About Henry Cambron

"Among the most noteworthy of the Catholic emigrants to Kentucky in 1788, was Henry Cambron, previously a highly respected citizen of Montgomery county, Maryland. He was accompanied by his aged father, Baptist Cambron, and by a number of his brothers and sisters. After stopping for a few days at Bardstown, Mr. Cambron proceeded to Cartwright's creek, where he bought and settled upon a farm adjoining that occupied by John Waller, whose mill, built upon his land, was the only property of the kind in that part of the country. This mill, with the land of which it was an appendage, was afterwards sold by Mr. Waller to Rev. Edward Fenwick, and upon the latter stands to-day the church and convent of St. Rose."

"Henry Cambron's descendants are numerous in Kentucky. They are all of the highest worldly respectability, and better still, they are all faithful to the ancient faith of their fathers. One of his sons, Charles C. Cambron, died in the neighborhood in which his father settled as late as 1880. Another son, Ralph Cambron, was still living in 1878, a much esteemed member of the Sacred Heart congregation in Union county."
