BRICK WALL...Ferguson/Fergeson in 1870, Goode in 1880
Posted by: Kathye [Payne] Upham (ID *****9916) Date: October 13, 2003 at 02:13:32
  of 1986

I am trying to find the George Furgason (?) who married Miss Rachel [Sherrard] supposedly on 20 May 1867 Ellis Co Tx.
I have no idea if he lived in Ellis Co or elsewhere?
Rachel Jane [Sherrard] Furgason married again 01 Feb 1871 in Dallas Co Tx so George may have died before then as I have not been able to locate him under any last name beginning with "Furg" or "Ferg" in the 1870 Tx census index.
Rachel Jane was born either 24 Mar 1850 or 1852 in Iowa or Ohio. I believe from my research she was born 1852 Iowa.
I am trying to find out if George & Rachel had any children.
I have found possible 1870 census listings for Rachel in VanZandt & Trinity counties but neither show the marital status and neither were born in Iowa or Ohio.......
I have also been unable to find Rachel Jane and her 2nd husband Hiram Harrison Goode on the 1880 Texas census index. Hiram died in Dallas Co Tx on 29 Oct 1882.
Any help finding George and/or Rachel Jane in 1870 or Hiram and Rachel Jane in 1880 would be deeply appreciated !!!!
