Richard Currey

Birth: Nov. 4, 1709
Westchester County
New York, USA
Death: Mar. 20, 1806
Cortlandt
Westchester County
New York, USA

Parents: Richard & Elizabeth (Stivers) Currey.
Husband of Elizabeth Jones.

Just an FYI, the info I found on line is that he and his oldest daughter Martha were born in Cork or York, Ireland. In several trees his wife is referred to as Elizabeth or Martha Stivers. Others say Elizabeth Jones.
Your list of kids does not show dau Martha (I show b 1734 but others show 1739 and 1741) married Andrew Sherwood, UEL - she is mentioned in Richard's will along with her son Richard Sherwood.
I am descended from Andrew and Martha.

Please add a little bio to Richard to the effect that he and Elizabeth also had a daughter Martha who married Andrew Sherwood. This is noted in his will.
Andrew and Martha were my 5 great grandparents.
As an aside it is curious how many females of this family died in 1778 including my Martha. Makes me wonder if there was a fire?
