Re: Isham & Fanny Wallace/Wallis, NC>Graves Co., KY
Susan, I am a descendant of Charles Furr, father ofyour Nancy Urinda Furr Wallis of Moore Co NC. My ancestor was, I think, Joseph Furr,a doctor, Charles' son who went with him to Dallas Co AL in about 1835, leaving his(Charles')wife Nancy (?Sowell) and their married children and youngest son, Leonard, in ?Moore Co.
There is a theory that Charles could be son of Joseph Fair who m. Nancy Choat, an Indian, and joined the Cherokee tribe. I have seen one claim that Urinda is an Indian name, although it appears with other surnames.
Do you have any information about the origin of the name as given to Nancy Furr Wallis?
I can give you data on Charles if you need it.Fay
