William Ferguson (1757-1801) migrated from Virginia to Mississippi Territory, stationed as garrison clerk with the British at Natchez. Married Pauline Burch lived in Jefferson County, Mississippi Mount Locust on the Natchez Trace.

Does anyone have a Philadelphia Fergsuon in their Family Tree?
Diane Shackleford Small

My Philadelphia Ferguson was born around 1796 in Jefferson County MS--what I am looking for is information about her father William's family. She was supposedly named after a Fergsuon family member back in Virginia--but that is all I know. William's family may have come from Essex Co. Va but I have no proof.
