Not My Camerons In Lapeer Co., MI

Susan Cameron died 12 December 1899 in Lapeer County, Michigan, and was buried in the Farmer's Creek Cemetery in that county. She was born in 1842 in Blenheim, Ontario, Canada, to Robert & Jane (Graham) Middleton. Her father was born in England and her mother in Ontario, Canada. The informant for her death record was Robert Cameron of Metamora, Lapeer Co., Michigan.

Hugh Cameron, son of Colin & Ann Cameron, died in Lapeer County on 1 October 1898 and is buried in Farmer's Creek Cemetery, as was his wife Susan.

A daughter of Hugh & Susan (Middleton) Cameron, Jane B. Stechow, died in Lapeer County on 4 February 1907. The informant, August Stechow, indicated that she was buried in Farmer's Creek Cemetery, as was her mother. Jane was born 10 July 1871 in Ontario, Canada.

Property owned by Mrs. Robert Cameron as listed on the Hadley Twp., Lapeer Co., Michigan, can be seen on the plat map (ca 1921) here (Section 13). In 1899 the heirs of Hugh & Susan Cameron deeded their share of Hugh & Susan's Hadley Twp. property to their brother, Robert Cameron.

Don't know why the property is listed in the name of Mrs. Robert Cameron on the plat map; Robert & Nellie (Reed) Cameron were both living in Hadley Twp. in the 1920 census with their daughter-in-law Merle (who was the widow of Nellie's son by her first marriage, Harvey Kramer). There was only one Cameron in the 1920 census in Hadley Twp., Lapeer Co., Michigan and that was Robert Cameron.
