Death: Oct. 26, 1915

Age: 76 y, 5 m, 1 d.

Alfred Cambron , farmer, P. 0. Ingraham, is a native of Lawrence County, Ind., and was born in May, 1842. His father, Charles Cambron (deceased ), was a native of Kentucky. Mr. Cambron spent his early life on the farm, and attended the common schools.

At the breaking-out of the late war, he felt that his country needed his services, and he therefore enlisted May 13, 1861, in Company A, Twenty-fourth Regiment Indiana Volunteer Infantry. He served through the entire struggle, not having been discharged until the 15th day of November, 1865. He was on detached duty all the time, serving most of the time as wagon master. The Government officers were loath to let him go when discharged, and he served in that capacity for four months as an employee after receiving his discharge.

Mr. Cambron is a member of the Masonic fraternity. He was married, May 20, 1873, to Mary Neugent. a daughter of Benedict Neugent. They have four childrenóLaura, Charley, Lula and John.
