Orlando McDavid “Lando” Mitchell, born May 5, 1865 in Randolph County, Missouri, died October 27, 1949 in Kansas City, Jackson, Missouri, was a son of Rev. James Bourne Mitchell and Martha Cowden Dysart. On Nov 20 1890 he married Clara Wilson, born Nov 25, 1864 in Pennsylvania, died June 20, 1910 in Kansas City. Their children were Horace Wilson Mitchell, born July 31st 1891 in Kansas City, Jackson Missouri, died January 11, 1984 in Columbus, Franklin, Ohio, and Martha Mitchell born June 1898.

“Orlando McDavid Mitchell, born May 6, 1865, died Oct. 27, 1948, married Clara Wilson. His business was banking, safe deposit and investment work. I must not forget fishing. He had the power of relaxing and lived longer than any of his brothers. He kept an account that was the Lord’s. He helped greatly at Missouri Valley College, investing its money wisely and drawing on the Lord’s account for its help.”
