Betsy, thank you so much for your interesting article. My brother and his wife visted that old cemetery when they went to Curry's Chapel a year ago trying to find Isaiah and Catherine. But, like you mention, the stones have disintegrated and are illegible. Isaiah died in 1833 so it would have been a very old stone. We don't know when Catherine died. Isaiah was my ggg-grandfather. In The Pioneer it mentions William as "Uncle Billy". We have been trying to find documentation on Isaiah's parents, Samuel Curry and Margaret Irwin but it was so long ago, have not found anything but Samuel's will even when we went to Staunton. Did find on the internet an article about Isaiah and Catherine's sale of their land in Augusta County, wish we would have had the info when we were in Staunton, we would have been able to locate where they lived and where Samuel lived as he left the land to the 3 sons. I also heard from a gentleman in Michigan who descends from William who had the mill but he didn't know where he was buried. Thanks again. I will forward your message on to my brother in Florida. Leola Curry Meraz
