Ferguson Family from Campbeltown

Postby lfogo5 » Tue Jan 10, 2017 2:31 am

I am descended from William Ferguson born in Campbeltown in 1841 born to Hugh and Janet Ferguson. He migrated to Canada and then to the US in Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, and Iowa. I am wondering if there are any Ferguson descendants from my family line still residing in Campbeltown. I believe William had 3 brothers James, John, and Hugh one of which may have traveled to Canada with William. He may have also had a sister I do not have her name. I am planning on visiting in May 2017 and would like to meet with any Fergusons from my line who may still reside there. I was also advised to contact Angus Martin who may be able to assist. If anyone is able to provide contact information such as an email address I would greatly appreciate your help. Regards, Lori Fogarty

Hi Lori…, a belated welcome to The Kintyre Forum.

Well, it doesn’t look as if you’re having much luck in connecting with your family.
Please may I suggest trying RootsChat.

This is an extremely interesting Forum and it has a specialist section in relation to Argyllshire.
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/argyllshire/

If that doesn’t work, their ‘Common Room’ may have Campbeltonians elsewhere in the UK and they be able to help you.
Make sure to use the title ‘William Ferguson – Campbeltown’ to draw attention to your inquiry.

Good luck. :wink:
Yours Aye…, Iain.
