Charles Brookshire Furr/Lyda Adell Williams Family

Updated July 31, 2001

About Our Family Research


Charles Brookshire Furr married Lyda Adell Williams 3 Dec 1932.
Lyda died 5 Dec 1934, 3 months after the birth of her son, Charles. Her parents were John Williams, born in Arkansas or TX.
and Roxie Gray, believed to be born in Arkansas. Roxie died of
tuberculosis around 1932. Lyda developed TB while nursing her
mother. She had sisters named Tulah Le Master and Dorothy; and brothers, Lyle, Ruben "Rube", George and Billie.

One brother (Rube?) had a used car or junk yard business in
Los Angeles area, CA. Tulah lived in ARkansas.

We are searching for further information on Furrs and Williams,
but especially need info on Lyda's family and ancestors.

Have found that two Holland Furr or Fuer brothers were conscripted by England's King George in the 1800's and they
jumped ship in Florida. It is said one settled in Kentucky and
one in North Carolina.
