Virginia, USA
Death: Aug. 1, 1958

Youngest son of Zachariah and Margaret Willis (Rucker) Dameron of Amherst county, Virginia. Husband of Annie Belle (Hill) Dameron, who he married on Oct. 30, 1895 in Lynchburg, Virginia. They and their first child, Wallace, moved to Texas two years later and went into the ranching business. In 1907 he made his only trip back to Virginia, taking his family for a visit. In the fall of 1909 he and his brothers moved with their families to West Fork, Arkansas. After four years he and his brother, Sam, went back to Texas. Sam began farming near Mertzon and Cliff leased a ranch on the Concho River, east of Mertzon. Here the children grew up, attending school in Mertzon and then going "home" to the ranch for the summer.
In 1924 he bought a ranch in Val Verde county near Del Rio and moved his family to town where some of the girls taught school.
In his later years he retired, moved to the ranching community of Pandale, Texas, where he owned a small general store which served the ranching families in that area.
Cliff and Annie were the parents of seven children: Wallace Hill, Gladys Dameron Carter, Jacob Thomas, Lucille Dameron Ellis, Emma Dameron Hargrave, Zechariah Clifton, Jr. and Josephine Dameron Mills.
