Hello Back Cousin,

Thank you very much for replying so promptly. I am thrilled to know that you have photos of Mary and Agnes. I will eagerly await getting copies from you.

I am from the line of Thomas Lincoln Ferguson, Mary Fermer Finlay's son. Thomas' daughter, Flossie Dell Ferguson Smith was my grandmother. Thomas' daughter, Esther Ferguson Jones is the one I have to thank for the Ferguson family history that I have. She was very good about writing down all that she knew of her parents and grandparents in a little book that she passed on to me.

When Alexander and Mary moved to Jasper County, MO, they bought 320 acres of land and built a two story rock house on the farm. That rock house (although in a very sad state) is still standing. The land is now owned by a grandson of Minnie Mary Ferguson Rudy.

You may know all this but --- just in case.

Aunt Esther's notes also say that Agnes Blythe Finlay was asked to name a school (Rose Bank School) that was built in the area (Jasper County) in 1878.

I hope to hear from you again with any information that you would pass along. I have a lot of questions.

Thanks, Judy
