From: Boyles family 
I have information that has thousand of names of Ferguson desendants in
it. It starts in Stoke County NC with John Ferguson and Johanna ( Hanna)
Petree Ferguson.  John was born ca. 1768.  These names were compiled by
a person in Texas who was a Stokes County, NC Ferguson desendant.  I am
willing to do look ups.

John Ferguson is presumed to have boarded the ship Ulysses about August
1774 , as a single lad of 19.  He boarded at Greenock, Scotland and was
from Kintyre or Islay.  He landed in Wilmington, NC  and settled in 
Stokes County, NC.  Any Fergusons connect from the home country?
Joyce Holland Boyles, Germanton, NC

I remembered your name.  I am Joyce ( Jo Beth ) Holland Boyles from
Germanton, NC.  In the past , I have sent you  information on the Stokes
County Boyles.  Is the John Ferguson that your looking for from Stokes

I do not have any of your names ( I do think )  I have a Ferguson Book that starts with John and Hanna Petree Ferguson who settled in Surry/Stokes County.  Do you connect to this group?  I have a web site and when I get it working correctly I hope to publish some of my Ferguson line. Joyce Holland Boyles  connected surnames - Ferguson - Boyles - Holland I have over 160 page of names desended from this Stokes County line.  As time permits I will put a page on the forum.  Please understand that this may contain errors.  It is a document from 1973 that has been handed down to my family.   John Ferguson -  Eleazer Ferguson - Curry Ferguson - - John Ferguson - Willam Ferguson William Ferguson born 2/28/1865 died 6/1/1938 wed on June 12, 1892 to Hester Olive Wilson. Hester Olive Wilson was born 2/6/1868 and died 2/26/1894 of TB William Ferguson rewed 3/19/1896 on at train at Memphis, MO to Ida Corning.  They divorced. (or at least it says that in my notes) Children of William Ferguson and Hester Olive Wilson - Nellie Ferguson born 6/18.1893 and died 12/25/1893. Children of William Ferguson and 2nd wife Ida Corning.    Charles William Ferguson born 6/09/1901 in Chicago, IL.  He wed   Nell Ada Foster on 10/13/1933.  It looks like they married in Dallas   Texas.   - No children listed   Walter Neil Ferguson born 12/19/1902 and died 8/9/1906  - Chicago      Edith Ferguson 10/28/1905 in Chicago.  Wed 7/20/1944 to Merle       Fredereick Fuller.  Called Paw Paw.  It looks like they lived in       Porter Twp. MIch.    Please note:  It may have been that Willaim Ferguson married Margaret  Ann Ferguson as his 3rd wife.  It gets confusing when the lines intertwine.   Here information on Margaret Ann Fergsuon born 9/1/1864 - died 4/12/1916. Rewed 4th time to Lois Ethel Sayres at Mt. Pleasant, IA. She was born 4/18/1879 and died 1/28/1964.        She rewed 2/12/1949 to David S. Bowie in Watsonville, CA.

If this link takes you to the bottom of my page, hit your back button
and it should take you to the Ferguson line.  Someone had an inquiry
about a Ferguson who lived in MO.  and had roots in the Carolina's.
Maybe this link will help you.  Check back ofter as I hope to have a
picture of the John Ferguson farm and also a spinning wheel that he made
included in our web page.
