1860 Census. Rushville P.O., Buena Vista Twp, Schuyler Co IL Hh 889
Amanda divorced James Curry and I don't know what happened to the two little boys, but by November of 1866, Rachel had married Leroy Black and the Curry children do not appear with her in 1870 - apparently they died as the 1900 census stated she had nine children and only two were then living. It would appear that the oldest son, Ulysses Black, was perhaps a son of an earlier marriage of Leroy's and not Rachel's child. Actually descendants claim that Ulysses was a Curry, born 16 Mar 1864.
