Jane,
I think you may have answered many researchers questions about exactly who Serena FURR who married Labon SMITH really is! This certainly makes sense to me. Everyone of us has been trying to find her as a FURR and couldn't.

Do you have the information on where Labon and Serena are buried? I have a copy of the book "Abandoned Cemeteries of Stanly Co. NC" and it shows them in Conrad Eudy Cemetery off Highway 24-27W on left toward Bear Creek Hill. On line at Stanly Co. cemetery site this cemetery is listed as Gilbert-Smith Cemetery. There are eight SMITHs listed in this cemetery.
Labon was born 06 Jul 1827 died 27 Jan 1906.
M. S. SMITH, his wife, born 17 Mar 1835 died 31 Jul 1911. Three of their sons are also here: Allen born 04 Mar 1873 - 04 Sep 1887
Josiah 20 Aug 1866 - 01 Sep 1887
Isaac 11 Aug 1870 01 Sep 1887

Don't know the other three SMITHs listed:
Sapyh SMITH (written with backward S) died Apr the 19th 1863 There is a comment: should this be Sarah?
Martha SMITH died 1856
LI. SMITH died 1850

I've been researching the FURR family for a number of years and just in the last few years found where my own line fits.

I guess sometimes it takes someone else to figure out the relationships in the family. Thanks for you suggestion. I believe you are right!
