Wandering Wednesday: Mary Urquhart McRee

This is just a jotting down of an ongoing research project into Mary McRee, landowner of the tract in which McRee City, then McRee Town, then Botanical Heights are situated.  So it is very much a wandering – I hope to put everything together eventually!

Mary Urquart McRee was born in Wilmington, North Carolina in 1829.  I have to kick myself because I just got back from a trip to Wilmington and the outer banks of North Carolina.  I’ll just have to imagine the lines that connected our journey.
