From: Bob McMillan Looking for informationabout Cordelia (Kirdelia) Ferguson who married Elijah L Ferguson in Clermont Co., Ohio in the 1850's. I am looking for her parents. Anyone recognize this couple? Thanks, Barbara Ferguson McMillan This information is from "Sketches of Revolutionary Services" (Clermont County): Colonel Isaac Ferguson entered the Revolutionary War as a second lieutenant and served over five years, coming out a colonel. Major Thomas Ferguson, his father, was a captain in the old French and Indian war, and at Braddock's defeat, July 9, 1756, had three bullet holes in his clothes, his powder horn shot to pieces and his hair badly singed and was also under Washington at the Great Meadows when attacked by the French and Indians. Thomas was an early settler on the Monongahela River, eighteen miles above Ft. Duquesne, the first lodgment west of the Alleghenies, and there his sons, Isaac and Henry were born. Isaac, from being in command of a company of scouts and spies, rose to command a regiment before the end of the Revolution. After peace he emigrated with his family to Bryan's Station, KY., where he became the companion of Boone, Kenton, Morgan, Bryan and other pioneer Indian fighters and scouts. He came over with them in the spring of 1791 in pursuit of the Indians, and was in the fight that took place at the mouth of Grassy Run in Jackson Township, this county. In 1794 he removed to Campbell County , KY, and in 1796 crossed over to what is now Pierce Township, where at the mouth of Nine Mile or Muddy Creek, first called John's Creek, where he established Ferguson's Ferry. He died in 1818, leaving a wife, seven sons and three daughters. His wife was Elizabeth Leedom, of memory fragrant in heorism in the stirring times of '76, when she carried messages for Washington that no man could deliver in safety. His sons were Isaiah, Zachariah, Hugh, Isaac, Francis, James and Thomas. Of these Isaiah was a major in the War of 1812, and Hugh, who married a daughter of the Revolutionary veteran, James Arthur, was an ensign in the same struggle. Colonel Isaac Ferguson was the grandfather of Hon. James Ferguson, County Auditor in 1835-7, and later editor of The SUN, and of Major Ira Ferguson, in the Union army of 1861-5, and twice Representative in the Legislature, and of Hon. John Ferguson, two terms County Auditor and in the Legislature of 1862-4. This Revolutionary veteran's daughters became the wives of Abel Donham, Colonel William Lindsey and Robert Donham, and his descendants in Clermont are numbered by the hundreds, intermarried with scores of the old and leading families.
