    Micajah Burnett, (1791-1879), architect, engineer, surveyor and mathematician at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, KY. If you look back at old census books "Micajah" used to be a name you came across quite often, and seems to have died out in modern times. It's where we got the name Mekijah from. Not from this particular man but from the 3 "Micajahs" we found in the Clay and Harlan Co census books.
