Hello Lynne,
I suspect that John is a grandson of Robert FERGUSSON who was born in Moniave, near Dumfries, in Scotland, around 1745. He married Elizabeth BALLANTINE in 1788. Robert "owned Nanjemoy, an estate in Charles County, though he lived in Georgetown and later at 'Mulberry Grove,' also in Charles County, near Port Tobacco."

Have made any progress since your initial post? Where did you find the marriage for John and Elizabeth?

Elizabeth appears to be a widow by 24 Oct 1850 for in the 1850 Census, Hill Top, Charles County the family is listed as:
Elizabeth Ferguson, 36, MD
Robert, 8, MD
Wm, 6, MD
