Custodial history

Born in Parish of Kirkmichael, Glassary, Argyleshire, Scotland, Donald Cameron immigrated to Caledon Township, Upper Canada in 1819. He moved to Vaughan Township in 1824. The Cameron family descendants have since resided in various parts of Vaughan Township, most notably at Vellore, where J.J. Cameron established the very successful Cameron Road Cart Company. On lot 30, concession 5, Donald Cameron operated the "Vaughan Township Door Yard". The family was also present on lot 17, concession 6 (Archibald Cameron). The Cameron's were also major shareholders in the Union Telephone Company (Vaughan Township, Ont.).
