Group Sheet  F5853  Cameron Genealogies 
Notes  Tenant in Ross Skeen, Easter Ross
It is suggested (ref. IGI, not proven) that he left the Western Highlands after Culloden and the '45 uprising, then settled under an alias (McKeddy) in the more peaceful North-east at Dingwall, Ross & Cromarty. A similar story is attached to John24 family.

There is also a claim that the family descend from the Camerons of Fassifern (Ref: Chiefs of the Clan McLeod - "one of their ancestors, Donald Cameron, born in 1715 was second in command of the clan in the Jacobite rising of 1745"). Facts are confused but it is possible that Donald was son of a young John Cameron of Fassifern, not otherwise recorded.
Another branch of the family claims descent from Dr Archibald Cameron, similarly possible. From the two stories, descent from the Lochiel family appears likely.
