Am regularly finding this family as Ferrie. All of the following information is based on fact; but family adds that they were fierce Roman Catholics. Of course, that could be inaccurate.Some (if not all) buried at Clove Road or Silver Lake in Staten Island (Richmond Borough).Family was concentrated there. Any help appreciated!!
