Grace L Wright Ferguson was one of seven known children born to Samuel Alfred "Sam" Wright and Martha Ann Ward. She was born in Roane, Tennessee on October 13, 1897. It appears Grace lived her whole life in Roane.

Her siblings were: Frank Jackson Wright, Floyd Wright, Ruby Wright, Edith Blanche Wright, Maline Wright, and Dorothy A. Wright. Tragically, three of her siblings- Ruby, Edith, and Maline- all died in May 1914. (Ruby and Maline of typhoid fever, and Edith of dysentery.)

Though the reason for his second marriage is currently unknown (Grace's parents may have divorced or her mother may have passed), her father remarried in 1917. He and Bertha Mae Ward went on to have six children of their own. Though she most likely did not live with them, Grace's half siblings from this marriage were: John Jenings Wright, Ruth Wright, Margaret Elizabeth Wright, Nancy Wright, Alfred Wright, and Claria Mae Wright.

Grace married John Henry Ferguson on December 20, 1915 in Roane. Together, they had eight children: Ralph Edward Ferguson (who they lost at just 4 months of age), Earnest Howard "Fergie" Ferguson, Gladys Ferguson (Cotter), Geraldine Ferguson (McKinney), Willis Hubert "WH" Ferguson, Thelma Jo Ferguson, Betty Jean Ferguson (Hancock), and Shirley Jeanette Ferguson (Cook).

Grace died on March 27, 1987 at the age of 89. She is buried with her family at Willard Park Cemetery in Harriman.
