The Furbish Family Papers

The Furbish Family Papers cover a broad assortment of topics as well as a wide time frame. The papers listed below have been transcribed from the original documents and provide a more detailed look at the history of the Furbish family. The spelling has not been corrected to meet today's standards. Because of space constraints, only two scanned images of these papers are included.

Listed are all of the documents that will eventually be posted here, although only those documents with links have been transcribed.
