The Carmichaels of Minnesota
The Carmichaels of Minnesota: Surname List Our David is the second youngest son of David CARMICHAEL and Margaret [McLEAN] CARMICHAEL of Elmsville (aka: St. Patrick's Parrish, Digdeguash) of Charlotte County, New Brunswick, Canada. David's grandparents are: Parental - Dugald CARMICHAEL and Jannet [CRAIG] CARMICHAEL Maternal - Murdoch McLEAN and Susannah [DODWELL] McLEAN. David left New Brunswick to emigrate to the St. Croix Valley area of Minnesota, USA sometime during the early 1850s - just following the death of his father. His mother would soon remarry and move from New Brunswick to the state of Maine and many of his siblings were married and starting families. The Minnesota Territory had become well known as place to be for greater opportunity and prosperity then any of the other territories. Minnesota had built a tremendous excitement to those who want the American Dream. David's travels to Minnesota are still speculation, but we believe his younger brother, Daniel, followed him. David's Minnesota venture may have been initailized through plans of his Minnesota bound McLEAN cousins who have been identified through various Minnesota census records having settled in Anoka and Washington Counties. Following David's arrival in Minnesota, he soon became a major contributor to the growing lumber industry in the Washington and St. Croix County areas around the communities of Bayport and Stillwater, Minnesota and also that of St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin. David married Rebecca Harmon COX, daughter of Melinda [HADLEY] COX and Joseph COX of Indiana. Rebecca's mother was widowed very young and had been very well provided for, as a widow. At this time, we do not know what had motivated Melinda [HADLEY] COX to leave Indiana with her two small children which brought her to the Stillwater area, but once she arrived she became the owner of a thriving mill located in nearby Bayport. Melinda [HADLEY] COX re-married to a man named A. ? SECREST who was widowed as well and had two daughters of his own. Melinda died 12 years later, leaving Rebecca to care for her step-father, two half sisters and brother; and left her wealth to her husband. It is believed that SECREST made arrangements with one of his largest and loyal logging customer's, (you guessed it! - David CARMICHAEL), for Rebecca's hand in marriage, who was then 15 years of age. But! The Civil War would soon erupt and David would be one of the very first enlisting volunteers and was soon off to defend liberty and freedom as he understood it to be. David's grandfather, Dugald CARMICHAEL had been a Revolutionary War British soldier nearly 70 years prior, so with that memory, David went to battle fearlessly; proud to be the first of his lineage to fight and defend freedom. Yes, David's grandfather fought as a Loyalist for His Majesty's Umpirical Army during the American Revolutionary War, but only by persuasion not by intent; as his grandfather's only intent upon arriving in the New World, was to find wealth (for his family at home in Scotland) but soon after his arrival he was taunted (as many were) to join the British cause. Many recruits were told of only a short duration being involved and were promised land in the New World in exchange for their loyalties - of course, the land could only be given IF the Brits won the War and we all know how that turned out!
