These are a few Gourley's from the south. Remember folks may have used a different spelling at times so may be another spelling I don't know about. 1800 census Robert Abbeville SC, James in Beaufort SC, Jospeh in Chesterfield SC, William in Darlington SC, Hugh Fairfield SC, Joseph in Marion SC, 1810 Hugh Buscombe NC, Ann in Charleston SC, Thos Chester SC, Joseph Loudon VA, Jospeh Waterford Loudon Va, David Norfolk Va, 1820 Sumner C. Tn. Mary males 1-10=1, females 26-44=1 Since Margaret Gourley who married Samuel 4.3.9 Pharr was born 1795 the Mary in Sumner C. has to be the mother or a sister in-law. Also on the 1810 census there is a Hugh in Buscombe NC and there were some Pharr's in that area also. I know this is not much. Let me know if you find more.
