5. Since Margaret RYAN WHITE FERGUSON is your direct ancestor, you may be
interested in a theory of mine. I think Margaret's parents may be Abner and
Ann (or Fanny) RYAN (spelled RHINE in the 1860 Johnson Co., MO, census.
They lived near Margaret in the 1860 census; Fanny lived near her in 1870
(apparently Abner had died); and there is an Abner RYAN in the 1840 census
in Rhea Co., TN, where many of the Johnson Co. people came from. Haven't
found them in the 1850 Johnson Co. census and don't have access to the Rhea
Co. census for that year. I have no proof, only speculation. It might be
worth investigating if you're interested in that line.
