    Notes 
    • I am fairly confident that this James Robert Curry died in 1918. The death certificate for the 1918 James Robert Curry indicates his father was Jack Curry and his mother was Matilda Wills, but the certificate shows both parents were born in Ohio. The information was provided by Amanda Holder. In the 1900 US Census, James R. Curry is listed as a "boarder" and in 1910 as "brother-in-law" in the household of John W. and Amanda/Mandy Holder. John and Mandy are only about 10 years younger than James. I cannot find any records that link Amanda as a sister to James (James' mother would have been in her early 50s) nor can I find any records that link John W. to James' sister Betsy (Frances was never married). So, I assume that Amanda was mistaken about James' parents' places of birth, and makes me wonder about the accuracy of Wills being James' mother's maiden name. But, it's a place to start more searching.
