Mederich Cameron

Biographical Sketches of Loyalists of the American Revolution ..., Volume 1 By Lorenzo Sabine:

CAMERON MEDERICH Of New York. His son Mederich, who was a Whig, fled from school, and joined the army as a drummer. The father followed the youth to camp, and succeeded in obtaining his release. At the peace, Mr. Cameron went to Shelburne, Nova Scotia. He owned three houses in the city of New York, two of which he demolished at leaving, and transported the bricks of which they were built to Shelburne, to serve in the construction of a new dwelling there. He died at Liverpool, Nova Scotia, during the war of 1812, at the age of ninety-eight. Two children survived him. The son above mentioned went to Nova Scotia with his father, but returned to New York.
