The Ferguson Family of Paris, Fauquier County, Virginia

See Steer Genealogy for social media connections.

The earliest known ancestor of this family is John Ferguson who married Joanna Diskin.

Their three sons, John Diskin, Josiah & James lived on a property called 'Wildcat Hollow' which is located near Route 50 and Route 602, just north of Paris and Ashby's Gap.

This is in present day Clarke County, VA right near the Fauquier County border.

The Ferguson family was also interconnected with the family of Rush Marshall who married Joanna Pede.

They were also connected with the family of William Strother who married Dorothy Savage? This was mainly through the branch of their son Robert who had at least two of his sons, James & Enoch settle within the vicinity of the Fergusons.

These families settled in the vicinity of Paris, Fauquier County, Virginia where it is said that many of their ancestral homes are still standing.

Below I have some information on these families and others that are connected, plus some links to Clan Ferguson related websites.

I will be adding some new data soon.

If you are familiar with this family I would like to hear from you. I'm interested in finding more about these families as well as collecting information on their descendants.
