I'm looking for ancestors or relatives of my g-g-g grandfather, David,
who was born in Washington County, NY in 1799 and moved to Centerville
(North Syracuse) in Onondaga County, NY with my g-g granfather Samuel
Fergerson about 1826. David was the second child of a family of nine.
Most of the family settled in West Hebron, NY, possibly on Ferguson
Road. Family letters mention that a John W., David, Jim, and John
1822) all lived on the same road.
David's son, John (b. 1822) moved to North Syracuse in between 1855 and
1862. Letters between John and Samuel refer to an uncle JohnFergerson
who died in Washington Co in January 1853. The family name changes
Fergerson on David's tombstone.
