I don't think that this John FERGUS was a brother to Francis FERGUS as Francis was born in Co Tyrone, Ireland 8 Sept 1852, and John FERGUS was born in 1717 in Scotland. But, perhaps John FERGUS was an uncle to Francis FERGUS . . . that is a possibility as the father of Francis more than likely emigrated from Scotland to Ireland and that time frame would be correct. Did John have a brother Francis and also a nephew Francis? Does anyone know the answer?
