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!
Jim provides the below identification.
Taken about 1890?
