His obituary in the Free Press Standard, Carrollton, Ohio, Wednesday, September 22, 1880.

Ezra B. Cameron died on Friday, September 17th, A. D. 1880, at twenty minutes after noon. He was the eighth child and next to the youngest of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Cameron. He was born April 25th, A.D. 1853, in Washington Township, this county, making him at the time of his death twenty-seven years, four months and twenty-two days old. His parents removed to Carrollton in April 1863, since which time Ezra had been a constant resident of this town. His youth was passed in attending school, up to the spring of 1871, when he entered the Free Press office as an apprentice in the art of printing. He continued to work in this office until the summer of 1877, when his failing health compelled him to abandon his trade, since which time he has been wholly unable to engage in any manual labor. About two years before he retired from his printing case, consumption had singled him out as one of its certain knowledge that his death was near at hand, his naturally cheerful disposition asserted itself and he looked forward to his approaching dissolution with a fortitude and resignation truly wonderful. Life to him was not the less sweet and desirable, for none enjoyed the society of friends or maintained friendship with more pleasure than he; but when he discovered his condition, his own placid resignation to the fate in store for him, more than anything else reconciled his nearest friends to the fate awaiting him. It can be truly said of the deceased that he died without an enemy. The sunny brightness of his disposition while in health never left him, and never proved less attractive to his friends. No man made more stable friends, and none enjoyed the society or took a deeper interest in the welfare of friends than did he. He was married to Miss Hannah N. Moody, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Moody of this place, who, like him, early fell a victim to consumption, and died on the 9th day of December, A.D. 1875, closely following their only child, a little son about two months old, who died in October of the same year. Though scarcely beyond the threshold of manhood, he was called to pass through many of the trials of life that are ordinarily scattered through longer lives. He died in the full faith of a glorious resurrection, but few days before his death informing the attending minister that he was ready and willing for the change. He was buried last Sabbath afternoon beside his wife and child, thus, in the grave, reuniting a little family which the brief span of a few years had separated. The band, of which he had been a member, led the funeral procession and added to the solemnity and impressiveness of the occasion by playing a dirge. The esteem in which the deceased was held and the wide-spread sympathy his surviving relatives shared, was attested by the large number who turned out to perform the last sad rites of burial.
