Henry Mitchell was the son of Hardy Mitchell and Rebecca Post (both buried at Maloney Springs Cem., Cobb Co., GA); he had the following siblings: John, Elizabeth Ann, Mary E., Martha, Nancy, Emily, Rebecca, Sarah, Angeline, and Rhoda Mitchell.

He married a young lady by whom he had 3 children; they were later separated and he lived with his sister, Elizabeth Ann Mitchell Dunn.

Henry was a private in Co B, 41st GA Infantry and was wounded in Perryvile on Oct. 8, 1862; he was captured in Vicksburg on July 4, 1863 and paroled on July 6, 1863. He was then wounded in the left leg and permanently disabled at the Battle of Missionary Ridge TN on Nov. 25, 1863. He reportedly walked back to Marietta from Chattanooga as soon as he was able.
