Biographical history

George Currier (1828-1867) was the son of Maria Bartlett and David Currier, who were residents of Gagetown, New Brunswick. In 1850 George began to study medicine with a Dr. Bayard in Saint John, New Brunswick, later attending the Philadelphia School of Medicine in Pennsylvania. While in the United States, he corresponded with family and friends in New Brunswick, and after his first year of study, returned home for the summer, taking frequent trips down river to Saint John by steamer.

Following graduation, he returned to New Brunswick, and established his practice in Grand Falls. His wife, Ellen Day Costigan Currier, died in 1910. They had five children, Ambrose David, George Bertram, Colin Costigan, Ida Marie Lousia, and Helen Maud.
