THE REV. GEORGE A. MITCHELL, B. A., pastor of Zion Tabernacle, Hamilton, Out., was born in North Toronto, January 3ist, 1841. James Mitchell, his father, came from the North of Ireland in 1832. His mother was a daughter of the late Jacob Snider, a L'.E. Loyalist of German descent. Rev. Dr. Scadding, in his volume " Toronto of Old," refers to the subject of our sketch and his brother, William J., and says they " were to be seen twice every day, at all sea-sons, traversing the distance betweeit Lglington and Toronto, rising early and late taking rest, in order to be punctually present at, and carefully ready for, class-room or lecture-room in town, and this process was persevered in for the lengthened period required for a succession of curriculums." Both brothers ranked high among the prize men at Upper Canada College.
