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.

I take it that the Ferguson family of Doah/Parkgate is the family of James Ferguson (1826-1885) who married Elizabeth Wiley (1830-1916) daughter of Ezekiel Wiley?

The reason I ask is that I have just been contacted through Ancestry by someone who belongs to their grandson James Ferguson Gault (b1883) and wife Elizabeth Patterson who emigrated to Canada. I see in my tree that James Ferguson who married Elizabeth Wiley was the son of John Ferguson (1796-1834) and his wife Margaret Gault. From memory I think they were from Doah.

Cheers

Linda
