I saw your Furlow family information that I am interested to learn about the possible deaf cousin relationship.I know that there is a museum at Arkansas School for the Deaf in Little Rock, AR.You may want to go and visit the museum someday if you are still livingin Arkansas.I knew Edgar Furlow very well when I was a kid at A.S.D. between 1956 and 1969.He used to work as a janitor or custodian at ASD. Most deaf kids loved him. After I researched my classmate's Lee ancestor, and found Lucy Furlow born in Union Co, SC in about 1800's and died in Alabama about 1838. She was married to Henry Lee who was also born in Union Co, SC.I am related to Henry Lee, but not Lucy Furlow who was related to my classmate.It happened that your ancestor was also from Union County, SC.
Today, I researched and found two Furlow men in 1779 and 1780 in 96th District, SC (Union County), and they were Samuel Furlow and William Furlow who might be either siblings or father and son relationship that I cannot confirm at the point of this research yet.I suspect that Samuel Furlow might be the father of your ancestor, Alexander Furlow born in 1769 because he had a son named Samuel Alexander Furlow born about 1800 in Tennessee.This is the information I collected from you.
I will be glad to share with you if I find any new information.I am still working on my classmate's Furlow ancestor.
