Virginia Emaline Williamson

b. circa 1840
  • Virginia Emaline Williamson was born circa 1840 in Texas.
  • In William B. Williamson's will of 27 October 1847 in Polk County, at Texas, Virginia Emaline Williamson was named as an heir; His first wife, Delilah, and their child Adaline are also mentioned.
  • William B. Williamson and Sarah Ann C. Kellum appeared in the US federal census of 1 June 1850 in Polk County, Texas. Other members of the household included Virginia Emaline Williamson, William Kellam Williamson and Leonora Danton Williamson. Also in the household were M. McElany (female, age 12, born in Mississippi) and school mistress Elizabeth Griffin.
  • She married Charles J. Mitchell, son of James L. Mitchell and Ann Anderson Hall, on 24 May 1860 in Polk County, Texas.
  • Charles J. Mitchell and Virginia Emaline Williamson appeared in the US federal census of 1 June 1860 in Coldspring, Polk County, Texas. Also in the household is overseer Frederick Lee, age 21.
  • Research Note: It is an educated guess that "Kinnie" Mitchell, born about 1860, enumerated in the household of "Josie" Mitchell Wood in the 1880 census as a niece, was the daughter of Charles and Virginia Williamson Mitchell, born after the 1860 census was taken, and that both parents died sometime before the 1870 census. Kinnie has yet to be found in 1870. It earlier was thought that Jane Mitchell also was a daughter of Charles, but additional evidence appears to confirm that she was a daughter of James and Elizabeth, despite her apparent absence from their household in 1870.
  • Apparently she died sometime between 1862 and 1870.
