1. Richard Ferguson

This connection as father to the loyalist, Richard Ferguson, has not been proven.
FD- (=Frank Dougherty) RICHARD3 FERGUSON, (Thomas2, John1), was born before 1698 and was recorded on the census that year and

lived in Westchester Co. until ca. 1750.

He bought land in 1722 from John Gee of Manor of Scarsdale and was married by 1724 to Eleanor ___.

He came to Beekman and Crum Elbow and was possibly the man taxed in the latter Precinct from Feb. 1753 through

June 1767.

He was probably the man who was in Crum Elbow as early as 21 Jan. 1750/51 when he was given an ear mark.

John Ten Broeck sued Richard Ferguson in DC in 1750. [CP 16 Oct.. 1750].

He was most likely named for his uncle Richard Farrington who died ca. 1697.

He probably died ca. 1767, although the tax records could be for his son Richard Jr.; the list does not include Jr. in the

name.
Children: (none certain except Farrington)

i. ?John, b. ca. ?1712.

ii. Richard, b. ca. 1723; m. ?Rachel ___.

iii. Farrington, b. ca. 1725; m. Rachel Green.

iv. Elijah, b. ca. 1730; m. Ruth DeLong.

v. ?Rachel, b. ca. 1734? m. Arie bp. 6 Sept. 1719, son of Jonas and Blandina (Peerson) DeLong and they had children

Richard, Charles, Eleanor, etc. Their son Charles DeLong was next to Mary Ferguson, presumed widow of Charles

Ferguson, son of Farrington Ferguson, in 1800 in Beekman.

vi. ?Charles. Charles Ferguson, a weaver, was born 1736 in Westchester Co., NY and was in a DC Colonial Muster of 29

May 1761 under Capt. Peter Harris. He was 5’ 9” tall, swarthy with blue eyes and brown hair. He had been enlisted 27

April by Lieut Barber. Enos Ferguson was in same company. Charles Ferguson was sued in DC 14 Oct. 1760 by Halstead.

[CP]. We have not found anything else on this man.

vii. Jeremiah, b. ca. 1730; m. ___ Smith.

viii. ?Jonathan.

1S. Eleanor Green?

From the NET:
Richard Ferguson was born Bef 1698 in Westchester Co., NY, and died Abt 1767 in Crum Elbow, Dutchess Co., NY. He

was the son of Thomas Ferguson and Mary Farrington.

Eleanor Green was born Abt 1704 in NY.

Children of Eleanor Green and Richard Ferguson are:

i. John Ferguson was born Abt 1721.

ii. Richard Ferguson was born 1723-1725 in Westchester Co., NY, and died Abt 1791 in Prince Edward Co., ON. He

married Charlotte Rachel Farrington. She was born Abt 1735 in Westchester Co., NY.

iii. Farrington Ferguson was born Abt 1730 in Westchester Co., NY, and died Abt 1790 in Dutchess Co, NY. He married

Rachel Green 18 Jul 1754 in Duchess Co., NY. She was born Abt 1735 in Prob Dutchess Co., NY.

iv. Elijah Ferguson was born Abt 1730 in Dutchess Co, NY, and died Abt 1799 in Westchester Co., NY. He married

Ruth Delong. She was born Bef 28 Sep 1737 in Fishkill, Dutchess Co., NY, and died 1818 in Starksboro, VT.

v. Rachel Ferguson was born Abt 1734, and died 9 Jun 1811 in Beekman, Dutchess Co., NY. She married Arie Delong.

He was born 1719, and died 20 Jan 1798.

vi. Jonathan Ferguson was born Abt 1740 in Westchester Co., NY. He married Mary Young 17 Feb 1793 in Marysburgh

Twp., Prince Edward Co., ON, daughter of Henry Young and Mary Lisjer. She was born 6 Oct 1770 in Albany, Albany

Co., NY, and died Abt 1850 in Prince Edward Co., ON.

2. John Ferguson

12. JOHN4 FERGUSON, (?Richard3, Thomas2, John1), was probably born ca. 1710-1715 and came to Beekman with


his brother Farrington. John Ferguson was taxed in Beekman from June 1748-1773 and assessed in June 1748 at £1, in

Feb. 1753 at £2, at £3 in June 1758, £1 in June 1763 and 1767 and 1770, the last as John Sr. This man, John Ferguson Jr.

and Farrington Ferguson were all together on the tax rolls. Despite his presence on these rolls we have not found any

leases for him and think he may have been on the same farm as John Ferguson Jr. This

issue is a puzzle; John Ferguson took a lease in 1748 and according to available lease records he renewed the lease in

1772 with his son Gilbert, but Gilbert was son of John Jr.87 who did not marry until 1752. Men rarely if ever took leases

on farms before marriage so we have to conclude that the lease was transferred to John Jr. at some time. John Ferguson,

(no Jr.), had two children bp. at the Rombout Presbyterian Church. The dates could be for children of John Jr., only once

does the church record specifically note Jr. on a record.

John Ferguson paid wheat rents as early as 1749/50: he paid 13 bushels on 23 March 1749/50, 20 bushels 1st of May

1751 and 18 bushels April 1752. John Ferguson Sr. was a Schenk store customer and on 29 Sept. 1764 he paid part of his

bill with 38 pounds of veal at 3s and 7 pounds of butter for 17 shillings. He also charged sundries in Aug. 1765 and June

and August 1767 and paid with butter Jan. 1766 and cash in full March 28 1767. [Schenk Store Ledger ‘B’ 117].

John Ferguson’s name was dropped from the tax roll in 1773 and then the Jr. was dropped from John Ferguson Jr. We

can assume he died that year.

We list children for John (no Jr.) Ferguson but they may be children of John Ferguson Jr. The others were involved in

various ways with each other.
