From: Margie Subject: [Ferguson-L] Ferguson, Andrew J. I just did a search on Ancestory for my ancestor, Andrew J. Ferguson, b ? m. Elizabeth_______,? where?, when?. On the Hancock co, Tn 1850 census Elizabeth is listed as a widow with children: Sarah, Emeline, Polly, Wesley, Robert, ,Jerry, and John. She was age 40, and was b. in Virginia. Their son Wesley stated on his pension application that his father and mother both died before 1850. However his mother did not die until after the 1850 census was taken. Wesley stated that he lived with his brother Jerry from age 11 until he went into the war.( He was listed as age 11 on the census.) He also stated that he was born in Claiborne co, Tn. I have searched for years for an Andrew who was m. to an Elizabeth. The three that I found were too early. She was b. ca 1810, Would have not married until at least 1825 or 30. This family remained in Hancock co, Tn and decendants are found all around this area. I have never been able to connect this family to any other Fergusons in the area. There was a Samuel Ferguson that signed an affadavit for his pension application, but I have not identified his, as yet. I would appreciate any help I can get on this family. Margaret Long Mabrey To Penny and Andrew J. Ferguson of Hancock co, Tn researchers. I am taking this clue litterally and researching the Callicott?Calico line, for Elizabeth. There was a line of them in Hawkins/Hancock co's about that time. This is a new surname for me but it looks promising. I have not seen any information on any Carrico families being in Hancock co area. Margaret
From: Margie MARGARET LONG MABREY Penny, I'm not sure about this Andrew. He may be the one that I found that married an Elizabeth McFarland. I never could prove or disprove him. I just found out in the last day or so, that Elizabeth's last name was "Gray". Janet Carioti (not on line) told me that on Wesley's pension application, he mentioned an Uncle ________Gray. He would have to have been Elizabeth's brother. I looked up the Gray's in the 1850 census and found that they were previously in Claiborne co, Tn. That fits with what we know already. I have written to her to get the part of the census that gives his uncles name. She said that there was a lot of papers in his file because they had applied many times. Apparently I did not get them all. This is not pertinent to this list but she also said that Carter Anderson's wife was a 'Calico". That the name was handed down in her family. Her grandmother had thought if was a funny name. The research that I have done so far is that I think she was the daughter of James Callicott, who changed his name to 'Calico during the time he was in Hawkins/Hancock. He married Elizabeth Vaughn. and had 4 children that other researchers know of. Beverly, Pricilla, John Calvin, and another that I can;t remember right now. They settled and died in Warren co., Tn. Other Callicott/calico families migrated on to Indiana. There is a Callicott list. Not a lot of traffic because there is not an abundance of Callicott's. I have found 2 Web pages so far and they both start with the same individual. John Callicott. I will let you know what I find out about Andrew Ferguson's Elizabeth. Margaret -----Original Message----- >To Margie and anyone working on Andrew Ferguson, I received this on another >list. What do you know or think about this Andrew Ferguson.

(Census record for 1850 Hancock co, Tn, listed Elizabeth as a widow, b. Va, age 40, (b 1810?) Children: Sarah, Robert, Mary,Wesley, Susan, John, Jerry, and Emeline. Elizabeth died later that year 1850. according to her son, Wesley's pension application. In the application, she stated that his fathers name was Andrew J. Furgason, mothers name Elizabeth. That his father had died before 1850 and mother died that year. He listed siblings and his childrens names. He also said that he was b in Claiborne co, Tn. This family remained in Hancock co and has many descendants there. Need to know Elizabeth's maiden name, and more about Andrew and from whince he came? It has been said that Elizabeth was a GRAY,but I have found no connection. Childrens ages range from 1832 to 1839.) Thanks Margaret Long Mabrey

"Subject: [Ferguson] Ferguson's in Hawkins co, Tn."
"ndrew was born in NC sometime before or after 1800.There are 3 Ferguson families listed on the 1830 Hawkins co, Tn census Abner age 40/50, Joseph age 20/30,(same page) and George age 30/40. On the 1840 Hawkins co, Tn census there were 2 Ferguson families, Joseph age 30/40, and John age 30/40. I always thought that my Andrew J. was Andrew Jackson, but it may have been Andrew John. Two of his sons names their oldest sons John. The childrens ages of this John match my Andrew J's children exactly. Joseph was in Hancock co, Tn in 1850. Descendants have no knowledge of any connection to Andrew. John disappeared. Is he the same as Andrew and left a widow in Hancock co ( part of Hawkins co, Tn? Any info world be appreciated. In fact any info on Fergusons in wither county would be appreciated"
