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.
East Tx. Joseph & my Joseph have been mixed up I think. They
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
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
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
