Mrs. Joanna Newberry Mizell was born about 1832 and was the 2nd wife of Jordan Washington Mizell (1802-1884). The two are buried next to each other in the cemetery named for him. Together, they would have at least 7 children that I currently know of. I’ve posted their family information to Ancestry.com.
From the 31 Mar 1899 issue of the Roanoke Beacon
While walking in her yard on Sunday afternoon last, Mrs. J.A. MIZELL stumbled and fell, one of the family ran to help her up and found that she was unconscious, assistance was called and the lady was taken into the house and a physician sumoned, and while she partically rallied she grew weaker until Tuesday night when she fell asleep to ‘wake no more and her spirit was wafted home to Glory. The deceased was about 75 years old and lived with her son seven miles from this town. We extend sympathies to the bereaved.
