BIRTH     5 Aug 1812, Madison County, Kentucky, USA
DEATH     5 Dec 1880 (aged 68), Hagener, Cass County, Illinois, USA
     Jonathon Jeptha Wagle was born on 5 May 1812 in Foxtown, Madison County, Kentucky, USA. He was the son of John Wagle (1785-1870) and Mary Owens Wagle (1789 and 1860). He married Phebe Todd in Madison County, Kentucky on 10 February 1833. They were the parents of eleven children, ten daughters and one son: Juliann, Sarah, Mary Ann, Nancy R., Isaac Todd (all born in Madison County, Kentucky before the family moved to Cass County, Illinois), Malinda, Esther B., Elizabeth, Arthussy Jane, Cynthia Ann, and Martha Ellen Wagle. Please see Phebe Wagle's site for information regarding the marriages for all the children.
     Jonathon Jeptha and Phebe Wagle are buried in a field in Hagener Township in Cass County. Their stone is the only one that can be found in this location. The stone is located on the south side of South Hagener Road between the railroad track and the first house on the south side of the road. It cannot be seen when the crops are in the field. There are no houses or buildings close to the site where they are buried but perhaps they farmed the ground at one time where they are now laid to rest.
     Jonathon Jeptha Wagle died on 5 December 1880 and is buried in what will now be known as Wagle Cemetery even though there is only one stone at this burial site.

; Bryan & Rose [1876:332-3]: "Ferguson.—Joshua Ferguson, of Fairfax county, Va., was a wagon master in the revolutionary war. After the close of the war he settled in Kentucky, where he married Mary Stone, by whom he had—John S., William, James, Polly, Sally, Nancy, Elizabeth, and Rachel. Mr, Ferguson came to Missouri and settled in Callaway county in 1817. His son, John S., married Mary Jones, of Kentucky, and settled in Callaway county the same year his father did. He had fifteen children, twelve of whom lived to be grown, viz. : Thomas J., Elizabeth, John R., William S., Joshua, J., Sarah, Marion, Louisa, Nancy, Emma, Jane, and Lucy. Joshua aqd Thomas built the first court house at Fulton, in 1826, for which they received $1,300. Such a house could not be built now for less than four or five thousand dollars. James Ferguson married Mary A. McGruder, of Kentucky, and settled in Callaway county in 1817. Rebecca married Dennis Askrens, who settled in Callaway county in 1817. Nancy married George Hirsch, who settled in Callaway county in 1823."9
; Some family trees have named this Rawleigh's wife as Mary "Polly" Ferguson, but I believe that she she married the Raleigh who was the son of John and Elizaeth (Forbes) Humphrey.

The Mary Ann "Polly" Ferguson who married Raleigh "Ralei (1777-1827) was apparently born in Kentuck, not in VA where Rawleigh Humphrey (c1768-aft 1850) lived all his life.10

Mackenzie & Rhodes [1912:II:605] mentions "Thomas Lewis (raised a company of soldiers for Revolutionary War at Fairfax Court House Ca., and was a t Siege of Yorktown) and his wife, Judith (Ferguson) Lewis, dau. of Joshua Ferguson of Fairfax Co., Va."
     According to her Find A Grave memorial (image of grave marker attached), this Judith was born in 1747, before John Calvin FERGUSON was born (1753). A SAR Application for Lt. Thomas Lewis states that Judith's father, Joshua, died in Fiarfax Co., VA in 1770. Furthermore, Joshua mentioned no dau. Judith or grandchildren surnamed Lews is in his 1836 will (n which he listed eleven children.6,7,8,9

