.My 5th grgrandfather was John Michie, known
in the family as "Scotch John"(c1685-1777) who was deported to VA from Liverpool on the
ship "Elizabeth and Anne on 29Jun1716 for
participating in the 1715 Jacobite rebellion.

Scotch John may have been the son of Robert
Michie (c1660-?)and wife, Margaret Farquharson (dau.of John); and Robert may
have been the son of John Michie (c1640-?)
of Castletown, Scotland.

Scotch John and his wife, Mary ?, lived in
Hanover and Louisa Counties, VA and had 7
children: Robert, James, Sarah, Patrick, Wm.,
Mary and John. He became a large landowner &
in his later years moved to Albemarle Co., VA., where he died in 1777. His son, Wm., was
the proprietor of "The Old Michie Tavern" still located between Charlottesvile, VA and
Jefferson's "Montecello".

I descend from both sons Robert and James, who both married daughters of James Watson,
who was a friend of Scotch John in Scotland
and deported for the same reason on the same
ship. James' son George married Robert's
daughter, Elizabeth, and had a son, James, who married Louise Stoneman in TN and had a
son, Robert Washington Michie (1816-1902)who
married Elizabeth Dameron (1820-1897) in
McNairy Co., TN and had a son, Thomas Rufus
Michie (1856-1937)who married Lilly Reeves
Gordon (1863-1913) in Dallas Co., TX and had
Flaudie Lee Michie (1881-1967), my mother.
