Yes but I would really like to find out who the parents of Margaret Curry were. Have you any idea?
I do not know if this will help your search:
United States, Atlantic Ports Passenger Lists, 1820-1873 and 1893-1959
Name: Margaret Curry
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1835
Arrival Date: Aprth Quarter 1848
Port of Arrival: Key West, Florida
On the same list are other Curry(s) but it does not give relationships.
William 22 and Richard 17 both listed as mariners
Thanks so much. There is another Margaret Curry that came from the Bahamas and so that must be the one that was still here in 1920. My Margaret passed away in 1904 or that is what I was told.
