Biographical Note

James Fergus, miner, rancher, businessman and politician, was born in 1813 in Lanarkshire, Scotland. He came to the United States via Canada in 1835 at the age of twenty-two. He was trained as a carpenter and a millwright at a Quaker settlement and was involved in building and managing various mill businesses in Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota. He married Pamelia Dillin in Moline, Illinois in 1845 and had four children: Andrew, Mary Agnes, Luella, and Lillie. He was one of the founders of Little Falls, Minnesota and later founded Fergus Falls, Minnesota. While in Minnesota, in the late 1850s, Fergus became involved in politics. In 1860, Fergus ventured out of Minnesota in search of gold and returned in 1861. In 1862, he left Little Falls, Minnesota with the Fisk Expedition to the Beaverhead gold mines in a territory that would eventually become Montana. He moved to Virginia City in 1863 and became a businessman and public official. He was elected recorder for the Alder Gulch mining district as well as judge of the first miners’ court, and was appointed the first county commissioner for Madison County.

Fergus had been away from his family since 1862 and was reunited with them in Virginia City in 1864. Hearing news of a new gold strike in 1865, Fergus moved his family to the Last Chance Gulch, which is present day Helena. There he was involved in ranching and was elected two terms as county commissioner and one term in the territorial House of Representatives. By 1870, he had decided to move away from mining and purchased a ranch in Prickly Pear Valley outside of Helena, where he focused on ranching and agriculture for his livelihood. In 1879, Andrew Fergus acquired one quarter of his father’s property, livestock and machinery and entered into a business partnership with him under the name James Fergus and Son. They purchased land in the Judith Basin and raised cattle, horses, and sheep in Armells, Montana. James Fergus continued his political career when he was elected as a delegate to the 1884 Constitutional Convention and to the Territorial Council, where he was instrumental in the creation of Fergus County. In 1895, James Fergus and Andrew Fergus continued to expand their business operation and created a family corporation named Fergus Livestock and Land Company, which grew to be one of biggest ranching operations in central Montana.

At various points, each of the Fergus daughters got married and moved away from home. Mary Agnes married Robert S. Hamilton in 1864, Luella married Stephen C. Gilpatrick in 1865 and the youngest daughter, Lilly Fergus married Frank H. Maury in 1873. Pamelia Fergus died in 1887 and James Fergus died in 1902. Andrew Fergus married Hazel Akley in 1910 and continued to ranch at Armells until his death in 1928. Hazel Fergus became the keeper of the Fergus family history and donated the family papers to the University of Montana in Missoula in 1969.

Subseries 1: Diaries (1855-1879), primarily contains brief notes about daily activities and includes details of daily expenses. Subseries 2: Incoming Correspondence, contains a considerable amount of correspondence between James Fergus and his daughter Luella Fergus Gilpatrick. Series III, Fergus Family Papers, Subseries 4: Gilpatrick Family, also contains letters between James Fergus and Luella Fergus Gilpatrick. In both series, many of the letters are fragments but provide insight into the daily life and activities of the Fergus family over several years.

Series II: Andrew Fergus Papers (1861-1927), is divided into nine subseries: memo books, incoming correspondence, outgoing correspondence, clippings, court papers, financial records, legal documents, ephemera, and licenses, citations and appointments. Incoming correspondence and outgoing correspondence are arranged alphabetically and the other subseries are arranged chronologically. The memo books primarily contain expense notes but are interspersed with notations of daily activities.

Series III: Fergus Family Papers (1851-1967), consists of papers of individuals and families associated with the Fergus family and is divided into seven subseries: Hazel Fergus Papers, Pamelia Fergus Papers, William Fergus Papers, Gilpatrick Family Papers, Hamilton Family Papers, Maury Family Papers and Odin J. Romunstad Papers. Romunstad was the son-in-law of William Fergus. Materials include correspondence, financial records, legal documents, clippings, speeches and writings, and ephemera. In Series III, Fergus Family Papers, the correspondence of James Fergus’s daughters and their families are represented. Of particular note is the presence of voluminous correspondence of Luella Fergus Gilpatrick to her father and other family members detailing everyday activities of friends and family members as well as local news and events.

Series VIII: Miscellaneous (1847-1964), covers a wide range of materials including correspondence, financial records, legal documents, speeches and writings, a scrapbook, ephemera, and family history files that don’t logically fit anywhere else in the collection because they are unidentified or the author is unknown. Although the materials in Series VIII, Miscellaneous, are fragments of documents or unidentified materials, many items contain substantive information about the activities of Fergus family members over several generations.

Custodial History :  

The bulk of the collection of James Fergus Family Papers (Mss 010) was in the possession of the wife of Andrew Fergus, Hazel Fergus Bubar, and her family until she donated them to The University of Montana in 1969. In 1996, local collector Tim Gordon donated three volumes of financial records from Fergus Livestock and Land Company. Acquisition Information

Acquisition Information :  

Gift of Hazel Fergus Bubar and family in 1969 and by Tim Gordon in 1996.

Processing Note :  

The collection Mss 010, James Fergus Papers, was originally processed in the early 1970s. In 1996, local collector Tim Gordon gave three volumes of financial records of the Fergus Livestock and Land Company and they were assigned the collection number sc 351. During re-processing, the three volumes in sc 351 were integrated into Mss 010.

At an unknown date, the Fergus Family donated a reel of microfilm of Andrew Fergus Papers, which was assigned a collection number of lc 172. A list of the letters on the Andrew Fergus microfilm was added to the finding aid of Mss 010, but the microfilm retained the collection number lc 172. During re-processing in 2006, the Andrew Fergus Papers on microfilm, lc172, was separated from the James Fergus Family Papers and is now Mss 635, Andrew Fergus Papers. The location of the original letters on the Andrew Fergus Papers microfilm is unknown. I

n addition, during re-processing in 2006, the bound volumes in Mss 010, which were originally listed in the finding aid together at the end of the collection by volume number, have been listed in the appropriate series in the finding aid.

A number of oversized items that were part of Mss 010, including licenses, citations, and appointments of Andrew Fergus, weren’t cataloged or described in the original finding aid. During the 2006 re-processing, these items were added to Series II: Andrew Fergus Papers, Subseries 9: Licenses, Citations, and Appointments.

Separated Materials :  

The Andrew Fergus Papers microfilm, previously numbered lc 172, has been separated from the James Fergus Family Papers and is now Mss 635, Andrew Fergus Papers.
