Is this the same Ferguson family that was also in Scott County in the 1790s?
There is a federal court case involving a Ferguson in Scott County and my
ancestor John D. Perkins testified on his behalf as he lived on part of the
Ferguson land in the area of leCompte's Run in Scott County. I belong to the
Fayette, Bourbon, Grant, Harrison, Owen, Woodford and Gallatin mailing lists
so I saw your posting three times. It was also forwarded to the Harrison
I am also very interested in the Jane Ferguson you state married a Mr.
Martin. Do you have any further information on this Martin? I have an
Elijah Martin that lived in Pendelton County in the 1813-1818 era. He then
moved to Owen County, KY. His first wife died before 1818 and he had one
known daughter Sarah Martin born in 1813 who is my GGGgrandmother. She
married Thomas Jones in Owen County, KY on Nov. 9, 1833. Elijah Martin was
connected to the Perkins family in several transactions and later the lines
intermarried. It is possible that they knew each other because of both being
connected to the Ferguson family. I also know the Ferguson family of Scott
county was associated with the Lindsay family in Scott County.
Thanks so much.
