ALLEN FURR (1820 - 1872)
Son of Paul II, possessed great physical strength. Reportedly, he could lift a 50 gallon keg of liquor with his bare hands and drink from the spout. He married Eva Fink of Dutch ancestry. They had five children. On June 14, 1862 at age 42 he enlisted as a Private in Company E, 4th North Carolina Cavalry. He was present and accounted for by his unit through October 1864,
after which the records are lost.

I have additional information from our Furr Family History: Allen married Eva A. Frank whose mother was a Myers who came from Holland. He lived to be 52 years of age. His wife, Eva A. was born May 16, 1823, and lived to be 82 years of age. They are buried in Center Grove Methodist Church Cemetery, of which they were members.
