Captain Donald Cameron Killed In Action

From the blog, Malabar Days, is found the story of Helen Somerville Fearson who was married at age 15 to Captain Donald Cameron.  The Camerons were sent to India where [Major] Cameron (1754 - 1797) was killed in action.  Her second husband was Thomas Hervey Baber; there's a film featuring Mr. and Mrs. Baber (described in detail in the Malabar Days blog post).

This letter [1790] mentions Captain Donald Cameron.  An earlier letter [24 August 1788] stated that the author "...formed an acquaintance about these Days with Captain Donald Cameron (Glendessary) belonging to the Bombay Establishment...".
