Richard, some of the best information I have is from Raymond W. Ryan, Jr's posts on the Carmichael Family Genealogy Forum.He gives some pretty convincing dates.I have made a time-line based on information that I have gleaned.I HAVE NOT PROVEN these dates myself.However, the organization of them has been helpful to me.See what you think:
