Johnson, Henry, Joseph Furr and Rose (Rosie) White
Posted by: Bill Furr (ID *****5224) Date: September 15, 2007 at 12:19:28
  of 1059

Looking for the lineage of the following Furrs. I have not been able to locate them in the census records, except for Rose (Rosie) White Furr who is shown as a widow in the 1920 census. If this is true then then Henry Furr I show her married to might be the wrong one.

1. Johnson FURR.

Johnson FURR had the following children:

2. Henry FURR was born in 1854 in Loudoun County, VA. He died on 17 Jun 1928 in Virginia. He was buried in Union Cemetery, Leesburg, Loudoun County, VA.

He married Rose (Rosie) WHITE (daughter of Joseph WHITE and Ann) was born on 18 Oct 1847 in Virginia. She died on 27 Sep 1929 in Virginia. This is from a copy of "Sign of the Times". Mrs. Rosie White Furr, our sister in Christ, passed away from this earthly life at her home, Adamstown, Maryland, September 27th, 1929. She was born October 18th, 1847, making her stay in this world nearly 82 years. Her parents were brother Joseph and sister Ann White, both deceased several years ago. She is survived by one sister and four brothers: Mrs. Mary E.W. Pratt, of Morgantown, W. Va., Mr. John White, of Terre Haute, Ind., Mr. Furr White of Poolsville, Md., brother B. Frank White and Mr. Arthur White, both of Adamstown, Md. Sister Rosie was married many years ago to Mr. Henry Furr, son of Johnson Furr, and nephew of the late Elder Joseph Furr. Her husband preceded her to the grave several years ago. To them had been born three girls all of who died of diphtheria in rapid succession. To these sorrows which had befallen her she was in addition afficted with blindness. Her life was indeed one of suffering and sore trails, yet was she given grace through the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to bear all patiently and without either complaint or murmur. She was baptized by the late Elder Furr, in 1877, into the New Valley Old School Baptist Church, and at the time of her death was the oldest of our members in the New Valley Church, both in age and in membership. She had not been in good health for many months, had been confined to her room since June of this year, but not all the time in bed. The end came to her very peacefully. She was in her right mind to the last, but suffered no pain when death came, just falling peacefully asleep as a tired child might in the bosom of its mother. Services were held at the home in Adamstown on Monday afternoon, September 30th, the writer speaking from the fifteenth chapter of first Corinthians. Burial was in Union Cemetery, at Leesburg, Virginia. May the Lord comfort the bereaved family and church, giving us the blessed assurance that for our sister to depart and be with Christ is her eternal gain.

She was buried in Union Cemetery, Leesburg, Loudoun County, VA. Also known as Rosie.

3. Joseph P. FURR died on 27 Apr 1918 in Virginia. He was buried in Union Cemetery, Leesburg, Loudoun County, VA.
