Loyl James Cameron

One of the earliest names encountered when starting my research was Loyl Cameron.  A cousin (1st cousin 2x removed) and member of the LDS Church, included Loyl/Loyal as the son of my great-grandparents, Donald and Anna (Cameron) Cameron in the LDS database.  I was excited to see my family included (this was circa 1987) and also puzzled because Loyl was born in May of 1900, and my grandmother, Beatrice, whose parents were Donald and Anna, was born on the 4th of July 1900. Clearly, Loyl was misplaced.  I wrote a letter to this cousin (she was in her 80's and it was 1987) and thought the matter would be quickly resolved.  Nope.  The cousin insisted that I was mistaken and that was the end of that as far as she was concerned.
