Charles E. Cameron Born In Virginia

From the We Relate website:

Charles Edward Cameron...was a soldier at Point Pleasant, where his only brother was killed.

In New York, he [Dr. John Cameron, said to be a nephew of Cameron of Lochiel] met and married a widow, Mrs. Margaret Murray...who had two daughters, Sarah and Mary Murray.  ...came to Norfolk, Virginia, and there his two children [Charles Edward Cameron and George Hugh Cameron].

Charles and George Cameron were Colonel Charles Lewis's brother-in-law (married to their half sister, Sarah Murray).  Lewis County, West Virginia, is named in his honor.
