Cameron, James (3)

Cameron, James (3), a Presbyterian minister, was born in 1816 at Greenock, Scotland.- He came to America as the representative of a British commission house. Mercantile life proving distasteful, he pursued painting as a profession. In 1845 he went to Italy, and on his return, in 1849, was made a deacon in the Presbyterian Church at Chattanooga, Tenn. During the late civil war he left the South, removed to Philadelphia, and finally went to Greenville, Me., in 1868. At Greenville he ministered to the Congregational Church for four years. In 1870 he was ordained an evangelist, and was acting pastor at Waterville from 1872 to 1874. He then went to California, ministered to the people in San Bernardino and other places, and died at Oakland, Jan. 5, 1882. See San Francisco Bulletin, Jan. 6, 1882. (B. P.)
