Wayne Thomas Ferguson Sun Apr 29 16:05:02 2007
I have not lived in Chattanooga since my birth in 1946 except for visits. I have traced my lineage back to the Chattanooga area 1840 census: great, great, great grandfather Benjamin FERGUSON and wife Easther who are listed as being fron N.C.

One of their sons..Benjamin H. FERGUSON ( wife Dorinda), born 1840, was my great, great grandfather was a SGT Co.F 35th Tennesse Infantry CSA.

His son was Thomas M. FERGUSON (wife Ada)..my great grandfather and father of Bonner FERGUSON. My father, Orville Lee FERGUSON was Bonner's son. I have found that Benjamin H. FERGUSON, Thomas M. FERGUSON and a great, great uncle..William S. FERGUSON have all been steamboat pilots..documented on census lists. My big obstacle is getting earlier info on the North Carolina connection. I know from family lore that there were Ferguson ship masters from Aberdeen who came into Virginia in the mid 1700's and I have found several references to ship masters with the FERGUSON name. Somehow I am not able to fill in those missing years. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
