Daughter of John Freude and Henrietta Elert Harland. She was born in Baden Prussia and emigrated with family to the United States in 1868. She and her parents were naturalized on October 12, 1869. She married John W. Mitchell December 27, 1884 in Pleasant Hill near Crete in Saline County, Nebraska. The couple had one child, William Earl Mitchell, born June 20, 1885 in Pleasant Hill. Amelia, John and William lived in Omaha in 1900 where John worked as a boilermaker (steam engineer). In 1907, the family moved to Laramie County in Wyoming, where her husband and son were employed by the Sunrise Mine repairing their ore cars and steam equipment.

Sunrise and Guernsey are now in Platte County which was formed from northern Laramie County in early 1913. The Mitchell's son, William homesteaded in an area first called Junction; and later named Meadowdale, which has rural farms about 25 miles north of Guernsey: population 87 in 1900. It is still part of Laramie County.

Amelia passed away at the age of 47 years, 7 months, and 12 days. Sometime in 1920, her husband John joined her in the original cemetery, Lot 114, where the couple are in unmarked graves, 1 and 2.
