Current Surname

The Current name is probably Scottish or Irish in origin. I am not aware of its linguistic origin or translation. The name has been a rather difficult line to trace. This is in part because of the fact that it is the same as a common word in the English language, which makes internet searching quite a challenge.

The earliest known Currents in our family line were in North Carolina in the late 1700s and any connection to earlier Currents is entirely speculation. In a branch of Current family that we may be related to, there is story that there were three Cannon brothers of Scotch-Irish origin who moved to Maryland together in the mid 1700s. It is not known if that story is true, but there were several different Current families in Maryland during this time period whom we may be related to.


1st Generation:

Hugh Current was born circa 1720s. He died after 1764, probably in Maryland.

We know hardly anything about this generation of Currents. They were living in Montgomery Co., Maryland at one point and in Frederick Co., Maryland in the 1760s. Hugh also apparently lived in St. George's County, Maryland at some point.
He married Ann before 1760.

They had at least the following children:

1Tabitha Current was born [probably baptized] on February 17, 1760 in Frederick Co., Maryland 7.
2John Current
3Lydia Current was baptized on November 23, 1764 in Frederick Co., Maryland 20.

2nd Generation:

John Current was baptized on August 2, 1762 in Frederick Co., Maryland 20. He died before October 15, 1829 in Iredell Co., North Carolina 2.

Father: Hugh Current
Mother: Ann

Warning: The possibility of Hugh and Ann Current being his parents is presented as an educated guess, and is not proven. The same general geographic location and time frame (Maryland c. 1760's) and the continued use of two relatively uncommon names (Hugh and Tabitha) makes this connection seem possible. Other than that, no other sources suggest a connection. A different possibility is that John may have been the son of a Martin and Matilda Current who were in Dorchester County, Maryland during the same time period (note that John named his daughter Matilda).

Some researchers have posited that John was the son of James and Margaret Current (of Maryland and later West Virginia), yet he was not.

John was apparently born and raised in Maryland. As a youth in the late 1770s or early 1780s John moved to central North Carolina. He was married to Susannah Remington in 1782 in the part of Rowan County that is now Iredell County. They apparently spent the remainder of their lives in what is now Iredell County, North Carolina. However, there is a baptismal record for a Mary Current, daughter of John and Susanna Current, baptized on November 14, 1787 in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Frederick Co., Maryland. Apparently this child was born on May 14, 1786. At this same location in 1787, a Sarah Current was married to William Worselick. (Could she have been John's sister or close relative?). Could John and Susannah traveled back to their hometown in Maryland to baptize their child? If Mary Current was their daughter, she had probably died prior to 1790. John died sometime before October 15, 1829, the date that his estate was inventoried. His wife Susannah appears to have died during the 1820s.

John was married to Susannah Remington on December 12, 1782 in Rowan (now Iredell) Co., North Carolina 1. She was born circa 1765. She probably died between 1820 and 1829 in Iredell Co., North Carolina.
If her husband came from Maryland, then Susannah may have been from there as well. Other than that, we have no clues to her origins. It is possible that she was a relative of Richard Remington, who married in 1784 in Iredell Co., North Carolina, and died there in 1791.
They had the following children:
1 Hugh Current was born circa 1783 in Rowan (now Iredell) Co., North Carolina. He died after 1840.
He married Sarah circa 1805 in Iredell Co., North Carolina. (She was born circa 1792 in North Carolina. She died after 1850.)
Hugh served in the War of 1812 out of North Carolina. He and his wife had no children. He probably died during the 1840's, but he may have been the Hugh Current in 1850 in Greene Co., Tennessee.
2 Unknown male Current was born circa 1785 in Rowan (now Iredell) Co., North Carolina. This child died between 1790 and 1800 in Iredell Co., North Carolina.
3 John Current was born circa 1787 in Rowan (now Iredell) Co., North Carolina 5. He died before December 12, 1865 in Iredell Co., North Carolina 3.
He married Sarah Litton circa 1812 in Iredell Co., North Carolina. (She was born circa June 1790 in North Carolina 6. She died on April 23, 1856 in Iredell Co., North Carolina 6.)
They had the following children:
Sarah Current (c. 1813-c. 1874)
md. Franklin Gatton
Elizabeth Current (c. 1816-aft. 1880)
Alford Current (1817-1896)

