Cammack-McCammack Family Connection??

Today, after working on the McCammack family of Va., Tenn. and Indiana for a long time, I've found references to the McCammacks being known as "Cammack" Wythe Co. Va. I've checked on the Cammack connection before with no results. I'm going to detail what is known in family circles as the McCammack Family Legend in hopes that some Cammack researchers will see a clear connection and be able to help.
"According to the most reliable account it appears that the immigrant ancestor of the McCammack family in America was John McCammack (another version says James McCammack) of Scotch or Irish-Scotch origin who landed in Baltimore before the Revolution. He landed in the Valley of Virginia and according to legend, two of his daughters married Yankees, one son went to Pennsylvania and another went to Louisiana. Their names are not known but there is some evidence that he had a son James, also a grandson David who moved to Texas"

Other children:
John McCammack Va. d.8-3-1864 Putnam Co. In.
m.9-25-1809 Nancy Hurst (1790-1859) in Wythe Co. Va. Settled in Claiborne Co. Tenn. ca.1816, Putnam Co. In. ca.1830.
Thomas McCammack Va. d.11-11-1871 Putnam Co. In.
m. Ellender Nancy Black Moved from Wythe Co. Va. to Putnam Co. In. in 1837.
Joseph McCammack Ky or Tenn.,
m. 6-7-1832 Susanna Hurst Some of the older McCammacks said that he was a cousin of John and Thomas, but it is felt he is a brother. He disappeared after coming to Indiana, left his wife and children according to story. Settled in Putnam Co. In. ca.1830.
The source of this legend was Enos Allee, a great-grandson of Thomas McCammack (1785-1871).
As far as I know, none of the McCammacks or McCammack researchers have made a connection to the Cammack family so I'm hoping we can do that in 1999. I have a lot of data on the McCammack family to share.
