The "Biographical Encyclopedia of Kentuckky of the Dead and Living Men of the 19th Century" states that Rev. Archiballd Cameron was born in the Highlands of Scotland ca 1770, and was brought by his parents, John and Janet (McDonald) Cameron to America (Pennsylvania) when very young. settled in Nelson Co., KY near Bardstown in 1781. Collins, "History of Kentucky," states that Archibald was the youngest of 6 sons. Angus was one of them.

I believe that Robert, who died there ca 1805, was another but haven't found proof. Does anyone know the sons in this family?
