Jesus is Lord - Romans Chapter 10 v 9
Below is part of an e-mail received from Australia regarding the Mitchell family who were members of Fahan Presbyterian Church.
Recently while researching my MITCHELL family I googled “Fahan Presbyterian Church” and was thrilled to find four items of interest to me in my research.
· Photographs of Fahan Presbyterian Church where my great aunt Annie Mitchell married James Scott Laidlaw in 1912.
· The Great War Memorial tablet in memory of those who served in the war including my great uncle Andrew Mitchell who died in 1917 and also “Miss M Mitchell VAD” - I think this is my great aunt Meg Mitchell who later trained as a nurse.
· The History of the Church booklet - On 20 November 1920 Mrs Mitchell, Fahan, requested permission to erect a tablet in the church to the memory of her son Andrew. The approval of a mural tablet to the memory to the fallen heroes was given with the congregation bearing expenses and a bronze tablet would cost £45.00 or £50.00.
· The seating plan for 1890-1901 showing the James Mitchell family in seat 37. I would like to ask permission to use these items in a small booklet I am preparing for my immediate family, about the Mitchell family. I would also like to thank whoever was responsible for including those items on the
I am not sure when the Mitchells moved to Fahan, but possibly towards the end of 1901. In 1901 Census they were living in
