Well, one thing is for sure, when you find a Furnifold in your family tree, you've found something special! I mean, at least it should be an easy name to research right? Well, actually, it isn't as unique as it sounds if you're doing research in 18th century North Carolina - you find this given name with several surnames. I don't think that my Furnifold WOOD was the first of the Furnifolds, but whoever was must have been a special guy!
