Okay, SOMEBODY out there must have heard of this man. I realize that he was probably not the "bright shining star" of the family, but surely someone has heard of him. Wilbur Furrow was born February 12, 1870 in Chilicothe, Ross, OH. He died on January 26, 1943 in Colorado Springs, CO. Married Mary Jane "Molly" Eaton on March 24, 1895. They had three children, Freddie, and twin girls Rillie and Lillie. Lillie died in a fire at the age of 4. He and Mary Jane were divorced and he never remarried to the best of my knowledge. Wilbur's parents were Edward and Callie Meyer Furrow. Wilbur may have also gone by the name of William. He died in the Union Printers Home. His son Freddie was not an upstanding citizen, so to speak. He spent time in the boys home as a child. For what, I don't know. He lost contact with the family, Wilbur told my grandmother around 1942 that Freddie was dead.
