The Judaculla Rock – Curry Family Connection

The Judaculla Rock – Curry Family Connection


If your last name is Curry and you know its etymology then you are light years ahead of most Judaculla videos and articles!

We really can’t explain it at this time, but the region around the location of the Judaculla Rock in Western North Carolina had the name of a province on the northern tip of Ireland and southwestern tip of Scotland called Curreigh, Curry or Corra.  It is where the Scottish People evolved centuries later. The name of Currahee Mountain in Stevens County, GA has the same origin.   We also can’t explain why the petroglyphs in Georgia’s Etowah Valley are identical to those in southwestern Ireland and the Pictish areas of Scotland.  As they say, though, a picture speaks a thousand words.

For in depth analysis of the Judaculla Rock by someone, who knows the real meaning of Judaculla and of the symbols on the Judaculla Rock go to:

Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history. Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.



    I composited some art using the Judaculla rock a few years ago before some very weird things happened.. if you like have a look.. My theory may be completely farsical but if anyone can give a opinion you might.. I’m not trying to test the patience of anyone or anything but I do admit I at times go past my own understanding when I do art on the computer..

The Information World is changing!

People of One Fire needs your help to evolve with it.

We are now celebrating the 11th year of the People of One Fire. In that time, we have seen a radical change in the way people receive information. The magazine industry has almost died. Printed newspapers are on life support. Ezines, such as POOF, replaced printed books as the primary means to present new knowledge. Now the media is shifting to videos, animated films of ancient towns, Youtube and three dimensional holograph images.

During the past six years, a privately owned business has generously subsidized my research as I virtually traveled along the coast lines and rivers of the Southeast. That will end in December 2017. I desperately need to find a means to keep our research self-supporting with advertising from a broader range of viewers. Creation of animated architectural history films for POOF and a People of One Fire Youtube Channel appears to be the way. To do this I will need to acquire state-of-art software and video hardware, which I can not afford with my very limited income. Several of you know personally that I live a very modest lifestyle. If you can help with this endeavor, it will be greatly appreciated.

Support Us!

Richard Thornton . . . the truth is out there somewhere!
