My name is Phyllis Ferguson, born and raised in Sandpoint, ID. Aug. 22, 1952.

My father, Phil Earl "Herb" Ferguson (have seen it spelled Fergusson) was born in Pocatello, Idaho, October 28, 1904 to

Ella Jane Randall Ferguson (07-27-1866) and

Philander “Phil” Ferguson who was born somewhere in NY. Ella died on June 10, 1941 in Newport, WA. She'd formerly lived in Bisbee, AZ. in the 20's but was born in Clyde, NY. the daughter of George Randall of NY.

Phil "Herb" died in Boise, ID. on June 16th, 1960 at the VA Hospital. Supposedly he'd been married prior to being married to my mother and had two daughters from that marriage. I never knew their names, nor did my mom (she'd dead now too). He had two brothers, Wesley R Ferguson and Leo Ferguson. Leo was believed to have committed suicide and is buried next to his mother near Sandpoint, Id.
