Subject: [Ferguson] Sound Off - John R Ferguson, Juniata County, PA
My research into my family has yielded these results:
John R(obin?) Ferguson, born 7 July 1811 in Greenwood Township, Juniata
County, Pennsylvania. He married Lydia Ream on 14 June 1836, and died 7 June 1896
in the same area of gangrene. They had 10 children: Isaac (my
gg-grandfather), Mary (Motter), Sarah (Haubert), Joseph, John J, Wesley W, Emma (Cox),
Elizabeth J (Mendenhall), Andrew R, and Wilson. According to the 1880 Census, his
mother was from New Jersey, and his father was from England
In correspondence with Victoria Thompson, formerly of North Pole, Alaska, (if
I can find her, it would be great hearing from her again!), John R may have
been in the family of William and Anna Ferguson. Again, a large family;
Bathshaba, Andrew, Elizabeth A, William Barklie, John Robin, Grant, Joseph Kinkead,
Daniel, and William Wesley. Sounds like he lived in Juniata County around
1803, and also resided in Franklin County as well. He was Irish, born to Scots
parents, and immigrated in Baltimore, MD.
An interesting side note, in a book of early land surveys in Juniata County
archives, there is an 1807 survey of two tracts of land to the heirs of Jos.
Ferguson in right of Ferguson v. Leech c. which could be the survey for
William's farm, and may give us his Scottish father's name as well (Joseph?).
Anyone interested in what I have, or who can add, I'd greatly appreciate it!
