John Russell Mitchell is my Grandmother Anne Mitchell Moon's brother. Apparently, VFW 609 in Alexandria is named for him and there is a plaque in Pohick Church that President Warren Harding dedicated to six local soldiers that died in combat in the World War. It got me curious; I am trying to find where he is buried.
From records, I have found his DOB is Oct. 6, 1895 and DOD is Oct. 17, 1918. He was killed in France. I have searched cemeteries there but have not found him. I am hoping I will find him in Virginia.
