Something New, Somethng Old

Same old excuses, I have been busy with an article about John Pipes Jr.'s oldest son named Joseph who lived in the SW corner of Pennsylvania. John was first married to Jemima Harriman in Morris County, NJ. Will post a link here when I am done. We also discovered a new Son named Daniel, so he has 3 sons and a daughter there: Joseph, John III, Daniel and Rhoda.

Something new was sent to me by Robert Mitchell who is a desc of the Robert Mitchell in Old Union and the Mitchell family from Mitchellsburg. His G Grandfather was R.H.C. Mitchell, an attorney and businessman from Danville. He owned and operated the Mitchell farm in the late 1800s and hired Elias Hardin Pipes, "E.H." and George Washington Pipes, "G.W." at various times. He then paid them with Bank Checks. Robert sent me two of these checks from 1898 and 99. One is for fertilizer and the other is for Threshing services.
