GREEN FERGUSON

Green Ferguson was the son of  Henry Ferguson and Sarah Rives and resided in Chester County, South Carolina, USA.  He was a farmer and on occasion a bounty hunter.  He was married to Minerva Elizabeth Rowell on January 12, 1848, in Chester County.  She was the daughter of Jeremiah and Mary" Polly" Charlotte Sills Rowell. 

They look to have had twelve children, the first eight being born in South Carolina, with only four surviving to make the trip to Brazil where the last four children were born.  Green was a private during the Civil War.  After the war, Green and Minerva and their two surviving children decided to make the move to Brazil.  They sailed aboard the "Tartar" from New Orleans for Brazil in April of 1868 along with the families of Henry Farrar Steagall and James Miller.  It is also most likely that the Fergusons were well acquainted with other Chester county families such as the McFaddens and Gastons.
