    Notes 
    • Robert came from what is know Lodi,Seneca County, New York in 1799 to the town of Hector where he had lived for five years. He settled on lot No.2.. "He drove his cattle from there on the Indian trail, and sent his up in a scow." He married Abigail Brown, whose sister, Sophia, married Robert's brother James. The following is taken from a Curry History written by James L. Curry, a grandson of James and Sophia Curry, in 1905. Abigail and Sophia were born in New Jersey and the daughters of William Brown, a scotchman, who it is stated was an officer in the Revolutionary War, belonging to Lee's Legion, and was killed in Battle. Abigail and Sophia's mother(madian Hulette?), was a full blooded French woman and sister(Andrew's note: "sister" not possibly, Dick Hunnewell was not French and was also born in the mid 1600's-to old to be a sister, also if she is a sister, woudnt her name be Hunnewell, not Hullette?) to the celebrated trapper, hunter, and Indian fighter, known as Dick Hunnewell. The Indians burned his house, killed his wife and two children, and took him prisoner and got everything ready to burn him at the stake. Inside the circle he seized the chief and hurled him into the fire and then in the confusion that followed, made his escape. From that time on, he hunted Indians, and marks on his rifle stock numbered twenty-seven that he had killed.
