Bob,

Not related but found some info that might help. Is it possible Charles' middle initial "N" stands for Newton?? The reason I ask, is that I did find a family with a son the same age as Charles, but he is listed as "Newton" in 1860 & 1870 Brown Co., IN census. In 1880 he is listed as Charles N. Ferguson in the Jesse Sample household. Also in 1900 Charles states his father was born in VA & his mother was born in KY. The family I found with Newton living with them, father is born in VA and mother is born in KY.

Here is the info I found:

Thanks, Don. I had the marriage info for Charles Ferguson and Jennie Wright, their obits, and some other info. Messages I have received resulting from my latest posting, however, has given me more information, including data about Caleb B. Ferguson and Susan Lawrence, Charles' parents. I will reply to all.

Thanks again.

Hi, can I enter in here? I'm looking for the siblings of Alice and Mollie Ferguson. I did not find Malinda Jeannette Ferguson listed with them. I'm Malinda Jeannette Ferguson Calvin's great granddaughter. I'd love a copy of the obits for Caleb and Susanna
