Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (C)
Carmichael, Neil

(B. 1797) He lived to be 86. He was elected as sheriff of Marion County twice, the first during a great depression and he refused to enforce collections by levy or by sale of property during this time. The collectors had him arrested and the sheriff ended up behind bars in his own jail. Throughout his incarceration of 20 months, he attended to business as usual though he remained in his own jail. He was known as 'Kindhearted Carmichael'.
