I'm hoping someone maybe able to help or be connected to the same clan. I'm looking for further information on the following children of Duncan Ferguson born abt 1796 believe in Grennock, Renfrewshire and Mary J. Adair born abt Nov 29 , 1801 in Gartnatra , Argyll.

1st child ) Alexander Ferguson born July 16th , 1824 Kilmeny , Argyll, Scotland - he emigrates to Canada (Simcoe County, Ontario) then heads to Michigan, USA and marries Margaret Ellen Brice or Bryce (marriage is July 1852 in Michigan) . He dies in 1892 in Bessemer, Gogebic, Michigan

2nd child) Archibald born Nov 1 1827 in Kilmeny , Argyll, Scotland

3rd child) Anne born June 22 1830 in Kilmeny , Argyll, Scotland

4th child) John born March 18, 1831 in Kilmeny , Argyll, Scotland

Family ends up in Geenock, Renfrewshire , Scotland according to 1841 census and then some emigrate to Canada living in Simcoe County. There are other children that were born in Renfrewshire. Donald being the youngest

Other surnames that appear to be connected are Wright, Weir, Buchanan to Ferguson side
McAlpin, Wilson, Stewart to Adair side
Once in Canada the other surnames connected are Currie , McArthur , Bryce to Ferguson

Thank you Greg Ferguson (
