William Ferris - Belfast & NYC
Posted by: Brad Warden (ID *****9312) Date: January 19, 2009 at 20:03:42

I am wondering whether anyone has any information concerning William Ferris, presumably born in Norther Ireland. The only information I have is that he married Sarah Jane Cosgrove (or Cosgrave) and had a child in New York City (William, born 1888). It appears that the family moved (back) to Belfast, where William Snr. died around 1891. Sarah and the son, William, then left for England. Sarah remaried (Greathead), and William married Sarah Ballard in Bolton, Lancs. Eventually, they would all emmigrate to Hamilton/Dundas Ontario.
