Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (F)
Ferguson, Daniel

Daniel Ferguson fought in the Battle of Dunbar in 1650 on the side of the Royalists against Cromwell.  Daniel was captured and sent to New England on the ship UNITY and settled in Kittery, Maine around 1656.  Starting with Daniel, five generations of Fergusons lived in and around Kittery and Berwick, Maine.  In my family tree are the following:

Daniel Ferguson m. Mary -----