; Bryan & Rose [1876:332-3]: "Ferguson.—Joshua Ferguson, of Fairfax county, Va., was a wagon master in the revolutionary war. After the close of the war he settled in Kentucky, where he married Mary Stone, by whom he had—John S., William, James, Polly, Sally, Nancy, Elizabeth, and Rachel. Mr, Ferguson came to Missouri and settled in Callaway county in 1817. His son, John S., married Mary Jones, of Kentucky, and settled in Callaway county the same year his father did. He had fifteen children, twelve of whom lived to be grown, viz. : Thomas J., Elizabeth, John R., William S., Joshua, J., Sarah, Marion, Louisa, Nancy, Emma, Jane, and Lucy. Joshua aqd Thomas built the first court house at Fulton, in 1826, for which they received $1,300. Such a house could not be built now for less than four or five thousand dollars. James Ferguson married Mary A. McGruder, of Kentucky, and settled in Callaway county in 1817. Rebecca married Dennis Askrens, who settled in Callaway county in 1817. Nancy married George Hirsch, who settled in Callaway county in 1823."10 GAV-5.
;
I believe that I may have confounded two different William FERGUSONS. One was the son of Joshua FERGUSON (1753-1836), as recorded as deceased in Joshua's 1836 will, and one who married Lucinda Ann FRY, the dau. of Isaac FRY (as recorded in an unknown book seen on Ancestry.com). It is possible that there were two Joshuas and and both had sons named William.5,11

Joshua Calvin Ferguson began military service between 1776 and 1781 at Revolutionary War, Fairfax Co., Virginia, USA,

Transcript of pension application seen on Ancestry.com, originally posted by Coleen9531 on 17 Mar 2012:
     "Joshua applied for pension 19 February 1833 at Cote Sans Dessein township. His age 79. He swears he was born County of Fairfax Virginia 8th December 1752, and lived there 'till 1776/7. All pages of this document were hard to read.
     "We began to be very much disturbed by the inroads of the British who came up the Potomac in vessels for the purpose of foraging, getting provisions and burning the property of the inhabitants when it became necessary to raise milita for the puirpose of repelling these inreads of the enemy...that I accordingly in one of these years, which I do not recollect because a number of militia company by one Captain John Wren which company was part of the regiment commanded during the whole war by Col. Peter Wagoner, James Wren, and Thomas Triplet were also colonels in company commanded by one Captain John Wren to which I belonged was subject to be called out at moments warning and accordingly it happened sometimes that I had to leave my family and home in the month of a harvest. I can not recollect the precise times when I and the company to which I belonged were engaged in actual service but well recollects that upon several occasions we marched some times to General Washington's house to protect it from the invasions of the enemy where we would remain for several weeks at a time and sometimes to Alexandria where I together with the company spent several months at one time in building batteries for cannon for the defence of the Town. This species of service continued pretty much from the year '78 until the end of the war, as the British Ships visited the Potomac during that time frequently for the purpose of plunder or annoyance and succeeded in burning the residence of Col. Lyle and Col. ? of Stafford and often succeeded in obtaining plunder. I never was in any action with the enemy, who were generally near their ships and would retire upon the appearance of the American forces except in some few instances. I believe that I was absent from home upon this sort of service during the last three summers during the revolutionary war. In addition to the purformance of this sort of duty I with all the militia men of Fairfax County were subject to drafts for the continental army and as I was poor and had a wife and children to take care of I was unable to leave home upon such long service and was therefore put to much expense in procuring a person to become soldier to service for my draft. In the year '84 I moved from my native county and emigrated to Kentucky where I settled and remained until the year eighteen hundred and sixteen when I came to this County where I now live. While in Kentucky I was much exposed to dangert from Indians in common with the other settlers and employed a substitute to go in my place on an expedition against the savages. I had a large family and could not leave home myself with great inconvenience. I have not stated all the material facts relative to my revolutionary services as far as my recollection leaves me and states that my memory as well as my body has suffered from the wounds of time."

