Subject: Re: [FERGUSON] More old notes I found


Holly, from some research I've done on King George County, I think Isaac probably is the brother of Josiah, John Jr., and Josua Ferguson. Their father, John, was a Hanover Parish Vestryman with roots going back to the early 18th Century. Note the following record from the 1700 Club Project database. Both Josua and Josiah Sr. died within a few months of each other in 1750.

1750 May 4
Josiah Jr
Farguson
King George Co
At the same court, Isaac Farguson was appointed guardian to Josiah Farguson [Jr.].

saac Farguson
and
Elizabeth . . .
Their first appearance in public records is in Prince William Co., V A, parish of Hamilton. On 22 Apr 1733/34, Isaac Farguson and wife Elizabeth leased 100 acres of land from John Champe of Prince George Co., V A. On 03 Jun 1745 Isaac was elected to the vestry of Quantico Church, Parish of Dettigen, Prince William Co. In Dec 1751, church records show Isaac Farguson
("removed") was replaced on vestry.
Amelia Co., V A, records show Isaac Farguson bought land 02 Dec 1752 [Bk. 4, p. 41 ]. On 27 Jun 1759, a deed by Isaac Ferguson and Elizabeth of Halifax Co., NC, to James Lamkin of Amelia Co. for the tract of land Isaac bought in 1752. Then Edgecombe Co., NC, wills (abstracted) show Isaac Ferguson: 06 Mar 1764. Jul Ct. 1764, Wife and Extx: Elizabeth, lend one slave, also lend remainder my estate her natural life. Son: John, £ 12 when he reaches 21 yrs. It is recorded in Edgecombe Co. Abstracts: DB C-347 that Elizabeth (X) Ferguson of Edgecombe Co. deeded to her son, Nimrod Ferguson of same, Jan 01, 1765, in which she gave him all property left to her by her deceased husband, Isaac Ferguson, for him to act a! trustee. Nimrod Farguson bought 600 acres of land in Halifax, Co., VA, on 17 Oct 1765. Wilbur Ferguson wrote me that some sources think Isaac's son John moved to Wilkes Co., NC, and lived the rest of his life there. Hortense E. Abbot in her book
about the Wilkes Co. Fergusons, published by her in 1980, says John Ferguson was b. 1749. His will was probated in the Nov Court, 1835. He m. Frances Triplett (believed to be the sister of William Triplett who came from Loudoun Co., V A). John and Frances had seven children: Jane, b. about 1762 in V A; Linda; John B.; Margaret; Micajah; Nimrod, b. 20 Aug 1789, m. Elizabeth Isbe1l1818, had II children, all b. Wayne Co., IN; and Sarah, born about 1795, m. John Triplett, 27 Jan 1826. If John and Frances had a son named Isaac, Mrs. Abbot did not find records on him in Wilkes Co. However, John did not show up in Wilkes Co. records until after the Revolution. It is possible John moved to VA after his father's death, m. and started his family there, then moved to Wilkes Co. We should check records in Loudoun Co., VA.
Isaac Ferguson who died in Edgecombe County NC . His will dated Mar6, 1764 proved at July Court 1764. It names Elizabeth, and minor son,John. Elizabeth's estate was setled in 1789 in Northamton County, NC. These records say that Isaac and Elizabeth had five children. OnJanuary 1, 1765 Elizabeth Ferguson gives to son Nimrod property lefther by deceased husband, Isaac Ferguson. Another son, William, left awill dated Feb 24, 1964 and also proved in July court. It names wife,Jane and brother, Nimrod as executors.
