Looking for any information on this Ferguson family...

Mathew Ferguson (abt 1811 Ireland - 1883 Lanark Cty, Ontario) married Elizabeth Geary/Gercey?


Sarah Ann (b abt 1854 NY state - probably died Lanark Cty) 
          married John Cassell/Castle (children James, Elizabeth, Charlotte, 
          Maggie, Alfred, William, Maud, Mathew, Florence & Myrtle)
Robert (b abt 1858 Lanark Cty - died abt 1890 Lanark Cty) 
          married Eliza V Moss (children George & Thomas)
Mathew (b 1861 Lanark Cty) 
          married Rebecca Agnes Cameron (child Robert John)
George (b 1863 Lanark Cty - 1949 Brooke, Ontario) 
          married Fanny Ilan (children John, Thomas, Pearl, Morris & Ana May)
Elizabeth (b abt 1867 Lanark Cty)
William Wesley (b 1869) 
          married Mary Cameron (children Robert, Elizabeth, Ada, Bella & Ana)

I do not have a marriage date for Mathew & Elizabeth and am not positive 
as to when they arrived in Bathurst Twp, Lanark Cty Ontario, however they 
are shown in the 1861 census.  The family lived in Bathurst, South Sherbrooke 
& Maberly areas in Lanark Twp/Oso Twp, Ontario, Canada.  There are many 
Fergusons in this area but most are from Scotland, not Ireland.
