Hi Kelli, Thanks for writing.I am pleased that you have information that indicates that Joel is a son of Isaac Ferguson and Nancy Hayward (I don't show Howard as the spelling.)Can you tell me what evidence you have for this?I'm seeking some sort of proof as so far I have found no proof, but only "statements" that he is Isaac's son.
I have more information on the line from my Emily Ferguson, (Joel's daughter and I now have proof of that!) who married Benjamin Stephenson if you are interested.
Regarding Nimrod Ferguson and Rebecca Hudson, you may want to order Mrs. Lewis's book as the excerpts I've seen are very informative. Nimrod is the son of Isaac Farguson and his wife Elizabeth per Mrs. Lewis.
Looking forward to hearing back from you. Lorien Gunsallus
