I was seeking info on Mitchell some years ago, without success, but wonder in the intervening years whether more records are forthcoming.
"Mitchell" was born John William Eccles in 1894 in Preston but changed his name just prior to emigrating to Vancouver Canada in 1920. In 1921 he abandons his family and crosses the boarder into the US on 21st Jan 1924 to "become an actor" in Hollywood. He's officially traveling to visit "friend Chas J Hereford @ 3874 South Harbour Boulevard, Los Angeles" He eventually returns to Canada but don't know when, probably within a year but that's guess work.
Are there any records of any kind of his time in the US wherever that may be? Or even of him recrossing the boarder?
