>Hi; You are not alone in the senior Fergusons looking for their roots. I was born in 1928 so I know exactly how you feel. As for health , all of us only have one day at a time. I put a lot of time and effort into taking good care on myself, and above all I try to set a good example for my family and friends. That was a lesson my father taught me. I have not been able to find much on my line of Fergusons, however I have learned how to find what I need. I have met so many wonderful people on the net, that alone is worth all the time I spend. My G-G-grandfather William Ferguson died on board ship on his way to the USA in 1852, he only had one son John Hunter Ferguson b. Dec.25, 1838 in Dumfries, Scotland. He lived most of his life in Iberia, Missouri. He was in the Civil War. He lived to the age 101 yrs. I remember visiting with him when I was a young boy. I was 12 yrs. old the year he died. As one old-thmer to another, hang in their we have a lot to do. God bless you and yours. Your friend and fellow Ferguson Harold E. Ferguson Denton, Texas
> >Hi Sharon; I understand how you feel about never finding family members. I have a situation that is unlike most. My Fergusons came to the USA in 1852, My G-G-Grandfather died aboard ship during the voyage. My grandfather was the only son, so only one person could pass on the family name. I have a great uncle named William T. Ferguson born May 20, 1863 in Iberia, Missouri. All of my family of Fergusons have now migrated all over the country. I live in Denton, Tx. I was born in Dixon, Mo. If you have a connection to any of the Missouri Fergusons, please contact me, I would love to exchange information with you. Sincerely. Harold E. Ferguson, Denton, Texas
