I wonder if your Malcolm Sr. came straight to Yancey County, NC when he came to this country, or if he came from Lincoln or Rutherford County into Yancey County like most of the other McCurry's did? The reason I ask is that my husband's McCurry line goes back to William Federick McCurry who was born in 1718 on the Isle of Islay, Scotland. He died in Lincoln County, NC on 3/19/1789. A lot of his descendants made their way over to Rutherford County and some eventually went to Yancey County. My husband's grandfather, gr-grandfather and g-g-grandfather lived and died in McDowell County, NC, where we live today. With your Malcolm coming from the same place as our William Frederick, and being born about the same time, I wonder if they could have been brothers?
