From: "W & J Germann" 

I am searching for information on my ancestor, John 
Ferguson Sr, born in NC, probably ca 1780.  He m/ 
1. Susan Ashby ca 1802 probably in NC or KY.  He 
m/ 2. Mary Sullivan 11 Aug 1808 in Christian Co KY.  

He left Ky in 1808 for IN, settled at site of present 
Evansville.    He was a schoolteacher and farmer, 
also a scout with the military.  A Methodist.  

Children by #1 were: 
1. Mary Ferguson
2. Peter Ferguson b. 22 Jun 1803, Christian
3. Thomas Crow  Ferguson, b. ca 1804 
Christian Co KY
4. Elizabeth (Betsey/Betty) Ferguson b. 1806
Christian Co KY. 
Children by #2 were:
1. Susanna Ferguson
2. Joseph Ferguson 
3.  Deborah Ferguson
4.  James Ferguson (Rev. A Methodist Minister)
b. aft 1808, IN    
5.  John L. Ferguson (Rev. A Methodist Minister)
b. 27 Aug 1811, prob. Warrick Co IN
6.  Catherine Ferguson, b. ca 1813, prob Warrick
7. Emeline Ferguson b. ca 1815, prob Warrick
Co IN. 

I descend through #5, John L. Ferguson, via his 
son Joseph W. Ferguson.  These families lived in 
Warrick and Pike counties, Indiana.  

Does anyone have any information on where in 
NC the John Sr came from?   The only information
I have seen is that he came from NC, no other 
data which would help find a county.    If anyone
recognizes John I would like to correspond to 
place this family in NC.  

Thanks in advance for any help,

Judy Germann

Dear Sylvia,

I was interested in your message.   You show a Walter
Ferguson as being son of your Abner.

We have a Walter Ferguson in our line who was a
wealthy man in the Tulsa area.  His daughter, Margaret,
was one of the youngest women in the US with a pilots '
license.  She was killed young in a plane crash.

Our Walter is son of Joseph W. Ferguson and his wife
Mary Elizabeth Bell.    Our Walter died 28 May 1948, at
Wewoka, Hughes County, OK.     We have some probate
papers where his brother's and sisters inherited from him.

We aren't by chance working on the same man are we?