This daughter's name may have been either Sarah or Susannah.
5 Andrew Current
6 Tabitha Current was born circa 1795 in Iredell Co., North Carolina 5. She died after 1860 in Wilkes Co., North Carolina.
She married Warning Wallace circa 1812 in Iredell Co., North Carolina. (He was born circa 1790 in Wake Co., North Carolina 5. He died between 1850 and 1860 in Wilkes Co., North Carolina.)
They had the following children:

md. Ann Howard Grant
Solomon Lee Hayes (c. 1827-???)
md. Elizabeth Anderson
Arta Hayes (c. 1833-???)
Calvin Hayes (c. 1834-???)

3rd Generation:

Andrew Current was born circa 1793 in Iredell Co., North Carolina. He died between 1840 and 1850 in Iredell Co., North Carolina.

Father: John Current
Mother: Susannah Remington

Andrew apparently resided in Iredell County, North Carolina for his entire life. He married, before 1820, to Elizabeth Wallace Snead. Andrew was a farmer of some sort and apparently was never very wealthy. He participated in the sale of his father's estate in 1829 and purchased a bible, a howel, a chisel, a handsaw, a hand ax, a loom, 2 hats, a cotton pack, a bull, a colt, 68 bushels of corn, a stack of fodder, as well as $45.50 in property given to him by his father before his death.

Andrew died sometime during the 1840s and in 1850 his wife was listed as head of household. Nothing further is known of Andrew. He and his wife left no estate records in Iredell County, North Carolina. Most of their children appear to have moved away from Iredell County after 1850.

He married to Elizabeth Wallace, probably widow of an unknown Mr. Snead, before 1820 in Iredell Co., North Carolina. She was born circa 1796 in North Carolina 5. She died after 1850.

They had the following children:

1 Alpheus Current was born circa 1824 in Iredell Co., North Carolina 5. He died sometime between 1880 and 1900, probably in Kentucky or Tennessee.
Alpheus married Margaret H. Pool or Coleman before 1860 in South Carolina. (She was born circa 1827 in South Carolina 5. She died on September 15, 1905 28 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee. She is buried in the Liberty Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.)
They had the following children:
John Andrew Current (1860-1930)
md. Susan Elizabeth Current
Coleman W. Current (1863-1919)
md. Mary Jane Lisenbee
Alpheus was a farmer and apparently moved frequently. He has not been located in the 1850 census, and had probably already moved away from Iredell County. In 1860, he was living with his family in Spartanburg Co., South Carolina. In 1863, they were still in South Carolina. In 1870, they were in Jefferson Co., Tennessee. In 1880, they were in Christian Co., Kentucky. In 1900, Alpheus' widow was living with their son John in Montgomery County, Tennessee.
2 Sarah Current was born circa 1824 in Iredell Co., North Carolina 5. She died after 1850.
We can find no trace of Sarah after 1850. She probably died unmarried during the 1850s. If she did marry, she probably still died early and left no surviving descendants.
3 Martha "Patsy" Current was born in September 1827 in Iredell Co., North Carolina 5. She died after 1900 in Lincoln Co., North Carolina.
Martha married Christopher Sherrill on June 11, 1854 in Catawba Co., North Carolina 7. (He was born in July 1833 in North Carolina 5. He died after 1900.)
They had the following children:
Marcus A. Sherrill (c. 1855-???)
Sena Sherrill (1862-1884)
md. John Richard Queen
Sarah Naoma Sherrill (1866-1942)
md. Hiram Francis Espy Boyles
there were apparently three other children who died in infancy or childhood.

In 1860, they were living in Catawba Co., NC. In 1870, they were living near Ironton in Lincoln Co., NC, where they remained. Her husband was a farmer.

Note: there is no proof that Martha Current wife of Christopher Sherrill was the same as Martha Current, daughter of Andrew and Elizabeth; but the connection is likely.

