Henry Furr received a deed from Royal Governor, Arthur Dobbs on 24 June, 1762 for 301 acres of land lying on the waters of Dutch Buffalo Creek in Anson County, which was soon to be Mecklenburg. Deed Book 6, page 161. The deed must be read with care as the surveyor used half chains; ie a chain of length 33 feet. Other surveys at this time and in the same area also used this peculiar length for a chain. See this surveying link.

Supposedly, he purchased from Henry Plyer a 185 acre tract on Adams Creek a few miles north of his homeplace. The deed (Mecklenburg --Bk 3 pg 47 , 20 Sept. 1767) was issued in the name of Henry Forrer. This 185 acre tract was not mentioned in his will of 22 Sept., 1769 just before he died. He did will his son John the 301 acre homeplace and Paul a 106 acre tract ...... "Item. I give devise and bequeth unto my second and loveing son Paul Forror . . . lying between my lands and Paul Berring ."
No deed was located for this tract of land! However, it was well known to the neighboring land holders that this was Paul Furr's land. Paul willed it to Daniel and still no deed. It appears that George W. Scott had about 86 acres of the tract by the early 1850's as he obtained a grant for 6 1/4 acres of land adjoining his own.

Paul obtained a 240 acre grant (#60) that adjoined on the east Henry's original lands. He in turn willed this to his son Daniel.

Paul Barringer's plantation, Poplar Grove, was along the northern tier. After his death in the early 1800's this large plantation was broken up and sold by his heirs. The Furr's tended to "hold on" to their land even up to this day!
