There were a number of Ferguson families that went south to Alabama and
Mississippi.  I am descended from one that is also a brick wall. One of
sons was named John W. Ferguson, born in AL about 1855.  

According to census records (all that I have to go on) the John's
father was
born in AL, TN or VA, depending on which census you choose to believe.
He was
also born in 1832, 1846, or 1838, reflected by the ages shown in the
census records.

There was also a James H. Ferguson (brother to John) born about 1857.
was also a very wealthy older James H. Ferguson residing in the same
county. I
suspect kinship, but dont know how.  Unable to  tie these to another

If you haven't already, you need to subcribe to:

alternate spellings (FARGUSON, etc.) included Ferguson-John-D - digest

This is the list the ancestors of Adams Ferguson are listed on.  There
are several subscribers who are related through Samuel Ferguson and
Caroline Sides.

Gotta run--will be in touch with you later--but wanted to pass this on
