Is this surname a Brethren name? Did members of this family migrate to Ashe County?

I have a John Fertress who sold land to Abraham Baker, the Dunker. Then the surname seems to disappear. I have not fully investigated on my end but I was wondering if that surname has surfaced as a Brethren name, especially in the Uhwarrie area and Ashe County, NC area.
