Hi! Are you also direct descendants of Samuel Jackson Curry and Synthia Ann Orr? As far as ties to Fannin Co., it is said that Samuel died in Fannin Co, but that's about all the information I have in regards to Fannin Co. He and Synthia were in Adair Co. on the 1900 census, but then I'm guessing they moved to TX with one of their children shortly after since Samuel died in 1906 in TX. Synthia died between 1906-1910 based on the fact I can't locate her on a census, but that could change. I am not sure where Synthia died or is buried. I also have other Curry / Fannin Co connections through Matilda Alzira (Curry) Sinclair and Matilda Josephine and Richard Nicholas Burton from another line if any those names are familiar. Here is the information for the S.J. line:

Samuel Jackson Curry b. 1837 to William Hiram Curry and Malinda Pendleton. Married Synthia Ann Orr August 31, 1854 in Adair Co., Ky. Samuel died July 8, 1906 in Fannin Co., TX. Synthia was born July 1835 in KY to Alexander Orr and Burella Ann Judd. She died after 1906.

Children of Samuel and Synthia include Arthur R. Curry (1854), Mary L. Curry (1856), Joshua Curry (1860), Elizabeth Curry (September 20, 1862 -1915), Lou M. Curry (1866), James Riley Curry (1868), M. F. Curry (1871), William Benjamin Curry (1871), Eliza L. Curry (1873), Josephine Curry (Dec 1874), S. Leslie Curry (1875), and Ed. Hays Curry (1876).
