Ferguson/Bloomer - Belfast
« on: September 01, 2020, 02:20:35 AM »
Looking for more information on some family members - starting with Samuel Ferguson Born C1820, Death November 14, 1880, 58 Charles Street, Belfast.

Specifically looking for his wife, possibly Leanna, but the DOB for Leanna coming up doesn't make sense for Samuel's son DOB I have on record - Robert Ferguson Born 1840.
I'm also looking for any other children they had together.

Im wondering if Samuel was married before Leanna, or if I have all the names wrong. The only info I'm finding on Leanna is a possible DOB of 1829 which would make her 11 when Robert Ferguson was born...? So not sure if I have the right person.

I do not have a DOD for Robert Ferguson - he was married to Agnes Campbell, who would be the parents of Charlotte Ferguson (Bloomer) my great grandmother.

Hope this all makes sense!

Heres a small family tree...

Samual Ferguson - Leanna Ferguson (Maiden name???)
- Robert Ferguson - Agnes Ferguson (Campbell)
-Charlotte Bloomer (Ferguson) - William Bloomer
-Daniel Bloomer - Agnes Bloomer (Stephenson)
