Subject: [FERGUSON-L] John James Ferguson of Pittsylvania Co, VA
>From the Desk of Nancy L. Abbott
Am looking for further information of a John James Ferguson, bc 1840 in
Augusta, GA who m. (1) Jane Walden, b c1844 in Randolph City, NC on 10 Jun
1866 in Pittsylvania Co, VA. He was the son of Wiley & Frances Ferguson.
He m. (2) a Martha F Abbott (15 May 1862 in Pittsylvania Co, VA-aft 27 Sep
1905) on 16 Dec 1888 in Pittsylvania Co, VA.
He was divorced from Jane before he m. Martha.
Martha was my g g'father's sister so am anxious to find out more about John J.
Ferguson and if he & Martha had any children.
I happened to have a copy of Clement's book so checked these out myself. Alas,
they're are too early (1700's) whereas the Ferguson I am looking for was born
in 1843. His father was Wiley Ferguson which may help somewhat.
John James Ferguson, son of Wiley & Frances Ferguson, aged 23 m. 10 Jun 1866
in Pittsylvania Co, VA to Jane (Walden) Hodges, aged 22. He divorced her and
m. Sarah F. Abbott on 16 Dec 1888. I need to find out John & Sarah's
descendants. On his marriage license to Sarah, it says that he was born in
Augusta, GA but I have seen other reports where it says he was born in NC so
this might be a request for VA-NC-GA Fergusons
