Samuel FERGUSON, a farmer, born about 1838, Stirling, Scotland, married Elizabeth STURGEON at Papakura, NZ and died Nov 7 1907 in Pukekohe East, NZ. He was buried in Bombay New Zealand. His parents are Samuel FERGUSON, a mason, and Mary CARMICHAEL. Came to NZ about 1867. He had five sons and a daughter living at time of death; eldest was 29 so he must have married about 1877.

As an aside, my maternal lineage includes Walter FERGUSSON who married Helen McKENZIE in Milliganton, Dumfriesshire on 28 Dec 1824. It is highly likely that the earliest ancestor was William FERGUSSON, born 20 May 1764 at Cummertrees, Dumfriesshire who married Janet HERKNESS born 5 Dec 1768.
