Hi Janet The Currier/Carrier line does go back a long way and it appears there are more then one branch. My Mother's side of the family was the Cross/Currier line which seems to be the main Curriers, on my Father's side were the Oregon Currier's which according to Philip there is no known connection unless it is way back in England. Philip Authored ten books I would love to get the set but they are $600.00 dollars. my Father and a Half-Brother are in Vol. 6, I had sent Philip the data on the rest of my father's family just this passed fall and had not heard from him, so had wondered about his health.
