Jane Curry VA 1773 Married in Bourbon Cty. KY 1793
Jane was my ancestress, apparently one of a slew of related Curry's who likely were in what is now Kentucky at the time of her birth but was then Virginia.
Jane is attested by the marriage record at Bourbon County - her husband's name was initially mistranscribed to connect her to Josiah instead of Joshua McDowell.Joshua's birth was apparently before 1774 based on when he was taxed in Kentucky, I can't find his parents either, for that matter.
Jane appears regularly in the census records, but only in 1850 by name, prior to that a woman of her age appears in the household of her husband and sons.
I cannot find a Jane of the appropriate age in anyone else's genealogies or in any records available online.If anyone researching the Curry families can make a suggestion I would really appreciate some help.
I have pretty much posted everything I know about Jane here.As a result of the mis-transcribed marriage record she appears in a lot of McDowell family trees associated with Josiah (whose actual wife's name never appears) but she is far too young to be mother to Josiah's kids, not to mention his actual wife has died before him and is mentioned in his 1834 will while Jane is still kicking much, much later.
Maybe someone with a stronger tie to the Curry's will have a thread here...Thanks for your time!
