Curry Family of Loudoun County, Virginia

Curry Family of Loudoun County, Virginia

Classification: Query
I am trying to find information on John Robert Curry. Who did he marry? All I have is Ann. John was born 1837 and died 1890 in Loudoun County, Virginia. His wife Ann was born 1842 and died 1895 in Loudoun County, Virginia.

They also had (3) children Minnie B.1869, Annie b. 1870, and John b. 1879, which I can't find out what happened to them.

Any help will be appreciated.
