Albery Brooks Carmichael and Lula Belle Carter Carmichael were my grandparents. I am the daughter of Sherman Fryar Carmichiel (he spelled his name differently.) Sherman married my mother, Evelyn Lucille Pierce of Riviera Beach, Florida. He died in 2002 in Florida. Mom is still living in Lake Worth, Florida. They had four children, James Robert Carmichiel, Donald Leon Carmichiel, Brenda Lucille Carmichiel Caldwell and Virginia Kay Carmichiel (Matthews).
Regarding Carter Brooks Carmichael, we called him "Uncle Brooks." He served in WW2 and was a prisoner in the Bataan Death March. Due to injuries he sustained as a POW, he spent many years in a series of VA hospitals in Texas and Oklahoma until his death in the 1990s, I believe.
I would love to hear from any of my long lost relatives, especial Luanna Gray (daughter of Dalton Carmichael (son of Albery Brooks Carmichael by his first wife).
