    Notes 
    • Was a prisoner in the Civil War until the end of the War. Moved to Barbour Co. after Civil War. [Price, p.493]
      Price says this John Curry married Virginia Wanless, but there is no marriage record for them in Pocahontas Co. She (dau. of Ralph and Ann Poage Wanless) was 22 in the 1860 census, with her parents, and gone by 1870. There is this Poca Co marriage bond (the only one for John Curry) up to 1871:

      Sept. 8, 1854, John Curry and Virginia Cunningham married at the residence of Zadoc Cunningham on the Greenbrier River by James E.Moore. Groom: age 34 on 18 Jul last, farmer, born Poco. Co., son of Isaiah & Abigail Curry. Bride: age 18, on 8 Mar last, born Poco. Co. daughter of Zadoc and Christiana Cunningham. Zadoc (x) Cunningham consents for daughter.

      John & Virginia Curry then appear in the 1860 Poca Co census next to Zadoc Cunningham. This is near Wm Wanless, but not Ralph (Virginia's father).

      1850: Age 30, with parents, next to Wm Wanless.
      1870: Not in Poca Co census.

      1867: Sold to James Wanless, 1 tract part Knox Survey. [Poca. Co. Grantee Index]
      1873: Sold to James Wanless, 120 acres Curry Place on Back Alleghany Mtn. [Grantee Index]
