My great-great grandfather Ephraim Miles Mitchell and his family were in Shelby Co., TX starting in the 1840's and are shown in the Shelby Co.  Census in 1846, 1850, 1860, and 1870.  Ephraim and his wife Rebecca died in Shelby County in 1875 and 1879 respectively.  They had 10 children.  I have not been able to find them in any of the on-line Shelby County cemeteries so far.  I would really appreciate any information on them and their family.  Thanks.  Stan Snipes, Houston, TX, 1
