Hello Pauline- Do you know where Catherine Ferguson came from? I know she was probably born in St. Francois, Missouri somewhere. Her father was Churchman Ferguson and her mother was Elizabeth. I know her father, Churchman Ferguson, was born in Tennessee, but I've been unable to trace him back to where in Tennessee.
You see...I am a Ferguson descendant. One of my great-grandfather's sisters kept a box of funeral cards. I'm trying to find out who all the people in the box of cards are. One of the cards belongs to George E. Ferguson from Montana. His father was Joseph Churchman Ferguson from St. Francois, Missouri. His father was William Ferguson and William's father was Churchman Ferguson. So I've been able to trace the family to St. Francois, Missouri and Churchman's daughter was Catherine who married Ezra Bible. So now I'm trying to figure out where in Tennesee Churchman Ferguson came from and how are they related to my Fergusons?? Anyway, just thought I would ask and see if you know.
