States: North Carolina: Surry
I am trying to find a distant cousin of mine who I think might have been adopted due to the following reason(s). His name is (or was) Gurney William OR William Gurney Marion, he was born May 8th 1930 in Guilford Co., NC (s/o William Thomas Marion & Susan Byerly). Gurney's father murdered Gurney's mother in their home sometime between 1930-1933; as Susie's mother did not died in 1933 and Susie nor Gurney were mentioned in the death notice. I have heard from cousins that Tom murdered his wife in their home and drug her severe cut up body through Davidson Co., NC when the police got a hold of him. I really do not know any more that what is here. I was only able to pull Gurney's birth info and have yet to go to the Deeds Office to get more information. I believe Gurney lived (or lives) in Surry Co., NC. As that is where he was sent to live when Tom was put in prison.
