I've traced my Ferguson's back to a Wiley W. Furgeson, born 1810 SC, lived
around Cobb Co. and Paulding Co., GA near Dallas, GA.  He had brothers
Marshall, John and sisters Rebecca, Nancy, and Caroline.  First wife was
Adeline Cochran and second wife was Matilda B.. Children: Martha Ann, John B.,
William, James W., Sarah M., Wiley Anderson, Newton D., Caroline, Milson,
Louisa.   One source has his father as a John Forgeson, born in 1789 in
Culpeper Co., VA. I have no documentation of who was Wiley's father and am
looking for such proof.
