Andrew, son of Robert Ferguson & Sarah (unknown), served in the War of 1812, and was supposedly still living in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1860. But no record of Andrew Ferguson living in Missouri in that time period has been found. IF Andrew lived so long, then surely he should have been on a federal pension list for Missouri as a veteran of the War of 1812. Has anyone else had more luck with him? I have done multiple searches for him on Ancestry and on Google.
