She died before 1641, and perhaps some years earlier (2) By about 1641 Mary ____. She died after about 1662 (birth of last child).  Children:  With first wife.   i.  Elizabeth b Plymouth say 1628; m Plymouth 6 Dec 1645 John Washburn [PCR 2:94], son of John Washburn.   ii.  Thomas b Plymouth say 1630. In 1936 Merton Taylor Goodrich argued at length that this Thomas Mitchell was the same as a man of that name who appeared on Block Island by 1678 and had a family theere [TAG 12:93-99; see also NEHGR 82:457-58, which does not make this claim].  Others who have agreed with this position are G. Andrews Moriarty [TAG 19:226] and Robert S. Wakefield [MD 38:187-89].   iii. Mary b Plymouth say 1632; m (1) Plymouth 24 Dec 1652 James Shaw [PCR 8:14], son of John Shaw; m (2) John Jenny [BrLR 3:61].  With second wife:   iv.  Sarah b Plymouth about 1641 (aged "about ninety years") Dec 1731 [Plymouth  County Court Records 2:125]); m by Apr 1661 John Hayward.   v.  Jacob b say 1643; m Plymouth 7 Nov 1666 Susanna Pope [PCR 8:31] daughter of Thomas Pope. (On 5 Mar 1677/8 Experience Mitchell, Edward Mitchell and Joseph Bartlett were appointed guardian of the children of Jacob Mitchll [PCR 5:188, 252].)   vi.  Edward b say 1645 m (1) about 1668 Mary Hayward ("and lived with her forty years without children" [TAG 59:31]; m (2) Plymouth 26 Aug 1708 Alice Bradford [PVR 89].   vii.  John b say 1650; m (1) Duxbury 14 Dec 1675 Mary Bonney; m (2) Duxbury 14 Jan 1679[/80] Mary Lathrup; m (3) Duxbury 24 May 1682 Mary Prior.   viii. Hannah b say 1662; m by 1682 as his third wife Joseph Hayward (eldest child b Bridgewater 20 Mar 1682/3).   Associations:  Thomas Mitchell, nephew of Experience Mitchell, wrote two letters to his relatives in New England, one dated 23 Apr 1661 [NS\ and the other in 1689 [PNQ 3:101-04]. In the earlier of these two letters he asks his uncle Experience, "to present my respects and my sisters' and the husbands' to my Aunt Jea Gun and my cousin Joseph." Jean Gunn remains unidentified and no record of her has been found in N.E.   Comments:  In 1973 John B. Threlfall pointed out the likelihood that Jane Cooke was not the mother of all the children of Experience Mitchell, with daughter Elizabeth and son Thomas as the only two who could be certainly ascribed to this mother [NEHGR 127:94-95].  Then years later Robert S. Wakefield emphasized the same points, with the additional point thaat Jane (Cooke) Mitchell must have died before Bradford prepared his accounting of Mayflower families early in 1651 [TAG 59:28-31].   Both Threlfall and Wakefield note the possibility that daughter Mary was also a child of Jane (Cooke) Mitchell. The dates assigned  above indicate a gap of nearly a decade between Mary and the next child of Experience Mitchell, with all later children following at more or less normal intervals. This chronological analysis places Mary in the same sequence as Elizabeth and Thomas and separates her from the other children.  Although the evidence is not as strong as that for Elizabeth and Thomas, we feel more strongly than Threlfall or Wakefield that Mary was a daughter of Jane (Cooke) Mitchell.   In this connection it should also be noted that the last child, Hannah, seems to be considerably younger than all the others, raising the possibility that Mary was the third wife of Experience rather than the second.   In 1980 John B. Threlfall presented a document showing that on 3 Apr 1633 Mary Smedley and Mary Michell of Amsterdam "(where their husbands  and children remain)" wished to return from England where they had been visiting friends.  Mary Michell was described as the wife of Thomas Michell and Threfall suggested that Thomas was a brother of Experience [TAG 56:97-98].  On 20 June 1654, Experience Mitchell, Miles Standish, John Alden and Philip Delanoy were ordered to settle the bounds between Arther Howland and Thomas Doged [PCR 3:62].   Bibliographic Note:  Lora A.W. Underhill prepared a lengthy treatment of Experience Mitchell as part of her examination of the Small and allied families [Small Gen 507-98].

Washington: Maine Place Names & the Peopling of Its Towns:  The first settlers to Columbia were William and Noah Mitchell from Falmouth who came about 1750.The marshland at the mouth of Pleasant River had attracted them as feed for their cattle. they first constructed rude log cabins and hovels. William built the first frame house in town; exactly where it was located is not known. Among the heads of families living in Plantation #13, now Columbia Falls, in 1790 were Allen, Archer, Bucknam, Black, Cox, Coffin, Calaghan, Crocker, Drisko, Dunbar, Dorr, Hale, Ingersoll, Kelly, Nash, McKinsey, Merritt, Mansfield, McKaslegen, Reynolds, Tinny, Tucker, Tibbetts, Whitney, Wilson, Worcester, Wass and Weymouth. Captain Joseph Wilson of Kittery was one of the first settlers. He came about 1762; Captain John Bucknam from North Yarmouth, an early comer, began to build mills, and started lumbering in 1773.
