He is a grandson of William and Mary Wilcox Mitchell, who were natives of Pennsylvania, and einigrated to this State, locating near what is now Paris, shortly after the battle of Blue Licks. He was a tanner bv trade, and it is supposed that he worked one of the first tanneries in the county. The Mitchell family emigrated first from Scotland to the north of Ireland, from which place they emigrated to America. They belonged to the Old Scotch Church, what is now denominated as Scotch-Presbyterian, and were very strict in regard to their religious ideas of worship. To William Mitchell and wife were born four children; the eldest was William, who settled in Mason County; Thomas was the father of our subject, who located in Paris; James settled in Indiana; Jane was the only daughter. She married James Graham, and settled in Indiana also. William Mitchell lived an honorable and upright life, and died a Christian, which life he lived for many years. Thomas Mitchell, the father of Joseph, was born in this county, and early in life learned the blacksmith's trade, but did not follow this vocation long, but learned the saddler's trade, which business he followed for many years. He, too, like his father, lived agreeable to his profession, being a member of the same church. His death occurred in 1836. His companion in life survived him until 1849. Their union was blessed with four children, William being the eldest; Joseph, Mary and Thomas. Of the above, William settled in Paris, and engaged in the grocery business, where he lived until removed by death in Dec., 1867. He left a family of seven children. Mary married George Irvine, and first settled in Indiana, but finally removed to Kansas, and there died, leaving three children. Thomas settled in Lexington, where he now resides. he is cashier in the First National Bank of that place. Joseph, our subject, was raised in Paris, and at the age of twelve., he entered the store of N. B. Ryan as clerk; at the age of twenty-three he became a partner with his employer, in 1845, under the firm name of Ryan & Mitchell, which association lasted until 1861. In 1865 he removed to the farm he now owns, consisting of 430 acres, situated on Winchester Pike, near Paris, where he has since been engaged in farming and stockraising, making a specialty of short-horns and Cotswold sheep. The farm Mr. Mitchell owns was settled by the Breckinridges. Since 1863, Mr. Mitchell has been President of the Northern Bank of Paris, and for many years a member of the Presbyterian Church. He has been twice married; first, in 1847, to Sarah M. Ryan, who was born in Paris, daughter of Newton B. and Ann Griffing. Her family (the Ryans) were natives of Virginia. Mrs. Mitchell died in 1857, leaving two children: Newton, and Sarah M., who married James L. Gay, of Woodford County. His second marriage was consummated Oct. 1867, to Elizabeth J. Brooks, who was born in Clark County, daughter of Samuel and Polly (Gass) Brooks; both were early and representative, families of this county. One daughter by last marriage, named Mary.


Joseph Mitchell was one of the very godly elders in the Paris Church. He was a very conscientious servant of God. On May 18, 1824, at a meeting of the session he opposed taking an offering in the church on Sunday. He believed that no church business should be transacted on Sunday. One of his sons, David, died at Washington College in Virginia just as lie was entering upon the ministry.
Joseph Mitchell died in 1842. Dr. L. H. Blanton paid him this tribute:
"In the case of Mr. Mitchell, I can not discover that he was absent a dozen times, until near the close of his life, when the infirmities of age came upon him. He departed this life in 1842. For half a century he was an active elder and during the whole time d'scharged the duties of Stated Clerk with uncommon skill and accuracy. I doubt whether there are many Sessional Records that go up to our Presbyteries which will compare with those of the Paris Church while Mr. Mitchell was Stated Clerk."
They had one child:

i. Mary.
