Co., TN She was b 25 Dec. 1816 NC/TN ? Dau of Thomas NOBLETT, They
QUAKERS, and the Fergusons were Presbyterian. "Frank" and Louisa NOBLETT
10 children and moved to McNairy Co., TN. "Frank" and his bro. Josiah "Joe"
Kennedy Ferguson were close and mar. sisters. "Joe" mar. Catherine NOBLETT.
The Fergusons visited IL, KY, OH and Iowa. The "War between
the STATES" was
a hardship and caused many problems during the 1860 & 70's. Have not
able to get correct info from IOWA. Relatives cannot locate and the
Washington Co., IOWA, would not answer. Frank had a dau Mary Catherin
Ferguson b 18 Dec. 1848, McNairy Co., TN. mar Abraham "Abe" TWiINMAN 19
1867, moved to Crawfordsville, Washington Co., IOWA. When Frank's wife
died he may have gone to Iowa There may have been a step-mother (no name)
Small children were not welcome and went to live with others or out
own. Difficult times in TN. Bro. "Joe" was shot in his own home by a
BUSHWACKER, murderer not named, "Joe" was a Mason, and a special Memorial
service was held for him at a stated meeting on the 3rd Sep. 1864. Berlin
