Robert Brownlee Currey was the older brother of my GGGF, John S. Currey. Their mother, Elizabeth Brownlee, came from a prominent family.
One of the Curreys, it may have been Robert Brownlee Currey, laid out the original plat for the city of Nashville.
John S. Currey married Harriet Lannom and was in Mechanicsville in the 1850 census. Harriet and their children appear in the 1860 census in Wilson county, leaving the probability that John had died by 1860.
