Sunday, April 19, 2015 Maggie Fotheringham Ferguson (1909-1987)

Maggie Fotheringham Ferguson was born on 27 April 1909 at 11 North Eglin Street in Clydebank to Peter and Sarah (Boyd) Ferguson. Her mother was from Ireland and her father worked as a coal lorry man. When the 1911 census was enumerated two years later, the family boarded with Mr. and Mrs. James Dennet, a couple with no children, who lived on 4 MacArthur Street in Clyebank. Maggie's father worked as a laborer at the shipyard.

On 15 May 1934 Maggie married David Riddell at the Radnor Park Congregational Church Manse in Clydebank. Maggie signed her name as Margaret Fotheringham Ferguson, but her father had registered her name after her birth simply as Maggie Fotheringham Ferguson. She was 25 years old, worked as a laborer at the sewing machine factory -- likely the Singer plant -- and lived at 8 First Terrace in Clydebank, next door to David Riddell's parents. It is not known if the couple had children.

Maggie Fotheringham (Ferguson) Riddell died in 1976 in Old Kilpatrick parish, which includes Clydebank.
