The Descendants of My G-G-Grandparents DANIEL and NANCY McCORMICK CARMICHAEL
Nancy McCORMICK, daughter of Duncan and Katherine McCormick and my g-g-grandmother, was born on September 28, 1801 near Laurinburg, Richmond County, North Carolina. She married Daniel CARMICHAEL on December 13th, 1827. Daniel Carmichael was the son of Dougald Carmichael of Marion County, South Carolina. According to "The Highlander Carmichaels of the Carolinas," Daniel was born on January 8, 1804, however, census records from Alabama and Mississippi indicate that his age is the same as Nancy's, which would mean that he was probably born in1802. According to census records, Daniel and Nancy spent the first several years of their married life in South Carolina, probably in Marion County. They show up in the Autagua County, Alabama censuses of 1840 and 1850. My g-grandmother, Flora, was born in Alabama in 1839 and her older sister, Rebecca was born in 1836 in South Carolina, so they moved to Alabama between 1836-1839. By 1860, they are in Union Church, Jefferson County, Mississippi. The Autagua census indicates that Daniel's occupation was "mason." The Jefferson County census says "farmer." By the 1880 census, Daniel Carmichael is living in Karnes County, TX, along with two of his sons who have migrated there. Nancy died on January 4, 1874, but I don't know if she died in Jefferson County, MS or if the Carmichaels had moved to Texas before that time. Daniel died on November 30, 1889. I have been unable to find their gravesites in Jefferson County or in the GIllet Cemetery, Karnes County, where the other members of the Carmichael family (and the Fairlys and Dromgooles, who, also, migrated there from Jefferson County, MS) are buried. To the union of Daniel and Nancy, ten children were born:
Catherine Jane Carmichael was born on October 5, 1830, in South Carolina. She married Archibald McINTYRE on December 2, 1856, at the Union Presbyterian Church, Union Church, Jefferson County, Mississippi. She died on January 8, 1876. Their children were: F. C.; R.

In approximately 1900, Rebecca and all of the children, except Nancy Naomi, who had married in Waco, moved to Gillett, Karnes County, Texas, to be near Rebecca's brothers, who had moved there from Jefferson County, MS.
