Summary
Holograph autobiography, diary, and notebook containing speeches, council meeting minutes, and journal additions. Ferguson writes about his ancestors, early life, education, and his conversion to the Mormon Church in 1844. His diaries cover the years 1852-55 and 1879-80 while serving as a missionary in Scotland. Many entries are lengthy and detailed, but there are several gaps. Ferguson made the overland journey from Atchison, Kansas to Salt Lake City in 1855, and writes briefly of travelling conditions, preparation for the journey west, and company organization. His wife delivered a baby boy twenty miles from Fort Laramie, Wyoming. Ferguson also writes extensively about life in Utah
