U.S. States: Missouri: Gentry County
I just saw your query about the town of McCurry. This was located on the south side of the Wabash tracks 7 miles from Albany which is the county seat. This is in ooper township and is handsomely situated, surrounded by fine agricultural region. Plat was filed in 1879 by Western Improvement Co. The town was named for William McCurry who resided in that part of the township for many years. I found this in an old book at the Hannibal MO library, unfortunately I did not document the source.
I am descended from the McCurry family, from a bro of Wm., James. James daughter, Martha Jane "Mattie" McCurry was my g grandmother and she lived with us when I was a child. She had many stories of her life in the South during the Civil War. After the war, the family was forced to leave TN because of their strong Union sympathies. They came to Gentry co MO where James' brothers Wm. and Mathue (note spelling) had previously settled. I have fairly complete info on this branch of the family and would be happy to share.
