41. CURRY, Mary [c1801 KY - 1851 Union Co., KY].  One child: Abishalom.  She married second to Samuel BROWN.

44. ARTERBERRY, Moses [c1780-84 Chester Co., SC - aft 1840 Jackson Co., TN census] was suggested by other researchers as the father of (#22) Bennett ARTERBERRY, but my research seems to indicate that Moses might be Bennett's grandfather.  Moses may have been married twice, wives' names unknown (some researchers said his wife was Mary ALEXANDER).  He was the son of Nathan ATTERBURY and Patsy / Patty ______, and grandson of William ATTERBURY and Sarah ______.  Further research and proof on the relationship between Bennett and Moses is needed before adding these generations to the chart.
