Wow thank you.
Not sure if the last information is my family, but the Christian names are all very familiar, maybe I would have to see the census for the families to cross reference.

Joan Ferguson is living at 55 Piccadilly street in Barony in 1851 as head of family with Alex, Catherine, Hugh and Joan. Catherine is a french polisher, Hugh is a cabinet maker and Alex is a painter journeyman.
Colin Ross is a painter journey man living at 7 Piccadilly street, Barony in 1851.
Is this too much of a coincidence? Or were there migrations of families between Greenock and Barony who had painters amongst them?

Joan Ross Ferguson died in 1878 aged 73.
She was the widow of Robert Ferguson, contractor.
Her parents were John Ross & Catherine Campbell.
I don't think she is related to Colin Ross (but I could be wrong).

Maybe cousins?
Colin and Mary Ann's parents were Colin and Julianne Smith.
Colin's parents were Alexander and Catherine Black, so the Alexander pops up again, although I know it was a popular name...

Perhaps they are cousins.
Here are a few Ferguson painters in Greenock.

The Robert Ferguson who died in 1866 is definitely a relative, but not too sure about the others!! I suppose there is a good chance though
