History Among Us reviewer Ronald Curry|
2007-09-10 - Greensburg, KY - Photo From Curry family album.
Ronald Curry, who wrote the wonderful review of Lanny Tucker's new book, History Among Us, is a financial services advisor in Greensburg, KY, specializing in retirement plans, college savings plans, and general investing.
Though he shares a name in common with one of Adair County's largest families, he says, he's not sure of any kinship with the Currys of Adair County.
"I researched my family tree 25-30 years ago, but never found any ties to Columbia. I can go back to my great great great great grandfather, Bartholomew Curry who was a Green County constable in the early 1800's. He came here from Pennsylvania County, Virginia in 1804," he wrote. "But that doesn't mean I'm not related to Adair County Currys. I would bet we are related."
He is related by twinship-in-law to Charles Grimsley, Grimsley's Jewelry owner and senior member of the Columbia City Council.
"Even though I have no Curry connections in Adair County, my wife is from Adair County.She is Charlotte Grimsley, the daughter of Myrtle and the late Ples Grimsley,which makes me Charles Grimsley's brother-in-law. I married his twinsister," he wrote. "I don't think I have met anyone from Adair County who doesn't knowCharles!"Possibly someone well versed in Curry genealogy can enlighten us on that aspect of the writer's background. -CM
