The Minister of Moulin's MS states that either the Rev. Alexander Ferguson, minister of Crathie and Braemar or the Rev. John Ferguson, minister of Glenmuick and Glengairn was the father of the Aberdeenshire (Alexander) Ferguson who married the heiress (Elspeth) of Ballyoukan in Athole [Records..., p. 618]. Subsquent research indicates it was the former. [Fasti ecclesiae scoticanae Vol. VI by Hew Scott 1926 ]
