Birth: Mar. 3, 1744, Ireland

Wayne County
West Virginia, USA


"Samuel Ferguson (1744-1825) and wife Mary Jameson (1746-1827) are buried nearby. Served in Montgomery Co. Va. militia at battles of Alamance and King's Mountain. An early settler on Bluestone Creek, he gave land for Tazewell Courthouse in 1772. In 1804 moved here to Kanawha Co., later Cabell, now Wayne. Progenitor of the area's extended Ferguson family".

The marker is located on Rt. 152 at the northern end of Wayne, WV.

I'd like to find the burial place, I believe to also be in Wayne County, of his daughter Mary Jane Ferguson and her husband William Clark. Please let me know if you have information.

Note: Buried in a small cemetery on private property near this historical marker. Samuel & Mary's headstone is the only headstone in this cemetery, however, there are some other graves marked originally with only a rock.
