Gosh, it sounds as if there is a conflict between sources. I THINK it was the Gazetteer of Washington Co. VT which said that Duncan Cameron, of Barre, was with Gen. Wolfe [in 1759]. To me...that date would make more sense. The Gaz. said that he had gone to Williamstown, Mass. and then to Barre, which I think is wrong. He might have gone to Williamstown, VT, which isn't far from Barre. The Gaz. does not mention a stay in NH. Maybe there were several Duncan Camerons. I have seen reference to one who went to New York state after the Rev. War. I sure would like to find some supporting data for one or the other story.

I gather that you don't have any further information about Duncan's family...other kids, dates, spouses, etc. According to the Gazetteer, he had a son named Daniel. He just seems to disappear after the 1800 census, and I don't know if he died in Barre [per the Gazetteer] or elsewhere. I do know I did not find him or Phebe [his wife, per Martha's death record] among the death records or any other records at the clerk's office in Barre, nor at the Vermont Historical Center in Barre.

On the 1800 census, he was "45 or over," which means that he was born 1755 or before. By my figuring, if he was in his 20s when he was with Gen. Wolfe, he'd be in his 60s or older in 1800. If he was in the Rev. War, and was in his 20s, he would be only in his 40s. Hope we figure this out some day.
