Hello Chris - Have your seen the book:
Clear To America by Titanic & Beyond. ISBN 0-9531539-0-8. Limited
It is full of information on Clear Cameron. There is a copy for sale on Amazon at the moment.
Cheers

Brian

Yes thanks Brian, it was my Great Uncle Ted who wrote it and I have a copy. Unfortunately he died not knowing what had happened to his Aunt Clear.

@ Chris Gilbert:
I am so happy to have more information about Clear. In 1999, Ted and Dinah contacted my cousin, Heath McCawley Porter and through her me, because our grandmother, Mrs McCawley, was Clear's employer in Haverford (Philadelphia)and Clear refers to my mother, Eleanor McCawley, the youngest child, in at least one letter in the book that Ted and Dinah so lovingly put together.
We tried to find out more about what had happened to Clear, but my grandmother and all three of her children had died by the time the Dowdings made contact. I guess we may be the American family referred to by Irene Cameron.
I enjoyed lovely exchanges with Ted before he died. I wish I had met him in person.
I would love to have more information if there you have any. Clear has become a member of our family lore!

Thank you Diana. I will send you an E-mail. I have so far found Clear's husband's WWI Pension record and therefore details of their addresses up to the late 20s and then from the 30s he appears in the phone book. I also have a copy of his will and their death certificates. Unfortunately the cost of getting their Philadelphia marriage certificate turned out to be a bit more than I was willing to pay just now.
