John A &Betty Ferguson in Ontario 1840s
Looking for information on John and Betty Ferguson born
about 1785. They had children Sewell, Elizabeth, William,
Jane, Aaron my GGgrandfather, David, Robert, Edward, and
Louisa. I think that Betty's real name is Elizabeth.
Just started doing some research on a KING family that might be related?
Joseph KING (of Yarmouth) married Dorothy FERGUSON (of Malahide) on Dec. 31, 1829. One of the witnesses was John FERGUSON. They had children: Jane (married James HANDY?), Angelica (married William PALMER), George (married Mary Ann CALCUTT), Sewell(Suel) (married Adelia STRATTIN), Orillea (married Robert HULL), Bettsy, Alfred (married Sarah DORCAS), John and Dorothy. They lived near Sewell FERGUSON in 1842 (according to the Malahide census (one line below Sewell's entry). I've had difficulty tracing this family beyond the 1860's, and was wondering if you've come across any of these names?
John & Betty (Elizabeth) Ferguson
This looks like my Fergusons. Sewell was b 1809 d 1853, was
married to Orille Cole of Yarmouth. My GGGrandfather, Aaron
was b 1822 and was married to Julia Hunter, Aaron and Julia
moved to Peck Michigan, about 1860. Aaron's death cert states that his parents were John and Betty Ferguson. I have
property records from Malahide Twp, Elgin Co. showing that
Aaron & Julia owned Lot 23 (south half) Concession 4 granted
from the Crown.
