    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.

    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

    Looking For Assistance In Identifying my great great grandfather John W(?) Currie (Curry) born in Scotland
