About Jacob Mitchell

Jacob and Susanna slain by Indians in Dartmouth in 1675

--------------------

JACOB2 Mitchell (Experience1) b. 1640-46 at Duxbury; d. Jun 1675 at Fairhaven: m. 7 Nov 1666 Susannah Pope, dau. of Thomas and Sarah (Jenney) Pope, b. ca 1649; d. Jun 1675 at Fairhaven.

Jacob was a carpenter. Before he married, he built a home for Susannah on Sandwich Street in Plymouth. It is still standing. Jacob sold his house to Jabez Howland before 1673 and the Howland family lived there until 1680. It is now called the Howland House; it has been fully restored and is maintained by the Pilgrim John Howland Society.

Jacob was given a gift of land from his father and settled at Dartmouth, now Fairhaven, MA in 1669. Jacob was an Ensign and in 1675 at the commencement of King Philip’s War, he and Susannah were attacked by Indians as they were going to the garrison house early in the morning. They lived to reach the garrison but later died of their wounds. They had sent their children to the safety of the garrison the afternoon before; after the death of their parents, the children were brought up by their uncle Edward Mitchell.
