In Reply to: Alexander or Moses Cameron by ericka doby of 767

I am researching my husband's great grandfather, Hugh Alexander Park. In 1850 Pickens and 1860 Tuscaloosa censuses there is an Alexander and a Moses Cameron next to Hugh A.Park. There exists [by word of the person who owns it and can't find it] a deed in which one of Hugh Alexander Park's sons buys land from Alexander Cameron.

These seems to be the same two Camerons you mention.

My problem is that we know Hugh A. Park was born in 1819 in SC--and are pretty sure it was in Fairfield District--we find no records to get information about his parentage. Hugh came to Pickens Co somewhere around 1845, and via family history, he traveled with the Cork family and there are some later intermarriges.

I am just trying to get a handle on the bunch who evidently traveled together. There should be an earlier Park who fathered Hugh who came, or staed behind, or was deceased.

I have hints and whiffs--but like the wind--no substance.
This is just if by chance you know more about friends and neigbors of these Camerons.

Also close by on census is John Robertson--either Horseshoe or kin to him. I believe he traveled with the Matthew Picket Smith bunch who settled in Greene Co.

If you can help me, great. If not, thanks for listening.
