Portrait of Angeline "Angie" Brigham Mitchell (b. 1854 - d. 1909).

Angeline "Angie" Brigham Mitchell was born in Bridgewater, Massachusetts on October 5, 1854, the daughter of Angeline "Angie" Brigham Mitchell (b. 1824 - d. 1906) and Daniel F. Mitchell, Sr. (b. 1807 - d. 1877). In response to a call for surveyors and teachers in Arizona Territory, the Mitchells joined the Grizzly Callen party bound for Prescott in 1875, traveling by covered wagon and bringing with them the possessions they most valued, including a canary in a gilded cage.

Like her mother, Angie was a teacher. After arriving in Prescott, Arizona she taught at Miller Valley, Tiger Mine, Wild Rye, Tonto Basin, and West Prescott schools. In January 1877 she resigned her position as a teacher in Walnut Grove School and, according to the Arizona Miner newspaper; she began advertising her Private School. She married George Edward Brown on April 20, 1881 and were married until his death from spinal meningitis in March 1908. The couple did not have any children.
