Mrs. E. C. Ferguson

Lucetta Ferguson

Mrs. E. C. Ferguson was born Lucetta Gertrude Morgan in 1849 in Iowa and settled with her family in Olympia, Washington Territory when she was only 11 years old. Eight years later, she met and married E. C. Ferguson, who was serving as a legislator. Together they named and laid-out the city of Snohomish along with founding their own family of three children. Several descendants still live in Snohomish to this day.

Mrs. Ferguson's calling cardMrs. E. C. Ferguson’s calling card was found in the house when purchased by the Society in 1970. We imagine she was a frequent visitor to the Blackman Home. And frequent visitors to the house museum today will recognize the painting and piano in the photograph that are part of the museum furnishings.

Many objects were donated from the Ferguson estate. By the way, the addition of “Wednesday” in the lower left corner of the card indicates the day of the week that Mrs. E. C. will be receiving guests.

The photograph is from the Ferguson Family Album held by the Society. This image along with many others from our collection are now online thanks to a “Digitize Our Community History” initiative by the Sno-Ise Library System to host historical images in partnership with our Society.