4 Hugh Andrew Current
5 William Cranshaw (or Crenshaw) Current was born in January 1834 in Iredell Co., North Carolina 5. He died on December 30, 1908 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 8. He is buried in the Liberty Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.
He married Emma A. Brown circa 1865, possibly in Arkansas. (She was born on April 13, 1844 in North Carolina 8,28. She died on May 18, 1893 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 8,28. She is buried in the Liberty Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.)
They had the following children:
Caddie Enette Current (1866-1925)
md. John W. Lisenbee
Susan Elizabeth Current (1870-1948)
md. John Andrew Current [ABOVE]
Andrew Brown Current (1872-1941)
md. 1st. Tennessee Alice Robbins
md. 2nd. Minerva Tippett Walsa
William Waldo Current (1874-1897)
Alpheus Alexander Current (1877-1946)
Lela Current (1879-1916)
md. William C. Cooksey
Bessie Current (1883-1954)
md. James Taylor Smith
William has not been located in the 1860 census. He eventually moved out west to Arkansas. He and his family were in Drew Co., Arkansas in 1870, and then in Lincoln Co., Arkansas in 1880. In 1888 they settled near New Providence in Montgomery Co., Tennessee, not far from where his brother Hugh lived. William was a farmer.
6 Elizabeth Current was born circa 1838 in Iredell Co., North Carolina 5. She probably died in 1875 in North Carolina.
She married first Charles Richard Rowe in 1859 or 1860. He was born in 1818 and died on December 18, 1868 in Rowan Co., North Carolina.
They had the following children:
Sarah Rowe (1864-1911)
Alfred S. Rowe (1867-1956)
md. 1st. Roxanna Hatley
md. 2nd. Laura Annie Krimminger
She married second A. W. Maxwell on or after January 1, 1872 in Rowan Co., North Carolina.
Her second husband was probably Andrew Washington Maxwell who lived in Rowan, Mecklenburg and Cabarrus Counties, North Carolina. Elizabeth may have been the mother of Bessie Maxwell who was born in February 1875 in Mecklenburg County. If so, Elizabeth probably died during or soon after the birth. Andrew Maxwell remarried just five months later in July 1875.

Elizabeth was living at home with her mother in 1850 in Iredell County, North Carolina. In 1860, she was living with her newly-married husband in Iredell County. Sometime after this they moved to Rowan County, North Carolina, where her husband had been born and raised. It was while living there that Charles died in 1868. Elizabeth and her children have not been located in the 1870 census, but they were probably still living in Rowan County. She was married to her second husband in Rowan County in 1872. After this, they may have moved to nearby Mecklenburg County, where she probably died. He later moved to Cabarrus County, North Carolina. Andrew and his third wife apparently both died during the 1880s, leaving all of his children as orphans.


4th Generation:

Hugh Andrew Current was born on October 13, 1832 in Iredell County, North Carolina 9. He died on May 11, 1911 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 9,11. He is buried in the Sango Cemetery, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.
Father: Andrew Current
Mother: Elizabeth Wallace

Hugh's father died sometime during the 1840s and his mother probably died in the 1850s. Sometime between 1850 and 1857, Hugh moved by himself out west and settled in Clarksville, Tennessee. In 1859, he married Elizabeth Halliburton, the eldest daughter of a local plantation owner. After the marriage, they lived near her parents on a farm in rural Montgomery County, Tennessee (southeast of Clarksville and near what is now the community of Sango). Hugh worked as a farmer, but it seems that his primary skills were in woodworking. In 1860, his occupation was listed as carpenter. In about 1873, Hugh moved with his family to the city of Clarksville, where he opened a chair making business in the city center. He operated his chair making business until about 1882. Another source indicates that in his adulthood he also had a printing supply business in Clarksville 27. In 1884, Hugh opened a restaurant business in Clarksville with a Mrs. Hughes. At about that time, Hugh decided to turn his attention back to farming and moved with his family to Bell Station in nearby Christian County, Kentucky. In Kentucky, Hugh was primarily an orchardist - his fruit trees including Crab Apples and Pears. He also grew watermelons. In 1891, Hugh moved with his family back to Clarksville. Eventually, Hugh built a large three-story red brick home for his family at what is now the intersection of Current Street and Riverside Drive in Clarksville 27. Although they lived in Clarksville, Hugh continued to own farmland in rural Montgomery County and in Kentucky (in 1895 he owned 90 acres in Woodford, near Sango). In 1896, Hugh made plans to sell the remainder of his farmland, including 96 acres that he still owned in Kentucky. In the late 1890s, Hugh apparently also owned or operated a planning mill somewhere in the vicinity of Clarksville. In 1873, Hugh invented and received a patent for a wood-chopping machine that he had designed. For more information, see my blog post on Hugh's invention and life.

