CORRECTIONS AND ADDITIONS.
Sarah Morton, no doubt the daughter of the Signer, for whom I could not account, married Dec. n, 1773, William Grantum, perhaps of the Ridley family of that name: see p. 145. For all these marriages, see 2 Pa. Archives, 2 series. These dates are those of the licenses not of the marriages. This volume of the Archives is just out, April 7, 1877, which accounts for these additions to the family sketches.
Doctor Currie, a well-known and highly esteemed physician, who rendered most efficient service during an epidemic of yellow fever, was the eldest son of Rev. Dr. William Currie, Missionary of the Radnor Parish, which included Old St. David's, Radnor, St. Peter's, Great Valley, and St. James, Perkiomen.
