Looking for info on a James J. Cameron married to Emily (Druneau)

0 votes
Hello, I'm trying to research my family history. I hope this is the right place. I'm looking for information on my great great great grandfather James J. Cameron. Here's what I have so far:

James J. Cameron born in Scotland, married to Emily Druneau who was born in France.

Their son, James J. Cameron was born in Chelsea, England in 1870 or 1871. James married Caroline Bell Harley in Clark Co., Ohio, USA in 1903. I'm not sure when James immigrated to the United States. I have heard he came to Canada from England first, before coming to Ohio.

Caroline Bell Harley was born about 1872 in Springfield, Ohio. The daughter of Primrose Harley, born in Scotland, and Kate E. Shields, born in England.

James and Caroline had 3 children, the second being Harley L Cameron. Harley Cameron married Fannie Bracken. Harley and Fannie had 2 children including my grandfather, Lloyd H Cameron. Lloyd married Lessie LaCombe, they had 4 children including my father Ricky John Cameron.

Sorry if that was too specific (or not specific enough). My ultimate goal is to trace my paternal lineage back to Clan Cameron in Scotland. I am having trouble locating records from Europe. Thanks in advance, Lloyd Cameron.

Thank you so much! If you have any advice on how to determine which one is my ancestor I'd really appreciate it.
I'm drawing a blank on how to determine which is the correct one, but there are some other researchers on the board who may have some insight on how to proceed.

Did you ever find a record in England that had James J. Cameron had a

father James J. Cameron and Mother Emily? The reason i ask there is a

record his Father Is James Cameron born in Scotland but with different mother.

Perhaps James J. had a previous marriage before Emily Druneau?