;
Bryan & Rose [1876:332-3] discusses two FERGUSON families of Virginia who moved to Callawy Co. The first to arrive was the family of Joshua and Mary STONE) FERGUSON of Fairfax Co., VA, who arrived in 1817. Bryan & Rose list eight children:
     -- John S.
     -- William
     -- James
     -- Polly
     -- Sally
     -- Nancy
     -- Elizabeth
     -- Rachel
The second was the family of John and France (LUCAS) FERGUSON of VA who arrived in 1820. Bryan & Rose list nine children:
     -- Moses
     -- Ann
     -- John
     -- Sarah
     -- Nancy
     -- Swan
     -- Napoleon
     -- Mary
Both families are found in the 1830 census for that county:
1. Joshua, with his two sons, James and John.
2. Several sons and/or grandsons of John: Moses I and Moses 2, Swan and Napoleon.
     NB: It's not entirely clear which of the two FERGUSON families that the 1830 John FERGUSON belongs too, but it seems to me most likely that he is the son of Joshua since he is next to James (a son of Joshua). However, there is a Moses, a Swan and a Napoleon on the same page (members of the 2nd FERGUSON family.
     It is possible that the two families were related, but two different family trees on Ancestry.com show the father of John, head of family #2, to have been a Capt. Robert FERGUSON and no linkage to the family of Joshua.This agrees with Bryan & Rose [1876:332] who says that John's "...father was a sea captain."24,25,26,27

Joshua Calvin Ferguson appeared in the census of 7 August 1820 at Shelby Co., Kentucky, USA;
This may not be the same Joshua FERGUSON, as the ages do not necessarily match and there is no wife present. Bryan & Rose [1876:332] state that Joshua had moved to Callaway Co., MO by 1817, so he probably shouldn't have appeared in the KY census for that year. If it is the same Joshua, he is on the same page as his son, William FERGUSON (line 17) and William's father-in-law, Isaac Fry (line 6).

