JARED W. WESTBERRY
(RICHARD FURMAN2, MOSES1) was born April 15, 1849 in Appling Co, Georgia, and died September 26, 1926 in Wayne Co, Georgia. He married NANCY L. BENNETT March 28, 1870 in Georgia, daughter of JOHN BENNETT and LUCY HARRIS. She was born March 31, 1852 in Appling Co, Georgia, and died May 05, 1919 in Wayne Co, Georgia.
Notes for JARED W. WESTBERRY:
He was a farmer and a Baptist minister.
There is no family I can presently attach Jared to. The 1850-1860 census does not show him with the Furman, Rabon or Noah Sr families. Some say that he was a son of Furman, so we shall leave him here.
A case can be made that David in 1850 and James in 1860 is the same as Jared in Furman’s census records.
I have a copy of his death certificate, Georgia #22940. His age is listed as 80 years old. The year of birth cannot be determined as it was written over. It looks to be 1846 with a 9 written over the 6.
It does list Furman and Lucy as his parents. The informant is his son, Benjamin Franklin.
After extensive research, I have come to the conclusion that in the Richard Furman Westberry, CSA family, that Jared W. Westberry was the last child of Josiah Westberry, born in 1846-49, his father, Josiah, dying before his birth. Richard took him in to raise him.
