart Mitchell, Lena Trowbridge Payson,
Emily Pipkin Simmons, Amy Simmons, Lucy Simmons, Mary Van Cleve, Hallie
Wilkinson Wardell, Stella Turner Wilson, and Elizabeth Stickney Wilson.

The name Anne Helm was chosen in honor of Mrs. John T. Doneghy’s great-great
grandmother who assisted and sacrificed members of her family for the cause of
the Revolutionary War.

The Macon Public Library was founded on March 23, 1912, with Miss Sarah
Larrabee as librarian. It was located in the Howe Building opposite of the
Jefferson Hotel. DAR members raised funds by having “Tap Day” and several
“Macon County Banquets.” The response to the library was so great that it soon
became too large for the Howe Store. The library moved several times until, in
1915, the trustees voted to build a permanent library. The Anne Helm Chapter
purchased the lot on the corner of Rutherford and Butler where the present
library building is located.
The Anne Helm Chapter was instrumental in forming the first Red Cross Chapter
in Macon and helped to raise funds to sponsor Herbert English, a volunteer for
ambulance service in France during W.W.I.

On November 11, 1934, a bronze plaque was unveiled at the Macon County Court
House to honor four Revolutionary Soldiers who are buried in Macon County. They
are James Howell, James Lynch, Bennett Tilley, and Nicholas Tuttle.
