      REF: Brandon's Family, Ancestry.com by Brandon Currey
      Ezekiel was at Alamance: He was listed as Ezekiel Cure on the regulator list. His brother John was listed as John Curey on the list. Others on the list include most of the Nashville founders such as James Robertson and a Cartwright. Unable to find any records on Elizabeth’s family but Brownlees were quite numerous in the Ulster community in Pennsylvania and in Northern Ireland registers and in Scotland, especially at Torfoot, Scotland. Undoubtedly Robert Brownlee Currey was named after her father and the Brownlee name was used by many other generations.
      Ezekiel fought at the battle of Guilford and was wounded, according to his son.
      Moved again to Middle Tennessee along with other members of his family
      Died and was buried at Nolensville in Williamson County
