At Point Pleasant, West Virginia

Lt. Samuel Vance. and George Cameron are among the names listed on the monument.

From the Historical Marker Society of America's website:

The day after the battle, the bodies of the men slain therein, together with those who died of wounds that night, were buried in different places; the following officers-Colonel Charles Lewis, Colonel John Field, Captain John Murray, Captain Robert McClennahan, Captain Samuel Wilson, Lieutenant Hugh Allen, John Frogg and George Cameron - being laid to rest inside of the magazine directly on the upper point of land, at the confluence of the rivers - now Tu-Endi-Wei Park

The West Virginia GenWeb has a list of soldiers at the Battle of Point Pleasant here.  Some photos from a 2007 Point Pleasant Days celebration here.
