You have been wonderful!!! Question away. I have to go over and take care of my mother for the next 3 hours, she has dementia, but will jump right on it when I get home.
Thanks the being so proactive in helping me. So many Curries, Currys.... makes me nuts and hard to figure out right person.
Would you believe I am working on it right now. I found a John Currie who was the father of George B Currie born in 1815, who has a wife Mary Ann. I see if I can find answers to what you asked.
Wow, thanks. Four eyes are better than one.
Yes, I understand. I have been looking in Philadelphia. I do know of a relative, a Nicholas Currie who's father was George Boyed Currie that lived in New Jersey. I have been trying to find out who George Boyed's father was because possibly he was a brother to John.
I really appreciate your...
I have found quite a few Curries but can't seem to figure out which one is correct. My grandfather John W. CURRIE was born in New Jersey. His father, John Currie was born in Philadelphia and lists his father John as being born in Scotland and his mother Louisa as being born in Ireland.
The above Philadelphia Passenger list is the one I settled on for his identity....but I do not know if it is accurate. I didn't know if any passenger records existed in the UK as to when they left for the US
When looking at the records, if I recall, there were so many names John Currie or Curry. I was hoping that I could find a place of birth, like you asked. It's so maddening, ha ha. I have been trying for 2 1/2 years to figure out which person is the right one.
I appreciate your help, I truly do.
