Hi there

Anyone with information on Samuel H. Mitchell (died 1927) who worked for the Phoenix Street Car Co. (Phoenix Railway Co.) ..

His wife (widow) Ella S Mitchell was a member of the Payson Presbyterian Church.

They lived at 1314 E. Washington Street.

Kind regards

Ella was definitely a key factor in the founding of the Payson Presbyterian Church. The Roundup had an article a few years ago on their 75th anniversary that mentioned her extensively. I also checked my clip collection, and below is what I found. I would suggest getting in touch with the Payson Presbyterian Church to see if they have some additional information. I'm sure that they would love to hear from you.
