From: "The Kineman Family" 

I have a Ferguson ancester who I've been told was from the Powhatan Indian
tribe.  His name was James D. Ferguson, who was my grandmother's father.  I
have yet to find any concrete evidence of this.  I am also having alot of
difficulty tracing James Ferguson.  My grandmother, Rachel was born in Wayne
County, Illinois in 1897.  Her father James D. and mother, Alta Doty were
married in Wayne County, Illinois  on 07 Aug., 1895.  According to their
marriage record, he was born in Iowa.  His father was L.M. Ferguson and
mother was E. J. Sullivan.

Can anyone help?
