BROWN, CLARK, FERGUSON, GREER, HEPTINSTALL, JOYCE, KNIGHT, LAWRENCE, SAPP, SHELTON, STOVALL, WILKINS, WOOD -
Seeking information on ancestors of Caleb William "Will" FERGUSON, b. 1865 Patrick Co VA? - d.1944 Henry Co. VA, m. Maggie Jane JOYCE 1888. Maggie was b. 1871 - d 1943 in Stokes Co. Maggie was the dau of Livingston Lafayette JOYCE and Mary Elizabeth "Betsy" KNIGHT. "Will" was the son of Caleb Heptinstall FERGUSON and Frances Fuqua SHELTON - both, at the time of his birth of Patrick Co. VA They had 8 children: Lillie Virginia WOOD (Elmer); Jesse - died as a small child; Ella Maude BROWN (John "Booker") - my grandparents; Grover (Irene CLARK); William F. (died as a small child); Sally CLARK (Harry); Lula LAWRENCE (Harvey), and Raymond FERGUSON (Alice STOVALL). I have a fair amount of information contained in my Mormon PAF (Mac) program. Primarily seeking information on his ancestors - his father Caleb Heptinstall FERGUSON (1826-1907) may have been born in Franklin Co. VA and died in Stokes Co. NC. "Will" was the last of 6 children - preceeded by: Thomas Hardy; John Henry; Victoria SAPP ("Bud"); Sophia Ann FERGUSON FERGUSON (TJ); and Sarah FERGUSON WILKINS (Dave). Believe Caleb Heptinstall FERGUSON to be the son of John P. (Parker?) FERGUSON and Sophia HEPTINSTALL. Sophia was the dau of Caleb HEPTINSTALL B. CA 1770/80 and a Tege GREER of Bedford Co. VA Would appreciate any information and be willing to share what I have.
