German does not have a tombstone in this cemetery according to my cousin Carl and Nancy Thompson who walked the cemetery and recorded the stones since then I have added more from death certificate but there is no stones for them.

I visited The Ferguson Cemetery Aug 2009. To look for German grave there is a fieldstone marker on Nancy (his second wife her maiden was Massey) left that probably is German. It has his date of birth and date of death but no name is on the tombstone, as he died after Nancy death. German was my ggggrandfather.
