I'm in Canada and trying to trace my ancestors but finding it a bit confusing. I understand Duncan Ferguson married Margaret Wright and had a son Duncan (b) 1796 . Duncan Jr. then married a Mary Adair (b) 1801 and believe they had sons named Alexander (b) 1824 , Archibald (b) 1827 , Peter (b) 1833 all in Greenock Old or West , Renfrew , Scotland. I can't seem to find any information about the boys or their spouses and children or grandparents. They left for Canada and appear on the 1861 census but seem to have more children.
I rediscover Duncan and Mary in Canada from 1861 Canadian census in Simcoe Ontario but no indication of the boys. The 1861 census does list an Isabella (widowed) (b) 1829 also a John , Niel or Neil, Donna , and Donald.
Donlad is my great grand father and is suppose to be born in 1841 in Scotland to Duncan Ferguson and Mary Adair by listing of his marriage license. He passed away in 1921 in Simcoe, Ontario , Canada. Donald was married to Mary McArthur 1851 - 1937 and had children Mary Catherine (b) 1873 , Reverend Duncan Alexander 1874 - 1937 , Janet Elizabeth 1882 - 1924 , Peter Arthur 1877 - 1949 , John Archibald (b) 1884 , John James (b) 1885 - 1963.
Duncan , Mary Adair , Donald , Mary McArthur , Duncan Alexander , Janet Elizabeth are all buried in Knox Presbyterian Cemetery in Simcoe Ontario. Peter is buried in Winnipeg , Manitoba Brookside cemetery and understand John James died in Poertland Oregon.
Any information would greatly be appreciated and would like to connect with possible ancestors. So many first names are the same that it does make it confusing.
