Hi All

I'm looking for information re: Job Mitchell, born about 1798. His father was called John. All I know is Job originated from Somerset. His name changed later to Joseph.
He served in the army and went to Scotland and settled there. He married a Jane Little/Liddle.

I don't know which area in Somerset he came from.
