  • Notes 
    • DNA testing may support Jane is indeed a Currey and the daughter of Ezekiel. More to come on this.

      A number of Jane's grandchildren have Curry as a middle name.
      Ezekiel's son Grandison Curry Wood
      John's daughter Martitia Currie Wood
      Reuben married Jane Currey, a niece of his mother; also his son is named John C. Wood (probably Curry for middle name)
      David's son Milo C. Wood (probably Currey for middle name)
      Zebedee's son Laban Curry Wood
      Laban's daughter Jane Curry Wood
