      LEONARD I (1758 - 1835) was the first Furrer born in North Carolina. Since he was born at the same time his family arrived at Cold Water Creek, his infancy may have been a major factor in his father's decision to remain there. With this in mind, it is ironic to note that all but one of his children left North Carolina to settle elsewhere, and in later life he himself moved to Mississippi. Leonard I was only 11 years old when his father died in 1769. Although he received an equal value of the estate, he did not inherit any land. He purchased land in Moore County and farmed it. He married Elizabeth Stutts, sister of Paul I's second wife, Mary Stutts. They had eight children: Leonard, Elizabeth, Jacob, Paul, Henry, Christian, Isham, and Mary. While Leonard II remained in North Carolina, Paul left for Georgia, and the rest of the children moved to Mississippi. Sometime after 1810, Leonard I moved to Mississippi where he died at the age of 77. He was buried in Copiah County near Allen, Mississippi.

      DESCENDANTS OF LEONARD I

      The descendants of Leonard I were primarily wealthy landholders and merchants in Mississippi and Georgia. They were Protestants, generally of the Baptist faith. The descendants of Leonard I intermarried with the Pierce family of Georgia. They too enjoyed large families and long lives.

      SONS OF LEONARD I

      PAUL FURR (1786 - 1867)

      Was born in Moore County, North Carolina. He moved to Banks County, Georgia in 1811 when he was 25. Here he bought land from the Cherokee Indians along Hagan's Creek. In 1813, he was commissioned an Ensign by Peter Early, the Governor of Georgia. He joined the 374th Georgia Militia and fought in the War of 1812 at the Battle of New Orleans for which he later received a pension. In 1815, he married Sarah Griffith. They had 11 children. He slept on a bearskin prior to his marriage. Four of his sons and one of his grandsons fought in the Civil War and three died in that war. In 1837, his first wife died, and in 1850 he married Mahala Dobbins. He was 64 years old at the time. Dying at the age of 81, he was buried in Hall County, Georgia.

      HENRY FURR (1790 - 1880)

      Was born in North Carolina but moved to Mississippi. He owned a very successful plantation in Mississippi along the Little Bahala Creek. He married Mary Pierce. They had 11 children. When he died at the age of 90, his estate was valued at $40,000. Henry and his family are buried in the Henry Furr private cemetery, located east of Beauregard, Lincoln County, Mississippi.

      CHRISTIAN FURR (1792 - 1850)

      Was born in North Carolina but moved to Mississippi. He also owned a plantation on Little Bahala Creek. In 1812, he married Catherine Pierce. They had 13 children. So like his brother, Henry, Christian lived on Little Bahala Creek and married a Pierce. Eight of his sons and one of his grandsons fought in the Civil War and two died in that war. When he died at the age of 58, his estate which included five slaves was valued at $20,000. He is buried in the Jacob Furr Cemetery, Lincoln County, Mississippi.

      ISHAM FURR (1794 - 1840)

      Like his brothers Henry and Christian, was born in North Carolina and moved to Mississippi. In 1836, he bought 40 acres of land from the United States for $1.29 per acre. The land was on Fords Creek that joins Little Bahala Creek at his brother's property. He had five children and died at the age of 46. His brother Jacob was administrator of his estate.
