Hi Lynn,We may have exchanged posts in the past. Sorry if I am repeating.See
if this helps:Other Fergusons buried in Humphries Cem. Fulton Co.,
AR.Cemetery history: once owned by James Montgomery, originally in Izard
Co., and called Montgomery Cem. Takes a few marriages for
Montgomery/Ferguson to become allied, but they do eventually.These
Montgomery's are mom's ancestors, I have dabbled in the Ferguson clan off
and on. But, both sides of my family are buried there. You might visit the
cemetery via Findagrave for 11 Ferguson memorials.This line is also
associated with Prosperity AR Presbyterian Church. Billie Walsh has website
with transcription of church record book - for the life of me I can't find
his website; however, this is other
transcription -http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~arfulttp/prosperity/prosperity.htm
Wilma King retains the original record book.
You are wise to visit the archives - a wealth of information there on so
many lines.I have heard of the blind piano tuner.
Jean Mayfield Cuevas - a respected researcher and ARIzard list owner. She
has made this list a comfortable home for many researchers looking for and
finding allied families in northern Arkansas. Jean is affectionately
referred to as "list mom" by longtime subscribers.
Let me know if this helps. I have another file you might want.Marsha

been reading through the ARIZARD archives, and noticed old postings seeking
information on the descendants of John D. Ferguson who married Sarah L.
Ballard, and lived in Sharp County. John is buried at Highland. He is my
ggrandfather, through his son Robert Lee, born in 1879. Mark Ferguson, the
blind piano tuner who lived in Little Rock as an adult, was my grandfather's
brother.

I think the postings may have been by Jean Mayfield Cuevas, but am not sure.
