Hello Deb,

A year later or years later on this site things still turn up.

We are looking at the same person for sure - Danial/Donald lived in all the places you have mentioned did all the jobs etc..you mentioned in previous postings.

My Donald Chisholm Cameron died 22 Sept. 1896 Mangalore.

How did you get on with the descendants of his sister...?

Cheers

Jamison

WOW!  How fabulous is that!  I double-checked and it was not the Eastern Chronicle but rather the Pictou Advocate which noted his death.  Jennie was his sister, and she died 20 April 1888, age 64.  Their mother, Jennie Chisholm Cameron died 18 Nov 1884, age 85. Hope the attachment is there...

Hello Deb
It worked and thanks for attaching it - just a bit confused with the date of J Ch. Cameronís death !
Iím not a direct descendant of Donald/Danial Cameron and there are no direct descendants.
He was married to my direct ancestor Jane Davis/Jones/Cameron they did have 2 children but died very young as there are no records of them found - still looking for them.
He was married to Jane for nearly 30 years and was a very well-respected step-father to her children from previous marriages.
Are there many descendants of his sister Jennie ? Where do they live ?
We should construct a timeline of Donald/Danial to put all info. together.
Regards
Jamison

  Verney Lovett Cameron was from  Weymouth, Dorset so likey not a relative, or at least not a close one..." he was employed for a considerable time in the suppression of the East African slave trade"
  Perhaps the connection to Nova Scotia may have involved researching British Loyalist slaves in Nova Scotia & the move to Sierra Leone   Sounds as though they found gold and concentrated on that misson...  All Praise the Almighty dollar...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verney_Lovett_Cameron  https://www.gutenberg.org/files/18506/18506-h/18506-h.htm
