Unknown Cameron Much of the Scottish detail of this family is from a 1991 chart by genealogist Tearlach MacFarlane, "The Giusachan Camerons", passed on by family members. This appears to refer to the place name now recorded as Guesachan, on Loch Shiel. There is now a Giusachan near Beauly, apparently irrevelant.
They are presumably descendants of the MacMartin Camerons - see also Ewen10 and Saor trees.
