  1. ?

  2. ?

My great great great grandmother was Catherine Mitchell. We do not know know much about the woman except that she married Owen Clement BOODRIE on the 2 Sep 1822 in St John's Cathedral, Calcutta. She was listed as being a spinster formerly resident at The Lower (Road?) Orphange School, Calcutta. Owen Boodrie was a fifer in the 2/15th Bengal Native Infantry, so he is certain have been an Anglo-Indian, and presume that Catherine was also. Does anyone have any further information about the Mitchell family in India? Please contact us at:   Jarrod and Corlia Bell
