Re:  Ferguson,  My Line     (Herring)

Hey guys,  this is my line..  Fanny Wade dau of John Ferguson of Franklin co
Don't know what you all were talking about, but would like to connect


There was a genealogist named Mae Moore who did a Segement in the Ferguson
Book of Franklin county Va.. In my Ferguson sopies on page 114 she states:

Letter from Mae Mooer 10 Sept 79.. Shirley Doran wrote than Joseph, John K,
Moses, and Daniel went to  Kentucky.. John J, Moses, and Daniel Ferguson went
to Monroe County
Effie Wilson wrote that John K, Moses and Daniel Ferguson are on the 1850
census of Monroe County Kentucky..   
Daniel bought land in Cumberland CO Ky 10 July 1829, marked delivered to
Fendall Palmore 14 Nov 1831 Daniel is on Monroe County Census in 1830.
This Daniel son of John married Ann Hepinstall 27 Jan 1816 in Bedford County..
so I am assuming all the above were from Bedford county Va..  

Does this ring any bells..

RIver in what used to be Patrick county,Henry COunty, now Franklin
This John Sr. had a son by the name of James  who 1805, Montgomery CO Va ,

Only information I have on James is m/Elizabeth Smith ...  

There was a John Ferguson m/Mary  ??? GILL??  who lived in Bedford Co, part of
Bedford CO  also became Franklin CO...  
Not connected to the above Fergusons that I can link...There is a deed in Fr.
co, shows John K Ferguson, Mary his wife, of Monroe Co,Ky  convey to Peter
Wright of Beford Co fpr $500....   

1850 census , Monroe co, Ky  shows John K. Ferguson, wife mary  from Va and a

Does this help or confuse?     Julie
