I have recently found that Nancy or Ann Ferguson was the sister to Lydia Ferguson who married Henry Neal of Orange County, NC. I am not sure where Lydia and Nancy Ann were from. They are listed as Heirs of William Tyrell on some documents I found at Chapel Hill. I am not sure how they would be related, but if I had to guess maybe one of William Tyrell's daughters married a Ferguson. I can find lots of information on William Tyrell about land disputes seems he bought up a bunch of land and in TN and there was some funny business there, but I can't find much about his family. If anyone know how the Ferguson's are related to William Tyrell please let me know. I also don't know what happen to Nancy Ann. She is listed as Ann Fergeson as one of the heirs of William Tyrell, but then she is listed as Nancy Fergeson when she is listed in Henry Neal's will as his wife Lydia's sister. I do know that Fergeson is Nancy Ann's given surname and not maiden name because i have a copy of a letter Robert Neal, son of Henry and Lydia, wrote to his "Aunt Ann" and at the bottom on the left is says Miss Ann Ferguson.
