There are two large Furr family groups in the United States.  The North Carolina Furrs (originally Furrer) and the Virginia Furrs.  They are not related.  The North Carolina Furrs immigrated from Switzerland around 1730/40.  The Virginia Furrs immigrated from England in 1655.  The North Carolina Furrs migrated to Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, and Texas.  The Virginia Furrs migrated to Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio.  The second largest number of Furrs in the world lives in the United Kingdom.
