Birth: 1709, Scotland
Death: Oct. 26, 1803


William Currie was born and educated in Glasgow, Scotland.

He immigrated to America and settled in New Castle, in Delaware. He became acquainted with the Rev. Mr. Ross, a clergyman of the Episcopal Church, and under whose influence he was led to examine the doctrines and discipline of the Church of Scotland, and was accordingly recommended by the Rev. Mr. Ross to the Royal Society of England, whither he proceeded for ordination. After his return he became rector of Perkiomen, Radnor, and St. Peter's Churches in Pennsylvania.

On November 30, 1738, he married Rev. Ross' eldest daughter, Margaret. To this union there were five sons and one daughter: John, James, William, Richard, Alexander Ross, and Elizabeth.

Mr. Currie continued to be the rector of the above churches until independence was declared and then from 17771785 he preached upon request.

After the death of his first wife in 1771, he married second wife, Lucy Ann Jones, formerly a Miss Godfrey, at this time the widow of David Jones. He resided on a farm in Tredyffrin, Pennsylvania, situated a short distance from Washington's encampment at Valley Forge. After the loss of his second wife, he sold the farm and went to live with his granddaughter.

He departed this life at ninety-four years of age.
