Do you have a Joseph Ferguson in your records? He was born about 1840 (maybe Alabama), married a Susie Williams(?), and had three children, Susan (aka Leathe) b 1862 in LA, John C. b 1863 in TX, and Jefferson b 1866 in TX. The first time I can find him is on the 1870 census in Sabine Parish, LA with his three children but a new wife of 1 year. His three children were raised by their grandmother in or around Zwolle, LA. According to a bible record Joseph Ferguson died in Orange, TX. According to the 1910 census of Orange Co., TX Jefferson Ferguson was living there. I would appreciate any help as I've come up against a blank wall.
