BRADSHAW. The family of James Bradshaw (actually is Jonas Bradshaw) needs to include a daughter Nancy M born abt 1839 IL. Debbi Geer.

CUNY – CURRY. An error in transcription in the 1850 census. On pg 88, district 8-11, household 71 71 the family of CUNY should be CURRY. Clelland W. Curry appears in the Illinois marriage record marrying Eliza Springale in Jersey Co., 8 July 1841. He is listed as the 1855 Jersey co. census as C. W. Curry in Jersey North township. He is listed in 1860 Jersey Co. index as W. C. Curry again. His father was James C. Curry, mother Mary Mollie Mann, both from Mercer Co. KY but moved to Jersey Co. or Greene Co in 1830s. Clelland’s brothers and sisters were in the area as well and are documented in the census and marriagerecords. Finally Clelland Curry is mentioned in the obit for Elizabeth CurryFitzgerald (on the Jersey Co. GenWeb site) as her brother. Correction from Martin Weaver.
