Seeking ancestry of James Leroy Ferguson, b 1812 in Georgia (per the census)
& d. 6 April 1899 in Carroll County, Arkansas. Mother is Elizabeth ?,
James parents went from Georgia to Tennessee, probably Bedford County,
between 1816 & 1820; one brother was born in Georgia the rest of the
siblings were born in Tennessee.
James first married Lucille WAGGONER and they had three daughters -
Elizabeth c. 1837, Mary Jane c. 1840, & Susan c. 1843.
Secondly he married Zeralda MATLOCK GARDENHIRE in 1848 and their children
are: Hannah c 1849, Thomas C. c1850, Roaine c1854, Alvin M. c1857, Missouri
A. c1859, Alice c1863, and William M. c1867.
James is in Carroll County, Arkansas in the 1840, 1850, 1860, & 1880 census.
Not sure where he is in 1870.
His mother, Elizabeth, first appears in Carroll County, Arkansas in the 1850
Have much to share on descendency, extremely lacking on ancestry!
