Hello Ferguson researchers -
Would anyone have information on a Phoebe Ferguson (and various spellings?)
born abt. 1730?

I found a baptism listed in the Presbyterian Church of Poughkeepsie &
Rumbout:
"Richard Forgeson daughter Phebe 1759"..... I suspect that this baptism may
be a niece of my Phoebe,
and that the Richard probably  is her brother.... Phoebe's father may also
be named Richard. I have no marriage date for Phoebe however a baptism was
found in
Schenectady where Phoebe Ferguson and John Hagerman baptised their daughter
Jannetje
(Jane) in 1774.
Any help with PHEBE Ferguson, RICHARD Ferguson/FORGESON greatly appreciated.

Regards
Marg Hunter


Hello all you Ferguson researchers- I haven't posted in a while...(thought I'd give it another "shot"). In a photocopied page of Poughkeepsie Presbyterian Church Baptisms... I found: "Samuel FORGESON  bap. Feb 25, 1755 - parent  JOHN FORGESON" Would anyone happen to have a copy of the above book? or have any info on the above John Forgeson? Perhaps he may be the father of my Phebe. I am trying to find a Phebe/Phoebe/Femmetje  FORGESON/Ferguson/FARGUSSON. She would probably have been born abt. 1750. She married a John/Jan/Johannes Hegeman/Hagerman probably abt. 1767-1770.  I can find no marriage for her....nor parents.... I believe the item below is when they had their daughter Jane baptised.....Aparently there is no other reference to this couple in the Schenectady Reformed Church.... I thought perhaps there may be a ref. in the above Poughkeepsie Pres. Church Bapt. because on the same page there is a ref. to Tunis Hegeman bap.  August 27, 1756 - sponsor John Hegeman. Tunis was the brother of  John Hegeman who married Phebe.  "Schenectady Reformed Church Baptisms 1694-1811".  On page 178 : Johannes Hegeman        Jannetje                Peter Fonda Femmetje Fargusson      30 Oct. 1774    Alida Fonda I would be grateful for ANY information regarding Phebe.... her sibs, parents, marriage to John Hegeman/Hagerman, bap. of her other issue - namely, Tunis, Richard, Mary (Polly), John Jr., Zacharia, Sarah, Margaret, Abigail. Sorry for "rambling"....(trying to give as much info as possible). Regards Marg Hunter

Hi Bob: Would you happen to have a  Phebe/Phoebe/Femmetje Ferguson as either a sib of your Gilbert or daughter of John Ferguson and Aeltje Cronkhite? I don't have a lot to go on.....(and you didn't mention any dates) so.... it probably is a real "shot in the dark"... The Phebe Ferguson I'm searching for.... married a John Hagerman/Johanne Hegeman c 1770....They had a daughter Jane/Jannetje bap. Schnedacty NY 1774.....I am guessing that Phoebe was bc 1750...Having a heck of a time finding her parents  or marriage..... Any help REALLY appreciated! Thanks Marg Hunter (Phoebe is my 4th G Grandmother)

Subject: [Ferguson] George R. Ferguson - Capt. Canadian Fencibles light Infantry
Hi Ferguson listers...
Can anyone identify this George R. Ferguson? (parents and sibs if possible)
snipped from
http://www.warof1812.ca/capt_cf.htm
<snip>
George R. Ferguson was another officer who had shown an aptitude for
recruiting. In
the American Revolution, Ferguson served as a volunteer in the King's
Rangers, rising to
the rank of ensign prior to the corps' disbandment in December 1783,
enabling him to
collect half-pay. In 1794 Ferguson was appointed a lieutenant in the Royal
Canadian
Volunteers. As senior lieutenant of the 2nd Battalion, Ferguson secured a
captaincy in
1798 by paying a captain 100 to resign. This infraction was ignored because of
Ferguson's success in raising recruits for the Royal Canadian Volunteers.
This was
probably a determining factor when Ferguson was made a captain with
temporary rank in
the Canadian Fencibles in 1805. Because of his ranger experience during the
American Revolution and his expanded knowledge of skirmish tactics derived
from fellow officers in
the Royal Canadian Volunteers, Ferguson proved to be the best candidate to
command
the Canadian Fencibles' light infantry company.

Subject: [Ferguson] Re: Richard Ferguson..oops!
I should have the read the rest of the story...
He apparently was a Richard Ferguson with a brother Farrington... was
married twice.... firstly to a Frederica Grant... and possibly due to him
trying to wrangle his way out of financial arrangements... changed his
name to George R. Ferguson, then married 2ndly Clarissa Sherwood...
Anyone working on this line?...
I see by Reid's Loyalists in Ontario (p 256) that it mentions:
SHERWOOD, Reuben of Elizabethtown
Clarissa, b 1800 m. George Richard Ferguson of Elizabethtown. OC 25
June 1829.
Still looking for Richard Ferguson's parents and sibs... Any help?
