Ferne’s great-grandparents came to Indiana between 1802 and 1824. Ferne’s father, John Ethelbert, moved Ferne and the rest of the family to Lyman Township, Ford County, Illinois, and they were listed there in the 1910 census. When her family returned to Indiana, Ferne remained behind.

Ferne married a third generation American and they lived their lives in Iroquois County, Illinois, as farmers. She was extremely active in the Thawville Congregational Church. Her granddaughter got her love of walking cemeteries from Ferne, who traced her family history to the Mayflower.
