James Cameron Ancestry Tour of Scotland. This gravestone can be found within the old burial ground at Scone Palace, Perthshire, Scotland. Erected by Jessie Cameron in memory of her grandparents, James Cameron and Jean Nelson, also her brother James, Boot Merchant, Carnoustie, who died while on a visit to Scone, 1st August 1888, aged 47 years.

Located just North of Perth, Scotland, Scone Palace is the family home of the Earls of Mansfield. Despite its historic setting, the Palace we see today was only built in 1802 by English architect William Atkinson, who went on to create Abbotsford for Sir Walter Scott.
