Notes

Cover title: Fergus family history.

Alternate title: A short history of the Fergus family.

Francis Fergus (1752-ca. 1841), a Revolutionary War soldier, and his father emigrated from Scotland, ca. 1770, and settled in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He married Mary McCormick, ca. 1780, in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. They had nine children. The family migrated to Rockbridge County, Virginia, in 1790 and to Pulaski County, Virginia, in 1802. As the children established homes of their own, they migrated west to Ohio, Indiana, Tennesse, and Missouri. Francis Fergus died at the home of a daughter near Sparta, Tennessee. Descendants listed, chiefly descendants of his son, James Fergus (1783-1855), of Miami County, Ohio, lived in Ohio, Nebraska, Indiana, and elsewhere.

Includes a brief outline of other early Fergus families in America.
