Subject: [Ferguson] Roll Call
I am looking for any Ferguson line from NJ in the years 1857-present day. My
William Ferguson m. Jane Ann KEETCH in NJ Somerset Co., 1857 under the name
of FULKERSON. Somewhere in the time between then and 1870 the name changed
to Ferguson. William and Jane had 6 children: Alice, William, George,
Samuel, James and Jane. Births between 1863 and 1874. They lived in Union
Co., town of Summit in 1870, also lived several years in Elizabeth, Union
Co., with Jane as a widow with the children. She later married an ECKHART.
Alice m into the NEVIUS family., and upon widowhood, m into the BOWERS
I am descended from the William line and he married Anna Augusta WOODWARD in
Elizabeth. Ferguson's have lived in the Elizabeth and Union Co. area for
nearly 100 years but I do not find any descendants other than my own line.
Any Help out there?

"I have since found that my Ferguson family originated in about 1870 or thereabouts or shortly thereafter when my William FULKERSON changed his name to William Ferguson. He and his family and children, Alice, William George, and Samuel together with his wife Jane (Keetch) Fulkerson appeared in the 1870 NJ (Summit, Union Co.) census. They appear in the city directory of Elizabeth, Union Co., NJ as William and Jane Ferguson and family withthe same children and again in 1880 she appears as a widow of William, with 2 additional children James and Jane."
"So-o-o-o If you run across someone who has a stumper with one of these children and cannot find them any further back, this is who they really were. No definite proof (i.e. birth certs, etc.) yet but just now discovered it. "
Wish me luck

No one seems to have mentioned the following Ferguson family.
`This family lived in Elizabeth, Union Co. NJ in 1880.
Jane (Keetch) Ferguson widow of William b. 1850
George W. b. 1864 ca 19
Samuel A b 1868 ca 16
James H. b 1871 ca 14
Jane (or Emma Jane) b 1874 ca 6
Widow Jane and children lived on Erie St, Elizabeth, Union Co., NJ in 1877.
Believe that was when husband William died.
Any later connections with this family Did none of the children marry and
have families? Help ! !
