Here are my TEXAS FergusonS.
REASON TURNER Ferguson, Sr ( son of Joseph), B. 1807, Franklin Co, VA
married SUSANNAH HARVEY, 1826. They left KY and came into TX 1846
through Indianola. They brought with them 10 children:
JOHN HARVEY,b 1833, KY
BERTHANIA THURMAN , b. 1837, KY ( my gggrandmother)
WILLIS HAYDEN, b. Sept 15, 1829, KY
HENRY CLAY,b. 1861
JOSEPH WILSON,b 1843, KY
MARY ELIZABETH, b1845, KY
REASON TURNER, b. 1847, KY
all of these children were born KY
After they landed in TX- Victoria, Refugio, DeWitt Co
SUSAN FRANCIS, b. 1-6-1848, TX
LUCY EMILY, b. April 13, 1851, TX
BERTHANIA THURMAN Ferguson remained in Dewitt Co after her marriage to
JAsper L. Gilbert in 1850.
REASON TURNER Ferguson moved the rest of the family into Limestone Co,
TX where he and his wife and children were found living(1860 census)
Ferguson, J. H. ( JOHN HARVEY).
I can trace Berthania and her family. I can trace WILLIS HAYDEN , who
moves to Hays Co,Tx. As well as mother SUSANNAH Ferguson, she too moves
to Wimberley, Hays Co, Tx.
I have never be able to place the rest of these FergusonS. If any one
connects- let me know.
