Madison County History:
    Jeremiah B Chenoweth was the son of John F. Chenoweth amd Margaret (Ferguson) Chenoweth.  John Chenoweth was born in Kentucky in 1792 and moved to Franklin Co, OH at the age of 12.  Margaret Ferguson was born and reared in Franklin Co, OH although her parents were natives of Scotland and were of Scotch  -Irish descent.  Jeremiah was born 12 miles from Columbus on 22 Sep, 1816.  He was the 4th of 14 children, 2 died in infancy and 1 at the age of 13. AS OF 1892, seven were alive.  Lewis living in Sumner Co, KS.  Others living in Madison Co.
    John F Chenoweth was drafted for the War of 1812 but sent a substitute in his stead.  He started in life a poor man and made rails by the hundred but as fast as possible invested his earnings in land and became a wealthy farmer and stock owner.  He was a democrat up to the time of Jackson's administration when he became a Whig and in 1856 he joined the Republican ranks.  He was a staunch Abolitionist and a prominent citizen.  He served as County Commissioner of highways for many years, was Justice of the Peace for 20 years, was twice electd to the Ohio Legislature.  He took great delight in Hunting and was an expert marksman.
    Jeremiah stayed home and worked on the family farm until 25.  His father had to pay $30,000 and so Jeremaih claimed nothing and started out empty handed.

Per Franklin Co, OH Gen Soc the following people are researching Fergusons in Franklin Co, OH in the surname index of 1992. I have not contacted them:
Marilyn D Smith, 185 Willow St Hanford CA 93230. Ancestor is Anna F. b: 1799 KY? d: aft 1847 m: Solomon Husted.  
John Waggoner, 2683 Vassar PL, Columbus, OH 43221-Ancestor is Elizabeth F. m: Sampson Rice pos in VA ca 1817.

Ohio Source Records  p 415 says that the Columbus Genealogical Soc has a Bible record for families of Herron-Tylor-Ferguson.  Don't know anything more about this.  Does not sound like a bible record we already have nor does it sound likely to apply.




 Out of all this, I believe that the family may have been in Lexington, Kentucky at one time. I am also of the opinion that Martha was the daughter of Thomas Ferguson, Senior, and his wife, Mary who was mentioned in his estate records.  Note the Mary who is buried in the Chenowith Cemetery in Pleasant Township.
Mary Ferguson, wife of Thomas, died 10 May 1848 aged about 90 years.  This would make her born in 1858, the right age to be the mother of a bunch of these people, including Martha Cullumber. She was buried in the Chenowith Cemetery, which suggests that Margaret (Ferguson) Chenowith might have been her daughter.  This Margaret was married in 1811. Margaret Cullumber, the orphan daughter of John and Martha Cullumber was living with Margaret Ferguson in  1850.  Those Fergusons who survived seem to have been born in Kentucky.
    In the War of 1812 records of Ohio, there is a Captain Thomas Ferguson, and a John Culluber out of Ross County.

I have trouble believing that all these connections are mere coincidences.
