Charles Fergussen
« on: Saturday 04 February 17 04:23 GMT (UK) »
Looking for Charles or Charlie Ferguson. Very little information about this individual. I know he was in the Stirling area in the Sth Island circa 1930s and was working on a chicory farm.I believe he left the area about 1938 to 39. We are assuming he may have been late teens 18 yrs to perhaps late 20s .He may have left the area and gone to war. I am aware that info here is very very limiting but any clue could be of help. Thanks  Hereford

Hi hereford

*  Perhaps you could tell why you are looking for this man  ??

*  Where does he fit in  ??      **  Do you know of his family  ??

*  How exactly is it that you know he worked in Stirling area  ??

*  How do you know he worked on a chicory farm  ??

Nothing to do with your man, but a birth announcement [1930] which mentions "Chicory Farm", Stirling.

Hi Hereford
If you google Auckland Online Cenotaph it gives a list (not complete) of those who served and some details with the occasional photo. There was a Charles listed from Gisborne. It looks like he signed up around 1940 as he's listed as single. But as in everything it's all in the spelling. Good luck.
