Fergusons in Illinois, Montana and Wyoming
Posted by: Christine Hubert (ID *****4951) Date: October 10, 2012 at 14:29:55

I am looking for more information on James Ferguson and his family who moved from Illinois to Montana. Some family members are:
James Ferguson (b 1825 Scotland, d 1877? Illinois) married to Margaret Barnett (b 1829 Ireland, d 1880? Illinois).
One of their sons, William, married Lena Barton in Illinois and moved near Kirby, Montana and started a ranch.

I have the basic info on the family (census records etc.) and found some info in a book on the history of Montana published in 1921. I also have some letters written by William's wife Lena to my family.

I am trying to get as much additional information as possible (obits etc.) as we believe Margaret was related to my great great grandfather (probably siblings). If this sounds familiar or someone has any info, it would be greatly appreciated!
