Harriett Elizabeth Gurley
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 24, 1850, USA
Death: Dec. 12, 1885, USA

Harriett Gurley moved to the Toe Rives Valley area from elsewhere; her background and family are unknown. She was born in the 1850's.

There is a Gurley family with a daughter Harriett listed on the 1860 McDowell Census; Household #48 list James "Gurly"
(1)Harriett age 8
(2)Heny(?) age 6
(3)William age 1

This is perhaps the Harriett Gurley who later moved to Mitchell County, but this is by no means certain.

According to a marriage record, William F. Davis married Harriett Gurle on Oct 2,1873 in Mitchell County,NC Other documents list Tom Davis (presumably the same person as "Willilam F.Davis") and Harriett Gurley as the parents of two children:
(1)Eddie Davis b:1875
(2)Queenie Davis b:12-16-1876 d:07-27-1932 married Jessie Bud Spark. Burried Liberty Hill Cem. Mitchell Co.

Harriett Gurley and Tom Davis seperated, and the two children were placed in the custody of their grandfather Allen Davis. According to family tradition, Harrett Gurley may have remarried more than once.

No marriage recorded for Joseph "Jute" Boone and Harriett Gurley has been found. They are probably listed together on the 1880 Mitchell Co. Census: the entry from Snow Creek Township is nearly illegible, but shows a J. P. (R?)Boone, age 18, his wife Harriett, age 24, and a young daughter who would be Ida. However, if this entry does refer to "Jute" Boone, then he would be listed on the census twice, for he appears with his parents, Robert and Naomi Boone.

(1)Ida Boone (03-09-1879, 11-24-1953) m Newton Young on Sept 13-1903
(2)John Nathan"Bud"Boone (May 25,1881, Aug.14,1963)
(Known as Bud Boone, probably to distinguish his from his first cousin, named John Nathan Boone, Bud Boone moved to Colorado about 1916, but he eventually returned to Mitchell County and is buried at Grassy Creek Cem.)
(3)Mallie (?) Boone b:ca.1884.

Joseph "Jute" Boone married Sarah Sparks(1873-1949)on Aug.24,1893 in Mitchell Co.Nc. She was the Dau. of Lewis Sparks.
(1)Lewis Robert Boone (July 11,1894, Dec.28,1943)not married. Drowned at Estatoe.
(2)Geneva Boone b:ca.1896 m ?Thomas.
(3)Plexie Boone b:ca.,1900
(4)James B. Boone b:ca.1902.Moved to Steinman,Va.
(5)Charlie Banner Boone (Jan,6,1910, June 10,1962)
