I believe you are referring to Francis and Mary (not Margaret) McCormick Fergus. Francis is buried at the Ditty Farm near Sparta, TN -- my dad visited there. He got lost trying to find the site and went to a house. It turned out he was near the site. The resident of the house had received so many other lost visitors he started keeping a guestbook of visitors. Dad got a lot of good addresses of other Francis Fergus descendants!

Cynthia Russell is a wiz at all info related to Francis Fergus, and is the head honcho of a Fergus rootsweb. Go to her message 10-5-98; it has info on the roots web and the Fergus website.

I took the liberty of jotting down a couple of names from the rootsweb -- Gene Majors is descended from Jincy Fergus (, and there was a Mel Ditty ( You could write them for Ditty info.
