Sharon, I have several William Fergusons in my line. The first William was born in York Cty, VA in 1700 to John and Elizabeth. The second was born in 1724 to William and Hope in York Cty, he also had a son William Jr, although he is not my direct line, his brother Francis is my line. So you are not the only one with the same names. If I can help you anyway let me know. Frances
