Subject: [Ferguson] Roll - Nelson Co., Virginia
My Ggrandfather was Jesse Bernard Ferguson b. 1853 in Albemarle, Virginia and
moved to Electra, Texas. His father Samuel Allen Ferguson; his Gfather
Samuel, Jr. and his GGfather Samuel Sr. all stayed in the Nelson Co.,
Virginia area (Albemarle/Fluvanna area.) I wish I could find from whence
they hailed before setting foot on American soil. Samuel Sr. is our mystery.
My allied lines are Bernard, Mitchell, Barksdale, Bell, Terrill.

Subject: [Ferguson] Scotland Fergusons

from in Scotland? Or was it Ireland?
My oldest known Ferguson is Samuel Ferguson b. 1781 in Virginia d. abt 1826

Ferguson's father was also named Samuel.
Please Help! ---Lorraine
"Also researching: Bell, Lee, Gresham, Bernard, Shelton, Woodson, Sutherland,"
"McDonald, Stegall, Barkesdale, Hodges, Cates, Morton, Randolph, Leach,"
"Bowman, Atkins, Halbert, Young, Love, Wear, Robertson, Lewis, Pryor, Tinsley,"
"Quin, Matlock, DePriest, Micheaux"

I have been on this list for a very long time and have not YET found another Ferguson cousin. I will try my annual posting and see if I can fish any relatives out.

I descend from Samuel Ferguson, Sr. b. abt 1755 and his son Samuel Ferguson, Jr. b. bef June 1781 m. 19 Dec 1807 Fluvanna, VA to Mary Polly Bynum BERNARD (dau of Allen Bernard & Nancy B. Mitchell. The family lives in or near Nelson Co., Virginia until my GGrandpa Jesse Bernard Ferguson emigrates to Texas.
Anything strike familiar?
---Hoping to be a cousin,

Yes, I have the info. you posted. Gary and I are researching together with Bonnie Ferguson and John Ferguson. Just wishing that someone on this list could clear up our brick walls. A dream...

Samuel A. married 7 Aug 1837 Batesville, St. Anne's Parish, VA to Eliza Jane BARKSDALE, born in 6 Apr 1820 in Albemarle County, Virginia.
They had the following children:
2. James FERGUSON. Born in 1838. No more info on him.
3. Mary Louise FERGUSON. Born in 1840 in Albemarle County, Virginia, m. George Washington Butler in the VA home of Samuel Allen Ferguson 1864.
