      Bob Ferguson was the son of John Ferguson & Mary Catherine Rombe. He was born in Toronto Township, Peel County, 18 Nov. 1855. He accompanied his parents and sister Mary to Mara Township sometime prior to the Census of 1871, most likely at the insistence of either his aunt Isabella Ferguson McPhee or his cousin Amelia Christina Giles Thomson, both of whom had settled in Mara some years previously. It was here that he met and later married Sarah Anne Lee on the 22 April 1889 at St. Columbkille's church, Uptergrove, Mara Township, becoming a Catholic prior to his marriage. On the 13 June 1944 he died at the family residence at Atherley and on the 15 June 1944 he was buried at St. Columbkille's Cemetery in Uptergrove.
