Joseph Fergusonwas born SC in the 1780s. He went to KY. then to
Ill. then to TX by 1834. Not sure about 1st wife, 2nd was a Hannah Brown &
3rd was a
Hannah Penrod he married in Tx.  I am not sure about the wives so don't take
it to the bank right now, still working on him.
        There is a Joseph Fergusonin east TX. that has been mixed up with
mine I feel.  Robertson Colony Papers by McLean lists his family as:
Joseph Ferguson  48
Hannah           23 wife from Ill.
Robert M         17  he married a Mary Hudson in Washington?Brazos Co. TX
Lucinda          10  I have lost her
Rebecca Ann       8 my 2 great grand mo. married Geo. W. Folley
Elizabeth         6  I have lost her
Joseph P          2   """""""""""him
Nancy Jane        1   """""""""""her
Rachael        1847   Limestone Co. TX
Virginia F     1853    """"""""""""""  Married a Henry Frazier
Malissa D      1857    """"""""""""""  Married a       Goodwin

Sandy I am also working on the TX Fergusons, Joseph in Brazos & Limestone Co..
Joseph Ferguson's son Robert M. Fergusonwas a early ranger with Sterling C.
Robertson in the mid 1830s. Do we have any ties?

My Fergusonresearch is centered in TEXAS & follows these lines:

DELLA MAE Ferguson(1887 Brady TX-1974 Rule TX) m William Edgar
Hollingsworth (b 1882 Ellis co TX  d 1962 Rule TX)  m 1906 Brady Co or
Haskell Co TX

dau of DAVID AULSTON Ferguson(1857 Longview Co TX -1938 Coleman TX) & Mary
Ann (McCullough/McCullin ????) d 1903 TX

son of ALSTON JOSEPH Ferguson(1823 Kaskaskia IL - 1867 Erath Co? TX) m
Sarah Carolina Smith 1847.  He was given a Harrison Co TX land grant by
Anson Jones, President of Republic of TX 1846.

psbly son of JOSEPH FURGUSON b ~1788 TN or KY  d 1839 Harrison Co TX) & Jane
Gragg/Gregg (b1798 KY d 1874 or 1875 Harrison Co TX)

There were several Joseph Fergusonfamilies listed as settlers of Texas,
many with children named Alstan/Alston/Aulston, etc.

Anyone have info on this line??  I have accumulated info on "unrelated"
lines, esp in early TEXAS 1840-1870 timeframe and will share any or all.

The Joseph Fergusonlines of Brazos & Limestone Co. Tx. are my lines.  The
East Tx. Joseph & my Joseph have been mixed up I think.  They either had
children by the same names or someone yrs. ago  put all the children
together.  I will have to go back & dig out old records of Robertson Co. Tx.
I may have some legal papers signed by your Alston.  
I don't know which Joseph was married to Jane Gregg, some say mine, some say
your.  I do know that his last wife was Hannah  & she & Joseph are both
buried in FergusonCem. Oletha, Limestone Co. Tx. 
 Limestone Co. Joseph was the father of Robert M. Ferguson
Rebecca FergusonFolly Roberts( my 2nd GGrandmother)
Rachael FergusonSadler
More children I am sure but have no  proof at this time.  My Rebecca was
born in Ill.
Pat Oates in Tx.
