The above headline is from a cover story in Syracuse Post-Standard Neighbors North Section on August 11, 1988. It told of how the Fergerson family has kept track of its ancestors. Normally not an easy task, the Fergerson story is unique because the family has lived on the same North Syracuse land for six generations.
As one of the pioneering families of the area and having a rich history, the Fergersons hold a deep appreciation for the community. The family actively participates in charting North Syracuse's future growth and development. Alfred E. Fergerson was named North Syracuse's "1992 Man of the Year" for his community involvement and in 1993 was placed on the CNS High School's Wall of Distinction as a role model for youth. In October 1993, the Fergersons were named "New York State Family of the Year" by the Knights of Columbus for their service contributions.
It was at Alfred C. Fergerson's home on South Main Street where the family funeral business began. However, it was his son and daughter-in-law, Alfred H. and Myrna B. Fergerson, who founded the firm in 1948. The original location - now an historic landmark - is one of two casket selection facilities the family uses (the other is in the funeral home). The business has passed to another generation headed by Alfred E. and his wife Patricia H. Fergerson who make their home in this landmark building.
Still operating on the original Fergerson land in the center of the village, "Fred", "Pat" and "Bill" take great pride in providing a valuable family service in a pleasant home-like setting.
