Fergusons NY, WI, MN Cherokee, Sioux, or other?

I'm looking for information on the Fergusons who moved from Oneida County (?), New York to Hartford, Washington, Wisconsin and then to Minnesota.

My GGGgrandfather was Charles Ferguson, b. 1803. His son's name was James Ferguson who was born in 1828. His daughter's name was Juliette Ferguson, b. 1859. Juliette was my Great grandmother. She was married to James Madison Porter in either Wisconsin or Minnesota. The had several children most of whom were born in Minnesota.

Juliette, according to my father, was full-blooded Native American, either Cherokee or Sioux. My grandfather, James Madison Porter, and his siblings looked like they must have had at least half Native American.

Does anybody have ANY information on this. If so, which tribe? I am not able to find any information on their nationality at this point.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Ifound a marriage record for James Porter and Julia Ferguson Nov. 7, 1878. Also curious if your Charles was married to Catherine. If so, I know of other children.

Hi. YES! Her name was Catherine. Vanderwarker. I would be VERY happy to receive a copy of their marriage certificate and also to get acquainted with these people.