In 1875, Hugh's wife Elizabeth died from consumption, leaving him with five young children to care for. He married second to a widow named Margaret Peterson in 1876. After the death of Margaret in 1890, Hugh apparently traveled to nearby Cheatham County, Tennessee where he married a widow named Sallie Bell in 1892. The marriage was not successful and they apparently separated (or were possibly divorced) before 1900. Sometime in the 1890s, Hugh became a minister in the Universalist church. The fact that Hugh was involved with the Universalist church might have been odd since the denomination was relatively liberal in many of its positions (such as denying the existence of hell and supporting the ordination of female ministers). His membership might have put him at odds with his family: his wife Elizabeth had been a member of the Presbyterian church while his daughter Georgia was a Baptist in her adulthood. In 1900, he was lodging in a house in the city of Clarksville. He was still a minister as late as 1906, when he spoke at a Universalist convention in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Sometime before 1910, he moved in with his daughter Cordelia on her family's farm northwest of Clarksville. It was probably there that Hugh died in 1911.

Hugh married first to Elizabeth Grant Halliburton on March 31, 1859 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 11,12.

They had the following children:
1 Franklin Current was born circa March 1860 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 5. He died between 1860 and 1870 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee.

It is assumed that Franklin died prior to 1865 (when his sister Esther died) because Esther's was the first burial in the Sango Cemetery, apparently indicating that Franklin had died prior to this and was buried elsewhere.

2 Mary Elizabeth Current was born on April 3 22 or May 8 11, 1861 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee. She died on February 19, 1937 in Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee 11,22. She is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.
She always went by her middle name. On most records she is listed as Elizabeth or Lizzie. It was only on her death certificate that the full name Mary Elizabeth Current was used. She never married and worked as a clerk in a dry goods store during her adulthood.
3 David Halliburton Current was born on March 3, 1863 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 10. He died on July 16, 1915 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 10,13. He is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.
He married Blanche B. Hunt on May 30, 1891 in Davidson Co., Tennessee 7. (She was born on December 15, 1864 in Kentucky 10. She died on November 1, 1946 in Tullahoma, Coffee Co., Tennessee10. She is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.)
They had one unidentified child that died in infancy.
David was a clothing tailor. He and his wife lived in a rural part of Montgomery County that is now within Clarksville's city limits.

I am also distantly related to David's wife Blanche Hunt. She was the granddaughter of John J. Hunt, who can be found here. That would make Blanche the second cousin once removed of Louetha Jones, the wife of David's nephew Newell Brown.
4 Esther Frances Current was born on July 3, 1864 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 9. She died on July 16, 1865 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 9. She is buried in the Sango Cemetery, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.
Esther is said to have been the first burial in the Sango Cemetery. She apparently died while visiting her grandparents and was buried there, which necessitated the creation of a cemetery.
5 Ellen Edora (or Eudora) Current was born on December 11, 1865 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 11,21. She died on April 20, 1934 in Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee 11,21. She is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.
Ellen always went by "Dora", a shortened version of her middle name. She never married and spent her adulthood in Clarksville, where she worked as a saleslady.
6 Georgia Lee Current
7 Cordelia Ann Current was born on January 15, 1869 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 11,23. She died on July 19, 1938 in Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee 11,23. She was buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.
Cordelia married Jefferson Crittendon Caroland on February 17, 1892 in Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee 11. (He was born on February 2, 1861 in Woodlawn, Montgomery Co., Tennessee 11. He died on April 18, 1931 in Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee 11. He is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.)
They had the following children:
Kathleen Caroland (1893-1920)
md. Richard Thurman Martin
Clay Redman Caroland (1895-1966)
md. Ann Loving Morrison
Jefferson Crittendon Caroland (1906-???)
md. ??? Rogers
Russell Caroland (1906-1963)
md. Ann Jones
She was called "Cordie" or "Cordia". She and her family lived on a farm northwest of Clarksville near the community of Ringgold and what is now Fort Campbell.
8 Francis Current was born on June 17, 1870 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 9. She died on January 1, 1878 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 9. She is buried in the Sango Cemetery, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.
She was called "Fannie."