     Pension Application - Revolutionary War: Joshua Ferguson
     "In order to obtain the benefit of the ___ of cover __ __ 7th of June 1832.
     State of Missouri County of Callaway
     On this [blank] day of May in the year of our Lord in one thousand eight hundred and thirty four personally appeared in open court before John Conger; James McKinny and Larkin Craig judges thereof, it being the County Court of Callaway County aforesaid, at the May Term of the said Court, Joshua Ferguson, a resident of Cotesandein Township in the County of Callaway aforesaid, aged about eighty one years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his oath make the following statement and declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the provisions of the act of congress passed seventy of June 1832. -
     I was born in the County of Fairfax in the State of Virginia on the eighth day of December in the year seventeen hundred and fifty three where I continued to reside until the year 1784 - in the year '76 or '77, I can not be certain which, we began to be very much annoyed by the inroads of the British who came up the Potomac in vessels for the purpose of foraging, getting provisions and burning the property of the inhabitants, when it became necessary to raise troops to repel the for the purpose of repelling these inroads of the enemy - I was belonged at that time to Captain Wrens company of Militia of Fairfax - this company and some others along the Potomac were under the command of Col. Waggoner and Lieut Col Triplet were reserved and kept us minute men for the purpose of marching at any point on the river where the enemy should appear, at a moments warning we were not drafted and I do not recollect whether we volunteered or not, but I am inclined to think that we did not, but were ordered, as the militia of that part of the country, had been exposed to a great burden for the support of the war. - I can not at this day recollect the precise times where our company marched, but I recollect very well that upon innumerable occasions we were ordered to march and did march sometimes to Genl Washington's house to protect it from the invasions of the enemy where we would remains for several weeks at a time, some times to Alexandria where I along with my company spent several months at a time in building batteries for cannon for the defence of the Town - This species of service continued from the year '76 or '77 until the close of the revolutionary, as the british ships during the whole of that time very frequently visited the Potomac for the purpose of plunder and succeeded in burning the residence of Col Lyle on the Maryland side and afterward went to Col ____ in Stafford on the Virginia side upon the retiring of the british down the river we were generally permitted to return to our several homes until again wanted which very frequently occured, it seems to me that it much has been I know well that we were several times called upon whilst at times when our marching was almost the cause of starvation to our families, once I remember in the midst of harvest time when became compelled to remain on the watch for several weeks in consequence of which our crops were nearly lost - It so happened that I was not did not during all this service get into an action with the enemy, though other companies did as the british were generally not very far from their ships and would retire to them upon the approach of the our forces except in a very few instances - I was not discharged by Capt. Wren that I know of - when the war was closed there being no farther need for our services and we were permitted to remain at home - It is impossible to me to state with any thing like exactness, at this day, the length of time that I was engaged in service - properly speaking it seems to me that I might well consider my self in service from the time of the first organization of our company as minute men in 76 or 77 until the close of the war, for although it is true that we were occasionally permitted to go home and attend to our families farms, yet the great uncertainty as to the time which we would be permitted to remain there prevented us from being able to do much any thing of much consequence; and besides, it was generally in the spring, summer & fall & particularly in the summer that our services was most frequently called into requisition but counting the time of my service only the time that I was actually out from my house actively employed guarding the country and protecting the inhabitants I find by reference to my former statement that I set it down at "three summers" and I can not believe that it was at all short of that time - by three summers I mean three whole summers or about nine months - I am now nearly eighty one years of age. I have tried to recollect more particularly - but I find my memory has failed me and that however I may suffer in consequence of it I can not be more particular as to what I have been speaking - I well know that had it not been for the extraordinary exertion of my wife who was under the necessity of laboring in the fields on account of my absence - my family would in all probability have suffered, I can not say to what degree ---- In addition to the performance of the above named services, I was in common with all the militia of Fairfax subject to drafts for the regular service, when every sixteen men had to furnish a soldier for the continental army and as I was poor and had a wife & children to take care of I was unable to leave home upon such long services and was therefore put to an expence which I was illy able to bear in procuring or assisting to procure soldiers for my class [?] . In the year '84 I removed with my family from my native county to Kentucky where I settled and remained there until the year eighteen hundred and sixteen when I came to this country and settled in the county of Callaway where I now reside - whilst in Kentucky my family was much exposed to danger from the Indians - in common with all the Settlers of that country - and employed a substitute to march in my place on a campaign against the savages, as my family was large and I could not leave home without great inconvenience - I have now stated all that I can distinctly recollect on the subject of my revolutionary services, I have out lived my contemporaries and therefore know of no one living who knew me during the revolutionary war - I am not on the pension roll of the United States nor of an state and have never applied for a pens or received any pay or pension for or on account of my revolutionary services - except the application which I made under the law under which I am now applying and which appears to have been rejected because I could not recollect what day my service commenced and ended and how long it lasted and also on account of some deficit in the authentication I did not learn the fate of my application until a long time after I had made it and as I live some 20 miles from the place and am still able to travel, I could not as I am advised renew my application but at a Court - for the officers with whom who commanded our troops & other circumstances I refer to my first statement - I knew Genl Washington, Major Fitzgerald of Fairfax who was one of his aids - also Capt West of Fairfax who went into the regular army and under whom one of my brothers enlisted. But I was not acquainted with many of the officers belonging to our regiment, because our services as minute men were required in detached companies and at different points. I have no record of my ages, but have seen it recorded in my Fathers family bible and my children, some of them are over fifty years old - I am well known to many people in this county some [?] of them knew me in Kentucky and I know some here who are the children of my old neighbors in Fairfax - I am known personally to some of the members of this court and particularly to John Conger, James McKinny, two of the judges who have known me some years and am acquainted with my character both here and in Kentucky - I am also known to George Bartley - Col. George King Hughbert Waugh & others. ---- I do hereby relinquish all claims to pay or amnesty for any against the government except the pension which I now ask. Joshua Ferguson [signature]
     Subscribed & sworn to in open court before me clerk of the County Court of Callaway Court, this 19th day of May AD 1834 -

; NB: I have started working on the ancestors of John Humphrey/Humphreys, using various resources from Ancestry and Ancestry/Rootsweb. For the moment, this looks like this:
?? ??? /Joseph Humphrey (unk- ca 1725/26
??? /William #? Humphrey (1721-1800)
???|??? Jane
John #1 Humphrey 1745-bef 1815
??? Sarah Ann Wood

FAG memorials have been created for two Williams:
FAG #185992756: William #1 born 6 Dec 1720 and had a son John #1 1745/50-1815;
FAG #191188673: William #2 born 2 Sep 1721 and had a son John #2 1724-1767

