    Notes 
    • From: Gerry Lynn Hamilton, General Manager, Collegian Inc. (glh5@psu.edu)

      Fred Mitchell was a life-long resident of Potter County. He worked as a teamster (1900) as a young man still living with his parents in Eulalia Twp. For most of his life, Fred and wife Becky farmed in Genesee Twp.

      US Census reports show the following names: Frederick (1880) and F.M. (1910), but Fred was the most common. He used Fred on his World War I draft registration card (1918). His father used Freddie on a pension questionnaire (1887).

      Records show three different birth dates. The one he used for draft registration seems to be the most authoritative.
      --24 Jan 1880, Family chart by Ron Bruce.
      --23 Jan 1880, Pension questionnaire by his father.
      --22 Jan 1880, Draft registration by himself.

      Records show two different dates of death: 29 Dec 1940 on the Ron Bruce chart and 27 Jan 1941 on the cemetery listing.
