Ferguson, Samuel
(1808 - 9 DEC 1889)
Samuel Ferguson passed away last Monday morning at 3 o'clock, and was buried Tuesday afternoon, Rev. J. D. Brothers officiating. Mr. Ferguson came here (Clark County) in 1845, and in the 50's returned to Pennsylvania, where he married, and came back and settled here. His wife died a year ago. She was a widow when she married Mr. Ferguson, and was the mother of C. F. Bone, editor of the Rice Lake Times. Mr. Ferguson was not married the second time, as has been announced. Harry Ferguson and Mrs. Emma Brainard are children of the later. Mr. Ferguson and James Ferguson, formerly a citizen of here, but now of Tacoma, Wash., is a nephew.
Mr. Ferguson witnessed the building up of Neillsville on a spot that was but a wilderness when he came here. He was a man respected by all, and lived to a ripe old age.
