4th message - Betsy I sent your info to my brother, Dr. Keith L. Curry and here is his reply. "Can you forward again the first Betsy Arndt email you sent me yesterday?
I inadvertently deleted it. I like to keep a record. I knew the William she mentioned was probably not one of the brothers. There was a group of Curry's that arrived in Staunton around 1840, and "Uncle Billy" was one of them. We tramped through the cemetery she described on the Brandywine. It is in very bad condition. Many graves are unmarked, some stones unreadable. It has not been cared for in decades. Our "guide" had visited it as a youth (he is in his late 50's or early 60's), but had a great deal of difficulty finding it. After walking back through a
cornfield for a mile, we tramped through brush and undergrowth for half an hour. He had scouted ahead for 40 minutes while we waited for him to come back. There was a large flat stone that was probably part of the mill, and some evidence of a community there at one time. While we were in Greenfield we spoke with an author and her husband who were updating her book on cemeteries in the County. I will try to get in touch and get a copy of it. That cemetery is in her book."
