Hello everyone, 
        I am trying to find any info on my ggf Russell Ferguson. The only info I
have is that he was born in 1834 in North Carolina, he married Amelia
McMinn nee Ainsworth in 1868 in Calif., and that they had at least 4
children (Addie May, Thomas J., Will, & Ed       (ward ?).
        Any help will be greatly appreciated!
                                                Thank you, Jim Shriver.
