    • Margaret E. Wilson was born in 1861. She had the dubious honor of being the bride of George W. McCourry (1859-1937), whom she married on March 7, 1880. George McCourry was an infamous character in the history of Yancey County and has been the subject of much discussion. Contemporary newspapers described McCurry as, "a terror not only to Yancey County, but to many other counties in Western North Carolina and adjacent parts of Tennessee." (for more on the deeds of George McCurry, see News From Yancey, ed. Dr. Lloyd Bailey, Yancey Graphics, 1983, pages 65-73.) George is remembered by the Wilson family as being a wild, "red-haired Irishman." The couple resided on Jack's Creek. Margaret died in 1912. [family tradition from Charles C. Wilson]
