Subject: Malinda Ferguson
Hello, I was wondering if you might be able to help me find my Gr Gr Gr
Gr Grandfather, James Ferguson.
My Gr Gr Gr Grandmother is Malinda Ferguson, she married Daniel Lawhorn
in Greenup County, KY in December of 1836, on the marriage record it
states: consent of James Ferguson, Father of Malinda. After she and
Daniel married they lived in Wayne Co., VA/WV. Daniel had a twin
brother Charles Lawhorn, he and his wife, Jane Ferguson, also resided in
Wayne Co.
I have been in contact with a lady who is a decendent of Charles and
Jane (Ferguson) Lawhorn. We cannot find any record of marriage for
them. We believe that Jane and Malinda Ferguson could be sisters.
On the 1850 Wayne Co. census there is a Sarah Ferguson Bailey, she lived
in between these two families. Further research showed that this Sarah
had a brother named James. We believe that Malinda was born abt. 1818,
as well as Jane. They were both 32 on the 1850 census.
I have looked in southern OH, eastern KY and VA/WV. Every James I find
that would fit the timeframe, stops at him. I can find no marriage nor
Any help or direction that you could lead me would be most appreciated.
Thank you for your time.
