In the fall of 1861 our subject enlisted in an independent company of sharp shooters, which was afterward credited to the Fourteenth Missouri, and still later to the Sixty.sixth Illinois Regiment. He was mustered out in July, 1865, after having rendered, with his company, conspicuous service in many of the most brilliant campaigns of the war in the Southwest, among which were the battles of Fort. Donelson, Shiloh, Corinth, siege and capture of Atlanta, and Sherman's march to the sea. Mr. Cameron was united in marriage, April 19, 1857, with Miss Sarah J. Woods, a daughter of H. P. Woods, of Dunkirk, Ohio. Of the six children born of this union five are yet living: Melville, D., Jennie, Harry, Alexander B. and Callen.
