Biographical history

Duncan Cameron (d. 1884) and Jessie Anderson (1822-1906), both born in Scotland, met and married in the California goldfields, where their first three children were born. The Camerons brought their family north in 1860 and settled in Victoria. Their daughter, Agnes Deans was born in 1863. Her expedition to the Arctic in 1908 resulted in the popular book, "The New North".
