Re: Alexander Ferguson, Gill's Creek Church, Franklin Co. (VA)
I've seen pedigrees wherein your Alexander is said to descend from Daniel FERGUSON who was exiled from Scotland after the Battle at Dunbar in 1650 and ended up in Berwick, Maine. Given that your maiden name is FERGUSON you may be in a position to use DNA to test that connection.
In the Fergus(s)on DNA Project we already have a DNA sample from a descendant of Daniel by his son James. If your line descends from Daniel's son Alexander then a DNA sample from your line should match closely that of James' line.
You would need a living father, uncle, brother, cousin ornephew by the name FERGUSON to provide a DNA sample. The Fergus(s)on DNA Project, which I administer on behalf of the Clan Fergusson Society of North America, is here: http://dna.cfsna.nethttp://dna.cfsna.net
