Purviance Family Genealogy Forum
I have seen many postings that claim Nancy Ferguson who married John Purviance in NC was the daughter of Judith Eldridge born 11 Mar 1742/3, and James Ferguson. Here's what I am questioning.
In Dorman's 4th edition of Adventurers of Purse and Persons, p. 34 he says that "Judith Eldrige, twin born 11 March 1742/3, daughter of Martha Bolling and Thomas ELdridge, married first Leonard Price who left a will dated 7 Jan 1772, probated 16 Mar 1772 and second, James Ferguson of "Fairfield" Goochland County VA. How can Nancy Ferguson be the daughter of the second marriage if she was born in 1763 (as is stated in all that I've seen) when the marriage couldn't have occurred before 1772 at the earliest?
Does anyone have any proof that Judith Eldridge Price Ferguson had a daughter Nancy and when she was born?
