Death Of Archibald Cameron

An excerpt reposted from my Detour Through History blog on 21 February 2010:

Mr. Archibald Cameron, of L'Ange Gardien, died on Aug. 26, after an illness of only one week, at the ripe age of 90 years and three months. He was born in the County of Lancaster, on May 20, 1808, and removed to Buckingham Township over 65 years ago. During the early part of his life he was engaged largely in the lumber business, but later settled on the farm. For a number of years he was captain of militia in the Ottawa district. Mr. Cameron was a lineal descendant of Sir Ewan Cameron, chief of the Cameron Clan, who was better known as Lochiel. His father, Donald, was born in Argyleshire, and came to Canada in 1802; settling in Lancaster County. In July, 1838, just over 60 years ago, Mr. Archibald Cameron married Miss Nancy McMillan, who at the age of 79 years survives him, though somewhat feeble. Besides his widow he leaves three sons, six daughters, 40 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren. One son, Duncan, is a resident of this city being an official member of St. James Methodist Church. Mr. Cameron was a man of integrity and sterling Christian character, and will be much missed by his family. He came of a military family, three of his uncles, Alexander, Duncan, and John Cameron, being British army officers. John Cameron fought in the Irish rebellion, and also in the war of 1812, in Canada, taking part in the battles of Chateauguay, Lundy's Lane, and Queenston Heights. Alex. Cameron fought in the battle of Waterloo, under Wellington, and Duncan in the Irish rebellion. [Obituary courtesy of S. MacMillan]
