>> May I toss another John Farguson into the Virginia Ferguson Lineages.
>> What is known is from "John and Amy Gatewood and their descendants,
>> 1666-1986" by Carol J. Gothberg.
>> Sarah Gatewood was listed as one of the "three youngest children"
>> in her father's will. (John Gatewood, Farnham Parish,Essex County,
>> will dated Nov 14, 1706; probated Jan 10, 1706/7, page 328)
>> Sarah was still living in 1744 when her mother made her will and
>> named Sarah Farguson as one of her daughters. (Amy Gatewood, will
>> dated Apr 4, 1744; probated June 18, 1745, S. Farnham Parish,
>> Essex County, Book 7, pages 335-337)
>> When Sarah married John Farguson is not known. However, she was
>> not the Sarah Farguson who was the mother of a daughter named
>> Jail, brothers and sisters. Thomas Bridgeforth identifies this
>> Sarah as his sister when he made his will.
>> Nothing more about the Farguson's are mentioned.
