I have been tracing my Michael family origins for years, and believe our branch originated in Appinshire, Scotland (sept of the Stewarts of Appin). Donald Carmichail amd Christian Carmichael came on the same ship in 1775 as servants to their Stewart kin. NC census (1790) shows name as "Carmichael", but 1810 census shows "D. Kerr Michael" . . . seems to be Michael ever since. Subsequent family marriages to other Highland families (McCorkle, sept of Clan Gunn), etc. Family seems to have moved from NC to TN, then my father's branch to northern AL. Have been having trouble clearly establishing all links to emigration in 1775, but feel confident am on right track. Regards, Steve Michael