Hugh married second to Margaret A. Long, widow of Isaac Peterson, on February 10, 1876 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 25. She was born on March 8, 1832 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 25 and died on September 27 25 or 28 26, 1890 in Wickliffe, Ballard Co., Kentucky. She is buried in the Current-Cook-Peterson Cemetery (also called Long Cemetery), Montgomery Co., Tennessee.

They had no children.

Hugh married third to Sarah "Sallie" E. Sanders, widow of George W. Bell, on April 1, 1892 in Cheatham Co., Tennessee 24. She was born in May 1845 in Tennessee 5 and died after 1910, probably in Cheatham Co., Tennessee.

They had no children. It appears that Hugh and Sallie were estranged and separated (and perhaps divorced) sometime beteen 1892 and 1900. In the 1900 census, he was living in Clarksville and his marital status was widowed. In that same year, she was living with her siblings in Cheatham County, enumerated as Sallie Current, with her marital status as married. Then in the 1910 census, she was enumerated as Sallie Bell and widowed (she apparently reverted to her first husband's last name).


5th Generation:

Georgia Lee Current was born in May 1867* in Montgomery County, Tennessee. She died on April 8, 1910 in Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee 15,16. She is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.

Father: Hugh Andrew Current
Mother: Elizabeth Grant Halliburton

* Unfortunately, we do not know Georgia's date of birth. The only two known sources which reveal birth information for Georgia are the 1900 census (May 1868) and her tombstone (1867). Her death certificate does not list a date of birth, but records that she was 42 years old at the time of her death (which would indicate she was born between April 1867 and April 1868). The 1870 census suggests she was born between July 1865 and July 1866 and the 1880 census suggests she was born between June 1867 and June 1868. Based on these sources, my guess is that she was born in May 1867 (although possibly in May 1866 or May 1868; it is not likely though that she was born in 1866, her sister Dora was born just 6 months earlier in December 1865).

Georgia spent her earliest years on the family's farm in rural Montgomery County, Tennessee near the Sango community and the home of her grandparents, George and Mary Halliburton. Then, in about 1873, she moved with her family to the nearby city of Clarksville, Tennessee, where her father operated a chair making business. It was there that her mother died of consumption in 1875. Her father remarried a year later to Margaret Peterson, who continued to raise Georgia and her siblings. In about 1883, Georgia moved with her family to a farm in nearby Christian County, Kentucky (at Bell Station, near what is now Fort Campbell). While living in Kentucky, Georgia and her siblings made frequent trips back to their hometown of Clarksville to visit friends and relatives. In Kentucky, Georgia was a member of the Douglas Dramatic Club, which put on plays. In 1891, Georgia moved with her family back to Clarksville. In Clarksville, she lived with her family in their home overlooking the Cumberland River (at what is now Riverside Drive and Current Street).

While living there, she met and became engaged to C.C. Brown, an aspiring young farmer and businessman. After their marriage in 1894, she lived with him on a farm southeast of Clarksville, Tennessee. In 1901, Georgia and her family moved to Duarte, California (near Los Angeles), for the benefit of C.C.'s health, but they did not like it there. In 1902 they returned to Montgomery Co., Tennessee, and purchased an elegant home from B.F. McKeage. Here, Georgia and C.C. spent the remainder of their lives. Although in their time it was outside of Clarksville it is today within the city's limits.

Georgia "possessed a strong mental capacity and was in social life held in high esteem. Her life as wife and mother was worthy of emulation, being always loving and forbearing" 16. In her adulthood, Georgia was a member of the Baptist church 16. Sadly, Georgia developed pneumonia and died one week later from the disease at her home. She was 42 years old at the time of her death.

Georgia married to Christopher Columbus Brown on December 20, 1894 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 18.
