The stories for this family say that 3 brothers travelled from North Ireland to the U.S.A. around 1751 and landed on the Eastern shore of Maryland. One of the brothers died. One headed back to their native land and the third, James Current, traded a grey horse for 1300 acres of land. However, prior to 1781 there were no allotments of land to settlers. Before that date, settlers simply cleared a small space, erected a cabin and claimed 400 acres of land around their cabin. Therefore, the statement regarding trading the horse for land is questionable.