These two Williams may been cousins. Obviously, a John (#2) born 1724 could not have a father born in 1721. But I have not found any clear evidence as to which of the two Williams was actually the father of John #1 (who m. Elizabeth Forbes).
FAG memorial #185992756 for William #1 states:
"Note: He had a cousin William b. 21 Sept 1721, son of Joseph 1700-1725
This William, son of John b.abt 1697, d.abt 1741 [a bit notoriously unreliable]
King George County, VA Order Book 1726/34 part 2, pge 475, dated December 5, 1729, shows that one Jane Humphrey had bound (apprenticed) her two sons, William (born 9/21/1721) and John (born 10/15/1724) to John Bourne. An assumption is made here that the father of the two boys named did not appear on this order because he was deceased, the assumption is also made that it was necessary for Jane to apprentice her sons because her husband had died, limiting the family income.
A Joseph Humphreys (Humphrey) died January 22, 1725/26 per St. Paul's Parish records and was probably Jane's husband."8,2,9,10,11


; NB: As of 20 Jan 2022, Ancestry's DNA ThruLines show 48 DNA matches for me with six descendants of John Humphrey (c1750-c1815). See attached ThruLine chart 00. Four of them are by his 1st wife, Elizabeth (Forbes) (1765-1799) and two of htem by his 2nd wife Betsy (Brown) (1781-1819):
By 1st wife:
Rauley (var. sp.) - 24 Matches* (See attached ThruLine charts 01-01h)
John A. - 4 Matches (See attached ThruLine chart 03)
Benjamin - 8 Matches (See attached ThruLine charts 04a & 04b)
George (1) - 4 Matches (See attached ThruLine chart 05)
Sarah "Sally" P. - 1 Match (See attached ThruLine chart 01)
Jemima - 7 Matches (See attached ThruLine charts 06a & 06b)


*One match shown on ThruLines (that with Richard DuPont, "Half 6th cousin, 11cm 1 segment) appears to have a faulty family tree linking it to a different "Rawleigh" Humphrey. However, I believe that the match is to the same Rawleigh as I am descended from.12 John Humphrey was also known as John Humphries.13 GAV-5.

My John had a 1st wife named Elizabeth, but I have no record of a son named John. It also seems to show that he died in SC in 1815, not in KY (in the same year).

; From Find A Grave:
BIRTH     1778, Virginia, USA
DEATH     1850 (aged 71–72)
Hypothetical/Circumstantial suggestion:
1778 twins? Born the same year with
Abijah Bijes Humphrey 16 Nov 1778, d. 1813?
[There is a gap shown between Abijah b.1778 (b. 1780??) John b.1782]
Marriage 20 April 1797 in Hardin Co, Kentucky. She was 17 when she married Timothy Tichenor.
Has she married (2)William Humphrey August 04, 1837 in Ohio Co, Kentucky. Not likely...because her husband Timothy died in 1856. The 1840 Census Tichenor indicates age male between 60-70, female 50-60 and two female children between 5 and 15….living in Ohio Co, Kentucky.
Elizabeth "Betsy" Humphrey was born in 1778 at Virginia; Find A Grave memorial says b. 1780. She married Timothy Tichenor on 20 April 1797 at Hardin Co., Kentucky; her 1st husband.
Elizabeth "Betsy" Humphrey was mentioned with Benjamin Humphrey; Clipping "Humphrey Family Bible Record" by Mrs. Agnes D.

     We, the Baptist Church of Jesus, on Walton's Creek, Ohio County, Kentucky, constituted on Saturday the 9th of July, 1814 Thirty-eight members whose names are as follows:
     Religion played a prominent role in the lives of many Americans during the early 19th century — an era known as the Second Great Awakening that took off around the late 1820s and early 1830s. It was only natural that many Americans of the era saw religious significance in the timing of the deaths of Adams, Jefferson and Monroe.
     Her husband wrote his Last Will and Testament on 19th day of July 1847.
"After my just debts and funeral expense be paid I give my wife Elizabeth Humphrey, all my household and kitchen furniture including one third part of my sheep, two cows, one mare and colt, also one years provisions to have and dispose as she sees fit and proper, I further give my wife E.H. all my land including the mansion house during her natural life and after her disease, I give the same to my son Joseph and his heirs forever, he being under promise to assist in taking care of his mother."
     Her name appeared on the 1850 Census living with her son and his family.
     Her burial (and headstone) has not been found. Most likely buried along with her husband?
