Good morning everyone,

I am searching for the parentage/history of Lettice Ferguson born 21 Sept
1759 (possibly CT) died after 1808. Lettice married Ebenezer LEACH born
1756 Torrington, CT, abt 1782. Ebenezer Leach died after 1817 in NY Stste.
One of their daughters was Lorinda or Laurance LEACH, born 6July1785 who
married Sylvester SPENCER. Laurance Leach & Sylvester SPENCER lived in
Onondaga County, NY and had a large family. Any clues to Lettice Ferguson
would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Larose Wynne

Dear Jim, your query is the first I have seen with a Ferguson in Onondaga
County, NY & I was delighted to see it.  My Ferguson info is very slight,
but hope you will keep it in mind as you do your research and I will your
family data as well.

My source for this info came from a DAR application & a book concerning the
Lawrence Leach family of which Ebenezer Leach is a descendant:

Ebenezer LEACH born 1756, Torrington, CT, died aft 1817 in NY, married Abt.
1782 to
Lettice/Lettis Ferguson born 21 Sep 1759, died Aft 1808
Persis Leach (male) married Unknown Winton
Diantha Leach (female) married Unknown Daniels
Milton Leach (
Unknown (female) Leach married Sylvanus Story
George Washington Leach born 1 Nov 1783

Loranna/Lowrance/Loraine Leach born 6 July 1785, married Sylvester Spencer
born 1777, CT, died Onondaga County, NY abt 1841
                Charles Clozen Spencer born 1812, Cazenovia, NY
                James Spencer
                Milton Spencer born 17 Feb 1814, Cazenovia, NY

(I have land deeds for Sylvester Spencer and all of his Spencer sons in
Onondaga Co, NY)

Ebenezer Leach, Jr. born 26 Jun 1786
Desdemonia Leach born 20 Dec 1788 married Stiles Johnston
ROXY Leach born 1790 married Roswell Fairman

We have no info as to Lettice Ferguson's parents or siblings.
If any of this strikes a bell with your reseach, we would be so pleased, to
put it mildly.
