Good Deed For the Day
I always wondered about Robert Cameron's family and whether he had any descendants. Often, family papers end up in flea markets when someone dies without children or grandchildren, so I wasn't optimistic about finding anyone who would want these letters back.
Then, a few weeks ago, I was on Ancestry.com and, on a whim, looked for Robert Cameron — and found him! I emailed the person who had him in her family tree, who turned out to be his granddaughter. She was very excited to hear about these letters and told me that her grandmother is still alive and would love to have these back. I boxed up the letters and sent them off to her today.
And that is my good deed of the day.
