Genealogical and Personal History of Centre and Clinton County, Pennsylvania, 1912

Thomas Ferguson Biography

Thomas Ferguson, ESQ., was a resident of Ferguson township territory as early as 1789.

His deed from Samuel Wallis for the "John Webster" warrantee, where Pine Grove Mills now stands, is dated Sept. 5, 1791. He erected the first grist-mill at that place in 1800, and was one of the first justices of the peace appointed for Centre County.

From his prominence as a citizen and business man, and the fact that he was among the first settlers, it was called Ferguson.

He died in February, 1806. His daughter Susanna was the wife of John Barron, Jr. He left a widow, Elizabeth, and also a daughter, Jane.
