If you go to my message #5436 on the Cameron Genforum, you will see that I cite a source that says that a Duncan Cameron was with General Wolfe at the Battle of Quebec. This was in 1759, during the French and Indian War...quite a while before the American Revolutionary War. If this was [POSSIBLY!] our Duncan, then he could have been well established in either NH or VT by 1777. I am by no means certain that the source I cited refers to "our" Duncan, but by combining bits and pieces from various sources, it looks promising.

Do you have any further information about Duncan Cameron? Any other children? His wife's name? Any details at all?

Did Mary have sisters that you know of? I have found reference to Rebecca Cameron and Nancy Cameron, from Barre, VT. One married a Noah Dodge [connection with John?] and the other married Philip Blodgett [who might be connected with the Dodge family in some way].

The only facts I have are from the death record of Martha Cameron Drury, my husband's ancestor, in Barre, VT, which states that she was the daughter of Duncan and Phebe Cameron. I have not been able to identify Phebe.

Do you have access to the sources you mentioned? I would love to get a copy of any info about Duncan Cameron from the Historical Sketch of Troy, NY, and/or Troy from 1764-1887. I don't have immediate access to those books. I tried Heritage Quest, but those have apparently not been digitized yet. I have seen the History of Fitzwilliam.
