George G. Gurley, born in Hopkinton August 19, 1825, located at Chateaugay in 1851, where for several years
he was station agent, then deputy collector of customs, and also a dealer in produce and lumber. He was elected
sheriff as a Republican in 1863, and after the expiration of his term made his home in Malone, engaging in the
tin and stove business, and afterward in dry goods with D. F. Seper and. E. R. Hott. He was elected supervisor
in 1886, and continued to hold the office until his death. It was said of him that he was always "helping
some one every day of his life," and when he died thousands of dollars in worthless notes were found among
his papers. As the key to understanding of his big heart and character it needs only to add that these in no way
impeached his sagacity, but merely confirmed the quoted estimate of him. In temperament he was remarkably self
poised, and his judgment of the best. He died March 20, 1891.
