"Dear Pat and others,"
" I am very interested in this family, as they are one of my"
"collateral lines. My 3g grandmother, Eleanor (""Ellen"") Sandusky Ferguson"
was a first cousin to the Susan Sandusky who married Benjamin Ferguson.
"Eleanor Sandusky married William Ferguson on Sept. 14, 1826 in Washington"
"Co., KY. William and Eleanor (Sandusky) Ferguson moved from Washington"
"Co., KY to the area of McDonough Co., IL between 1834 and 1836."
" I am sure that William Ferguson (who m. Eleanor Sandusky) and"
"Benjamin Ferguson (who m. Susan Sandusky) were related, but am not certain"
"just how. This is one of my ""brick walls,"" so, if anyone can help, please"
feel free to do so.
" Also, Pat, can you provide any more information (dates, places,"
"spouses, descendants, etc.) on the other children of Benjamin and Susan"
(Sandusky) Ferguson? I have a little on the descendants of Frances Marion
"Ferguson, but little on the others."
" Many thanks to all,"
" Annie Utick"
