David and Margaret Mitchell Genealogy – Appendix

A Tribute to Albert Small by David Mitchell Small My father always provided well for his family. During the Civil War, he staid at home and his father went in his place; my father having such a large family, this plan was thought the best. My father helped at home to gather recruits, and I remember of his telling of his numerous narrow escapes from the opposition. He was always one of the leading men in the church (U. P.) The 23d psalm was his favorite and he said that when he died he wanted us to repeat that psalm. When he died, you could almost see his soul leave the body and go up to heaven. A prayer for his wife’s and his’ children’s welfare, and that the Lord would receive his soul, were his last thoughts. A Tribute to Joseph Kyle by Joseph Kyle D.D My father was large and strong in body, mind and spirit. He was six feet and three inches in height and as straight as an Indian until a few months before his death. His mental furnishing was especially fine. He was widely read and thoroughly interested in civil and ecclesiastical affairs. Two sons and three stepsons were in the Union army during the war, and with the spirit that sent them to the front he was in heartiest sympathy His religious life was marked by ardent zeal for what he believed to be the truth of God and for the honor of Jesus Christ. To the end of his days he was intensely interested in the welfare of the Church in which...

David and Margaret Mitchell, First Generation

The Children of David and Margaret Mitchell Elizabeth (Mitchell) Laughead 1. Elizabeth (Mitchell) Laughead. Born the last part of the year 1763, in Cumberland County, Pa., not many miles southwesterly from Carlisle. She was baptised by Rev. John Cuthbertson, Feb. 20, 1764 ; moved to Kentucky with parents in 1779, and, with them in the fort, shared the hardships of the early pioneers. About the year 1786, she married David, son of James and Eleanor (McKnight) Laughead, who were married by Rev. John Cuthbertson, Dec. 12, 1752, at Octarara, Pa. and who, about 1784, moved to Fayette Co., Ky. It is said of James, that he served in the raid against the Ohio Indians in 1780. If so, he must have gone from Pa., as they had not yet moved to Ky. There were Laugheads in the Monongehela Congregation at Yough, Pa., in 1779. The McKnights into whose family James married were part of a large connection, living in Lancaster Co., and were prominent Covenanters. From Reb. I. N. Laughead’s booklet, we quote as follows: “As far as I can track back our name through the generations that are passed, I find our fathers and mothers associated with the strictest orders of the Presbyterian family. Our immediate forefathers were a mixture of Covenanter and Seceder origin (Reformed and Associate Presbyterian). Our name is Scotch-Irish. About the year 1650, King Charles L, of England, being at war with his parliament, was defeated in Scotland and delivered into the hands of the English parliament, was tried, condemned and beheaded. His son, Prince Charles (afterwards Charles IL) fled the country. Oliver Cromwell,...
