Meaning: (Scottish) Comes from "cam", meaning crooked or bent, and "ron", meaning nose, thus "crooked nose".
This line has been traced back to Ireland. Nathaniel Cameron was born on Oct. 5, 1777 in Ireland, and died July 9, 1861 in Greene County, Alabama. It is unknown as to when he came to America. He was married three times. The first marriage was to Mary Fell, about 1800. He then married Mary Ann "Poley" Bowman about 1811. His 3rd wife was Mezina Hale, whom he married Jan. 20, 1845. Nathaniel, Poley, and Mezina are all buried in the old Cameron family Cemetery on the old Cameron home place in Greene County, Alabama. I'm not sure of Mary's burial place.

Descendants of Nathaniel Cameron
Generation No. 1
1. NATHANIEL1 CAMERON1 was born 15 Oct 1777 in Ireland1, and died 09 Jul 1861 in Greene Co, Alabama1. He married (1) MARY FELL1 Abt. 1800 in Abbeville District, SC1. She died Abt. 18101. He married (2) MARY ANN "POLEY" BOWMAN1 Abt. 18111. She was born 1784 in SC1, and died 30 Jun 1841 in Greene Co, Alabama1. He married (3) MEZINA HALE1 20 Jan 1845 in Greene Co, Alabama1. She was born 1807 in NC1, and died 07 Mar 1877 in Greene Co, Alabama1.
Notes for NATHANIEL CAMERON: The name Cameron is Scottish. In the Highland Clans, it was a nickname -- "cam", meaning "crooked", and "ron", meaning "nose" -- or "crooked nose". In the Lowlands, it represented various places meaning "crooked hill" and was a variation of "Camburn".
Nathaniel Cameron came to America at the age of 15 (would have been about 1792 or 1793). He originally settled in Abbeville District, South Carolina, and came to Greene County, Alabama, via covered wagon, in 1833.
The story passed down through the years says that Nathaniel got into big trouble with the British during the "Emmet Rebellion". His stepmother owned a ship and hid him on the ship in a "saddle box" so the British couldn't find him when they searched the ship. As the ship got underway, however, he stood at the railing and waved to the British on the dock. The shipped sailed on to South Carolina. There has also been told a story of him swimming a river on a board trying to get away from the British, and also being "churched" because he rode his horse through the court house. He supposedly had red hair and a temper to go with it.
There was a thirty-year age difference between Nathaniel and Mezina. She was actually younger than his oldest children. He was 68 years old by the time his last child Ellen was born. He is buried in the Cameron Cemetery in Greene County, which is located on the old Cameron family homestead between Mt. Hebron and West Greene. His grave stone actually states that he was born in Ireland. Incidentally, two of his wives are buried there also - Poley & Mezina. Nathaniel's tombstone is aimed in the opposite direction of most in the cemetery. It is a very large flat upright marker, about 2 feet wide and about 5 feet tall. It reads exactly, "Nathaniel Camron born in Ireland on the 15th day of Oct. 1777. He came to America when 15 yrs. of age & died in Green Co. Ala. on the 9th day of July 1861, Aged 83 yrs. 8 mos. 24 dys." Note the spelling of the last name.
