Hi Toni long time since I heard from you. Yes that is right, also when my Dad visited Islay over 25 years ago, someone told him that his branch of the Curries got caught in a Church, escaped and changed their name to Currie. How much truth I do not know.
Alexander Currie and his wife Mary Buie from Jura 2 oldest children named John born about 1820 and Alexander about1823. One of them as a small child fell into the fire and passed away. The other died in a snowstorm with his cousin. Would anyone have any idea of that?
Have a great day

Hello all, I hope you don't mind if I butt into this conversation. I found my record of the marriage between Donald Currie and Katherine Sinclair, Feb.1786. This is what I have for their family: 1. daughter Catherine died 15 March, 1874, age 90, poor house. If this is correct, she was probably their first-born around 1784. 2. Mary, Jan 3, 1787 at Sgarabus 3. Iver, Dec. 18, 1791. 4. Ann, Sept. 1796 at Daill; Alexander, Sept. 2,1798, Lurabus. Emigrated to Egremont twp, Grey Co.
