On this thread, might a link exist from Fergusson of Craigdarroch to Alexander Ferguson, born about 1777 Paisley, Renfrew, Scotland - married Agnes Thomson or Thompson 17 July 1802 Abbey, Paisley, Renfrew, Scotland.

Family oral history has it that our Fergusons were "buried next to Robert Burns, Scotland - also related to Annie Laurie - singer". Unconfirmated however as of 17 July 2005.

Perhaps a connection might be through Alexander Ferguson,        
born 6 September 1746, Craigdarrock, Dumfries, Scotland - married Deborah Cutler, August 1769. Parents: James Ferguson and Euphemia Nisbet.

All best,
Russell Carter
