Subject: Re: John L Ferguson and son
Nimrod Thank you so much for the reply. My mother told me little or nothing
about her side of the family other than brothers, mother, father, her
grandmother, and great grandmother. The rest I got from census records, books
and information that other persons shared. John's daughter Alta, (we assume
that to be her name as some descendants used that for a nickname) was spelled
many different ways and we would really like to know the real spelling of the
name. We assume the odd spellings were due to census takers not being able to
understand an odd name. I will share what I have on my line and really look
forward to hearing from all.

John L Ferguson, born 1790 shown in the
1950 Pike, County, Missouri census with wife Elizabeth. Children are William
Ferguson, Sara Elizabeth Ferguson, John R Ferguson, Nimrod M Ferguson, Victoria
Ferguson, Lafayette Ferguson, and Alta Ferguson who married John Allison. She
was born 1828. Some of the children died young so have no descendants but
interested in sharing with any descendants of ancestors. Debra Cole From:

Allison in Pike County, Missouri. Their daughter Sarah Elizabeth married John
Freels and was my great grandmother.
