Any information that can shed some light on the John BONDE and the land he purchased would be greatly appreciated. The BLM casefile contained virtually nothing. THANKS!

Fhearghus  (Danny Floyd Ferguson) 97-11-01 10:25:22

I would like any information on Austin B. Ferguson. He was killed in a sawmill accident in Weston and was buried in Mosinee. He was a member of Mosinee I.O.O.F. lodge # 123, Arbutas Camp # 1383, M.W.A. and Mosinee Assembly # 69, F. F. U. The funeral services were held at the Episcopal church by pastor Joseph Conway. I estimate the time frame is between 1900 and 1920. I know this is quite a span but this comes from the little information I have of the time frame of his children's births.

This information is taken from a faded copy of a article from The Times,so I hope I've read it correctly. I have no dates or location of where the news paper is printed. Because of the title of the article I would guess that it is from Mosinee.
