  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Camon 
  full  of  stalks,  a  place  (Judg.  10:5)  where  Jair  was  buried.  It 
  has  usually  been  supposed  to  have  been  a  city  of  Gilead,  on  the 
  east  of  Jordan.  It  is  probably,  however,  the  modern 
  Tell-el-Kaimun,  on  the  southern  slopes  of  Carmel,  the  Jokneam  of 
  Carmel  (Josh.  12:22;  1  Kings  4:12),  since  it  is  not  at  all 
  unlikely  that  after  he  became  judge,  Jair  might  find  it  more 
  convenient  to  live  on  the  west  side  of  Jordan;  and  that  he  was 
  buried  where  he  had  lived. 
 
 
  From  Hitchcock's  Bible  Names  Dictionary  (late  1800's)  [hitchcock]:
