James Ferguson of 8 Mount Pleasant moved to 5 Fountainville Avenue in about 1876 and died there in 1881.  He was buried in Balmoral Graveyard:

In Loving Remembrance of ANNE CLARK WIFE OF JAMES FERGUSON who died 13th May 1873.
And of his daughter ADELAIDE MARTHA who died 20th Sept 1875.
Also his infant son JOHN MACNAUGHTAN who died 9th Jan 1862.
The above JAMES FERGUSON died 17th Jan 1881, aged 81 years.
Also his son WILLIAM DEEBLE FERGUSON died 29th Nov 1936 aged 80 years.

I guess James Ferguson and Anne married in about 1840-5.  Id love to find their marriage to see if there was any connection to the Fergusons of Parkgate/Doagh, but so far Ive no evidence for it.
