Personally I'm specifically looking for male descendents of Charles or David McMicken.
Father: Charles McMicken born about 1710, Northern Ireland probably immigrated through New Castle Delaware but settled later in North Carolina.
Son: David born 1728, died 1777 Mecklenburg, North Carolina
Testing is done by swabbing the inside of the cheek for DNA material
If you have an individual that you would like to test that is of this name group please contact me.
