  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Geshurites 
  (1.)  The  inhabitants  of  Geshur.  They  maintained  friendly 
  relations  with  the  Israelites  on  the  east  of  Jordan  (Josh.  12:5; 
  13:11,  13). 
 
  (2.)  Another  aboriginal  people  of  Palestine  who  inhabited  the 
  south-west  border  of  the  land.  Geshuri  in  Josh.  13:2  should  be 
  "the  Geshurite,"  not  the  Geshurites  mentioned  in  ver.  11,  13, 
  but  the  tribe  mentioned  in  1  Sam.  27:8.
