Hi Shannon. I have also traced my family back to Samuel Ferguson 1796. That is if my tracing is correct. I was wondering if you have found any additional info beyond that. I haven't been able to trace the line further back, but would love to!!

Hi, I am trying to research my mother's Ferguson line.  Her father was George Marcus Lafayette "Lathe" Ferguson (1876-1945) and his father was Andrew Jackson Ferguson (Abt. 1833-?).  That is as far back as I can go with any proof. Andrew was first married to a Sela/Sealy (surname unknown) and they had four sons & a daughter.  She died & he married Elizabeth Redden.  They had my grandfather & a daughter.  Apparently he died & Elizabeth took the two children & moved to Robertson County Texas where the family still is today.

I know he is related to a William Ferguson born in Kershaw Co., SC but not sure how.  I think he may be his father but not sure.  He lived in Louisiana for awhile.  William married Martha Ann Daniel/McDaniel on 30 Sep 1813 in Amite Co. MS. I think I found him in the 1830 Census in Copiah County, MS.  In 1840, 1850 & 1860 he was in Choctaw County MS.  I have not found him after that.  Other researcher say his father was a John Ferguson & that line goes back to a John Ferguson, born about 1673 in Scotland, and was married to a Mary Rudd.  I would appreciate any help anyone can give me on my Andrew or on William's line.  Check out my Ferguson page at:

Sorry, Tom, I don't actually have a Coleman and I'm in the UK. Hopefully one of you compatriots can now pick this up

Tom, it might be helpful if you could at least give a country and approximate date range

Hi, I am researching my gr gr grandmother. Her name was:
Mary Frances Crenshaw b. 25 Oct 1854 AR d.06 Jun 1899 OK.
On the 1860 Scott Co.,AR census she is listed in the hld of a James M. Furguson family. This leads me to think her parents may have died between 1854 & 1860. On the 1870 Scott Co.,AR census she is married to Isaac John Allen Warford. Living with them was a female listed as "J" Crenshaw. She was said to be 1/4-1/2 Cherokee. But, had no roll card. Her heritage was a hush, hush topic. I am trying to document her parents and perhaps her sister ("J").
