Relatives Of Catherine (Lyon) Ward Cameron & Alexander Cameron

According to an article* in the Detroit Free Press published November 22, 1896, the stepfather of Princess of Chimay and Caraman (Clara Ward), daughter of Eber & Catherine (Lyon) Ward, was ALEXANDER CAMERON.  Mr. Cameron died a couple of years ago and Mrs. Cameron a short time since married John Morrow of Montreal. 

In 1879 Eber Ward's widow, Catherine, married** Alexander Cameron, a Windsor lawyer and afterwards of the banking firm of Cameron, Curry & Co., of Toronto and Windsor.  Clara lived in Toronto until she reached the age of 14, when she was sent to England for school. the age of 17 she visited Paris with Mr. Cameron where she met her future husband at a diplomatic dinner. 

Clara was left a "princely" sum of money by her late father, getting about $45,000.00 per year (in 1890). 

The Princess, nee Clara Ward, of Detroit, was "a special favorite of King Leopold of Belgium."  "She has never returned to this country since her marriage."  (See Clara's biography).  Clara was profiled (with pictures and other details) on the blog, "Mrs. Astor and The Gilded Age" here.
 Catherine Lyon, daughter of Robert Bond Lyon and Clarissa Kellogg, was enumerated in the 1850 Census Ohio in Conneaut, Ashtabula, and also found in the census in 1860.

Clara Ward and her brother, Eber, were living in Toronto in 1881, with their mother and step-father:
