Note: An Alexander Curry m. an Elizabeth Curry in Augusta Co. VA 9 Oct 1795; I haven't put in that marriage because of obvious problems with the names. (NOTE: This Alexander Curry was apparently a son of Robert Curry, brother of William Curry.

I'm a descendant of Jane "Jenny" Curry and Mordecai Bean.

Hope this helps! Jim
