Re: Abram Currier

In Reply to: Abram Currier by Peter Lagasse of 4937

in the 1850 census of Aroostook Co., Maine at:
http://www.upperstjohn.com/1850/TGR2.htm#108b
is the family:

Currier Ann 53 F New Brunswick
Currier Enoch 23 M Farmer 500 New Brunswick
Currier John F. 28 M Laborer New Brunswick
Currier Jane 25 F New Brunswick
Currier David L. 22 M Laborer New Brunswick
Currier Abram 20 M Laborer New Brunswick
Currier Adalade 18 F Maine
Currier Bethsheba 16 F Maine
Currier Moses A. 13 M Maine

In Maysville, Aroostook Co., ME in 1880 Moses A. Currier (b. ME ca. 1842) gave his father as b. NB and mother as b. Scotland.
I would suspect a connection to the family of Enoch (MAY1781-1874) and Hannah (Taylor) Currier, also from York Co., NB to Littleton, Aroostook Co., ME, but these do not appear to be their children. A possible father is Henry Currier mentioned by Edward Wiggins & George H. Collins ('History of Aroostook County', Vol. 1, p. 85) as an early settler from NB. I would think it likely that Ann's husband was a son or grandson of Issachar and Rebecca (Morrill) Currier who were certainly in Kingsclear Parish by 1799. The New Brunswick Genealogical Society's web site, "First Families" has:

CURRIER: Issachar Currier b. 30 Sep 1743 at Amesbury, MA, d. 1807, s/o Enoch
