Roy C. Ferguson, D. D. S., a prominent dentist of Eau Claire county, with offices at Fairchild and Osseo, was born in Otter Creek township, Eau Claire county, October 23, 1880, the son of Charles W. and Jane (McCoubry) Ferguson, the father a native of Canada and the mother of Ireland. In the late fifties the father came to Eau Claire county and was the first millwright employed by the Eau Claire Milling Company. He later engaged in logging on the Eau Claire river for seven years, as a member of the firm of Ferguson & Waterbury. He then settled on a farm in Otter Creek township, purchasing 120 acres of land, which he cultivated and improved and there made his home until his death in 1901, aged 65 years. His children were: Luella, who married Benjamin Dighton; Ethel, deceased wife of E. H. Remington; Avis, deceased; Free N. and Roy C.

The subject of this sketch, Roy C. Ferguson, was raised on the home farm in Otter Creek, where he attended the district schools and assisted in the farm work. He subsequently attended the graded schools at Osseo and later entered the dental department of the Milwaukee College, from which institution he was graduated with honors in the class of 1907. The same year he commenced the practice of his profession at Fairchild and later opened a branch office at Osseo. The doctor is thoroughly up to date in all lines of dental work, and has built up a lucrative practice, which is constantly increasing. He married, November 27, 1910, Miss Blanche, daughter of Dr. Ever A. and Elizabeth (Ballou) Olson, of Osseo, Wis., and has one son, Marlin Nevil. The doctor is a prominent member of Osseo Lodge, No. 213, Free and Accepted Masons, and in politics affiliates with the Republican party.
