His name was David McMurrin/Murrain/Murrian - not David McMichael.He is my gggg-grandfather!
David was married to Mary Kimbrough, daughter of William and Mary Gracey Kimbrough.David is mentioned in William's proved 1803 Will in Greene County, GA and not Mary (his daughter) as she is presumed dead.
David was born in 1742 (presumably in VA) and died in 1846 (most likely in Newton County, GA)He was the son of David & Margaret Unknown McMurrin who emigrated from Great Britain and arriving in VA in 1735.
Don't know who your David McMichael is - good luck sorting it out!

note:Apparently there were two groups of people in these logs.David McMurrin fits in the second group into which these importees fall is that designating groups of people "immediately imported into this colony" from overseas.The certification of their arrival may have been part of the legal apparatus by which limits of their servitude were to be reckoned.
