760. Lillard Gorby6 Curry (Henry Albon5 Gorby, Thomas4, Job3, Thomas2, Samuel1) was born in Pierce, Green Co, KY. February 9, 1900. Lillard died August 15, 1977 in Greensburg, KY., at 77 years of age.

He married Elizabeth Robertson March 31, 1930. Elizabeth was born in Rockport, Ohio Co, KY. December 6, 1906. Ref: RCM1-11.27.98 - Last name incorrectly listed as 'Patterson' in the 1936 Gorby book. (1936) Lillard Gorby Curry managed his father's farm and traded in stock, graduated from Bowling Green, KY, State Normal in June, 1930. He is now Superintendent of schools at Glasgow Junction, KY, their present address having been there since 1930.

When a grown young man, almost a six-footer, Lillard decided he wanted an education. He had only attended a small country school, so he went to Bowling Green, KY, and entered the eighth grade, which took more courage than most boys at that age and stature possess. He completed the eighth grade and high school, and in 1930 won his Bachelor's degree at the State Normal there. Such a step as this means a determination that will lead to success in his chosen work.
