Photo of the Five Mitchell Brothers, Sons of James Bourne Mitchell

Thanks to Jim Mitchell, descendent of Orlando for the original scan and information on it. I have endeavored to try to lighten it a little to try to bring out the features more. It’s great to have an image of all the brothers together. Too bad we don’t have one of the sisters!
