I am new to the list. I would love to hear from anyone who has knowledge
relating to my family.  

The earliest Ferguson I know about in my family is Leo Ferguson.(born in
NC, I think) 
His son my GGranfather David Alford Ferguson (born 1887),  Married
Bessie SPIVEY. They  lived in Randleman,NC (Randolph Co).

I would also like to hear from Fergusons from surrounding counties as I
do not know the origin of Leo. I got the name Leo from my Great Aunt.

My Andrew Ferguson/Furguson was born in Scotland c. 1850 and came to the USA
in 1869. I believe his parents were Alexander and Jean Ferguson of
"Stewarton, Ayrshire and that he married Mary McNarny in Arlington,"
"Middlesex, MA in 1873. The family spent about 10 years in New Brunswick for"
"unknown reasons and returned in 1889 to the Boston area, settling in"
"Winthrop, MA before 1918. There are 9 children including George H Ferguson"
who married Esther Sharkey (my grandparents).
"Of course, any information would be vreatly apreciated."
