Notes for Isaac Mitchell
Isaac Mitchell appears to have been the same Isaac Mitchell who is mentioned in a Lunenburg Co VA deed and the son of John Mitchell, who made his will in Lunenburg Co in 1755.

Isaac Mitchell was listed in Tithes of Lunenburg Co VA in 1748 and 1752.1651 There is a Lunenburg Co a deed recorded 7 Jan 1755:

Jacob MITCHELL, Planter, to Isaac MITCHELL . cons. 10 pounds . 77 acres on Buffalo Creek.
Witnesses: Reuben SEARCY, Michael SATTERWHITE, Thomas EASTLAND. /s/ Jacob MITCHELL.
Dated: 7 Jan 1755. Recorded: 7 Jan 1755.

In 1773, Isaac Mitchell and Mary his wife, of Colleton Co, leased and released 296 acres on a branch of Ninety-six Creek waters of Saludy River…”1652

In the 1790s, there were deeds in Newberry District SC involving Isaac Mitchell and several Satterwhites.1653 These deeds presumably involved Isaac Mitchell Jr.

According to the Historical and Genealogical Annals of Newberry County, SC, Isaac Mitchell first settled in the Newberry District, then moved to the Abbeville District where he died about 1789. Isaac Jr. was not yet 21 when his father died.1654

Isaac Mitchell was witness to a deed dated 10 Nov 1785. “David Dickson, planter of Tyger River (Spartanburg Co) to Patrick Cunningham, planter, on Reedy and Saluda Rivers.1655

Isaac Mitchell
left will in Abbeville, 1789, naming his wife Mary executrix (maiden name unknown; probably second wife), and Nathan Sims, Robert Pollard, Richard Pollard, and son Isaac (minor) executors. Daughters Ursula, Catherine, Mary, and Sarah (married Whitlow), "other sons," and "all my children" are mentioned in will. Existing estate papers name other children William, Daniel, James, John (got family Bible), Martha (married Hill), and possibly Elisha. Old Isaac's widow Mary married John Satterwhite. Some of the Mitchell family moved to Laurens, and Mary Satterwhite left will in Laurens, 1824.515

Son Isaac Mitchell married Sally Shackelford, daughter of Richard Shackelford, prominent Baptist preacher. Isaac and Sally had several children before Mitchells and Shackelfords moved from Laurens to Madison County, Alabama, 1812/14. Sally (and Richard Shackelford) died in Alabama, but Isaac Mitchell died near Memphis, Tennessee, 1856/57. Most of his children were dead, and his will provides few clues to his MANY descendants; but apparently one son was Daniel Mitchell, born in S.C.515
Notes for Mary (Spouse 1)
Proof that Mary Mitchell was daughter of Daniel Williams comes from Daniel’s 1757 will:

“…equally Divided among my Seven Children (Viz.) Merya Goodman, Henry Williams, John Williams, James Williams, Joseph Williams, Mary Mitchell and Daniel Williams”

coupled with a later deed of gift from Ursula Williams:

“Deed of gift, Nov 9, 1761, Ursula WILLIAMS to her grandchildren Daniel GOODMAN, son of Benj. GOODMAN, and Ursula MITCHELL, dau of Isaac MITCHELL, each a feather bed; for love and affection. Gr. Co. Rec., 1760-62, p. 53.”
