I am researching the family of Robert Ferguson and Mary Orr of County Derry, Ireland. Their children were:

1. Robert Ferguson b. 1831 Co Derry d. 1887 St. Louis, MO
Married to Ellen Stanton

2. Ann Ferguson b. 23 May 1835 Co. Derry, Ireland d. 1909 Pittsburgh, Allegheny , PA. Married Robert McKay.

3. Joseph Ferguson lived in Allegheny City, PA in 1887

Robert Ferguson was a carpenter and stone mason in St. Louis. He lived there because he had uncles and cousins who were also carpenters and stone masons. This is a story I was told. I have no names of any of the uncles or cousins. When he died, his body was shipped to Pittsburgh to be buried with his sister Ann's family at considerable expense. I found this information in his will and documents related to his estate. Kind of odd.

I would like to connect with anyone researching these families.
