My furthest back paternal ancestor of which I have seen evidence is Moses Ferguson who lived in Henrico Co. Virginia in the portion south of the James River that became Chesterfield Co. in 1749. As I recall, Moses died about 1750 and his wife Martha lived until about 1778. Moses & Martha/Chesterfield Co. - John & Mary Gill/Chesterfield & Bedford Cos. - Capt. John/Franklin Co. - Archibald & Frances Hix/Franklin & Patrick Cos. - John Wesley & Mary David/ Franklin Co. - Willis M. & Signora Ramsey/Franklin & Floyd & Pittsylvania Cos. VA and Rockingham Co. NC. My line of this Family stayed in VA until about 1897, when my ggrandfather, Willis McHenry Ferguson and his wife, Signora Ramsey Ferguson, moved to nearby Reidsville, NC. My Grandfather, George W. Ferguson, married Myrtle Stone in Reidsville in 1915 and they moved to Schoolfield (now part of Danville), VA.
