Welcome to the Carmel Indian Genealogy group. This community is in Highland County, Ohio ,close to Fort Hill and Serpent Mound where Ohio Indians resided.
This group is for the research and genealogy of the people known as the Carmel Indians of Highland County, Ohio and related families. Many of our families came to the Carmel Community from Virginia through Kentucky. You can find the Gibson/Gipson, Nickell/Nichols and Perkins on the Morgan County Kentucky and Magoffin County Kentucky census as well as other counties in Kentucky. These people have been known as the Carmel Indians but these families were also found in Hardin County Ohio as well as other counties in Ohio.
There is a lot of controversy about who and what the Carmel Indians are. Some people believe that the Carmel Indians are Melungeons. Nobody in my family had ever heard that word before I started my genealogy research. This site is for those who would like to sort out and get to know their families better. There is talk about the Carmel Indans no longer being a group. There are many of us still living here in Highland County, Ohio.

This site is for genealogy. We will not tolerate obscene language or bad behavior of any kind. Treat all members with respect.
