Have you participated in the Ferguson DNA study? If you haven't, you really need to. If you have, what group are you in? My distant cousin is in the Scots group, and he matched a gentleman who also had Fergusons in Maury Co. He is stuck there, too. My son-in-law has a many great-grandmother who was from Maury Co. She was Emily Ferguson, born about 1824. She married Chesley Roan 1 Jul 1840.I don't know when he died, but she married James A. Smotherman 24 Apr 1863. They weren't married long because she died 13 Jun 1864 in Maury Co.
I don't understand why these Fergusons are so difficult to find.My Fergusons came from Albemarle Co., VA to Sumner Co., TN about 1807, and about 1810 moved across the state line into Barren Co., KY, but that area became Allen Co., KY in 1815.I can't find anything about him before 1793 when he got married in Albemarle Co.
Good luck, and if you haven't done the DNA test, try it. The Ferguson DNA webpage is located at:
