Ferguson's of Lissan Parish, County Derry
Hi - I'm looking for information on my great Grandfather Robert Ferguson (born: 1845 @ Ballybriest, County Tyrone, died 1939 New Zealand) He travelled to NZ in 1870, then to USA in 1880 where he married 'a girl (possibly related) from back home' called Mary Greenwood Bradford - she was 15, he 36!!! They returned to Ireland where they farmed in Lissan Parish at the base of Slieve Gallion in either Diran or Tullynure Townlands and raised 11 children over a 33 year period (including my grandfather Ralph (1888 to 1945). Then in 1913, Robert & Mary with their remaining 10 children imirgated to New Zealand.
Would love to talk with other decendants and swop information....I have quite a lot but always keen to get more!!
