I don’t see the connection myself. Joe Ferguson was signed from Shreveport Woodlawn high school in La. Feb. 1969 recruiting class.
A John Booty was signed from the same high school in 1970. He only stay at Arkansas for one year before transferring to another school. Booty was the father of the # one rated high school QB in 90s who sign to play pro baseball and later play for LSU.

From the article:
“General has a blood line that you need to follow closely. His mother is the sister of Joe Ferguson, a long time NFL quarterback with the Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions,” Jenkins said. “He (Ferguson) played about 20 years in the NFL. His granddad, Johnny Booty was one of the highly recruited quarterbacks coming out of America years ago from Shreveport Woodlawn, which is the same school Ferguson and Terry Bradshaw (NFL Hall of Fame – 1989) went to.”
“His dad (Abram Booty), who I still think holds records at LSU for receiver, is an NFL guy. His uncle, John David Booty played in the NFL and Josh Booty, his uncle, was in the NFL and played Major League Baseball.”
I believe Joe had one sister Carolyn.
Carolyn married Joe Raymond Peace. Maybe a grandson?
I remember some time ago about 1996 when Arkansas lost recruiting battle to Tn. on LB Robert Peace. Robert who is Joe Ferguson’s nephew, sign with Tn when Joe was the QB Coach at Arkansas.
John Chavis got Robert Peace to Tennessee as they finished 10-2 that year. (Arkansas 4-7)
