Infant daughter of James Bascom and Margery (Bell) Cambern.

On 12 Jan 1858, Margery (Bell) Cambern wrote a letter to her brother's family back in Tyler describing their surroundings as very promising, that they had already harvested a crop of wheat, and that "we have good land, good range, timber enough and good water." She goes on to say that she had seen only three white men since last August, and finally, to direct their letters to her family to Weatherford.

Margery says "we had a daughter born the twenty-seventh of last June [1857]. Her name is Flora Alice. She was a beautiful child, but alas death, that cruel monster, laid hold on her and tore her away from us. She died September the 19th. But, we do not morn with those who have no hope, for we know we have a child in Heaven." Though the letter had been written in January, there had been no chance to mail it. (This letter was found in the Cambern home by relatives, after most of her family had been murdered by white men and Indians on 18 Apr 1858.)
