William John Camlin

William John Camlin, Jr. was born in Aug 1861 in County Down, Ireland (or perhaps 1865 according to Sarah Kees family bible) to William Camlin, Sr. and Sarah Bolton Crummy (or Grummy). William immigrated to America in 1879. He was later naturalized. According to 1900 census records, William rented a home at 854 Chapel Al., Allegheny City, PA. He was employed as a coachman.

During 1900, David Borland, listed as "partner" on census records, was living under William's household. (David was born in Nov. of 1876 in Ireland; immigrated to U.S. in 1898. Worked as a butler.)

William later married Agnes Robinson Grant. They had six children. According to heresay, William deserted his large family in 1909.
