He was buried 18326 in Crabtree Baptist Cemetery, Haywood County, NC. "The Ferguson Family: The Story of James Wiley Ferguson and Mary Elizabeth Jones" states: "But the boy, Robin, had now become a man and met and married Frances Love, who had come from her antive land, Ireland, a few years after Robin had played the part of the Good Samaritan at the Battle of Kings Mountain. Th ere is a legend about Frances Love that will perhaps add interest to the story . Frances Love was twelve years old when she left Ireland with her parents bound for America. On the way over, a terrible storm arose and their ship was driven southward to the Island of Jamaica. It was so hot there that the pitch with which the boat was put together began to melt. The wind soon changed and the light craft was driven north and landed, after a time, in South Carolina. Robin Ferguson and his wife, Frances Love Ferguson, left South Carolina in the latter part of the 18th century and located in what is now known as Spring Creek in Madison County, North Carolina. There they remained for some years, and later moved into what is now Haywood County a few years prior to 1800, and located on Rush Fork creek. In the cemetery of the Crabtree Baptist church, Crabtree township, Haywood County, there stands a monument erected August 14, 1926 by the descendants of the first family of Fergusons that came to Haywood county. Upon the monument is this inscription: Robert (or Robin) Ferguson, who was also settled here prior to 1800 was also of Scotch descent, having come from Glascard and settled first in (now ) Madison County, NC and later on Rus h Fork creek. He married Frances (Fannie) Love, a native of Ireland. An old f amily record gives the birth of Robin Ferguson as 1764, and his death as Febru ary 18, 1826, and Frances Love Ferguson's birth as 1768, and her death as Octo ber 16, 1858. It also lists the children of Frances and Robin as : Robert, Andrew, Thomas, William, Samuel, Polly, Nellie. 1850 Census York Co. South Carolina Ferguson, Ann Page 262 York Dist.
