OS 6" map, Lanarkshire, 2nd ed., (1912).

The tomb is on the traditional site of the old church.

Name Book 1857.

The original church of Carmichael, judging by a charter of Robert the Bruce to Sir James Douglas, stood considerably to the south-east of the present church.

The names St Michael's Well and St Michael's Bog indicate the site of the original church.

A Murray and G V Irving 1864.

The tomb is an 18th century vault, on a high elevated position. There is no trace of the old church: St Michael's Well and Bog were not located.
