After reading through your explanation, I was not sure who you needed to have looked up. I looked up James, Frederick and Florence but found nothing in the burial records. I did find the following:
CURRY, FRED A PETERS, ANNA S 01/20/1884 00C/0161 00008590 SCHUYLER
WINANS, FRANK G CURRY, FLORENCE A 02/03/1885 C /222 900 BROWN
CURRY, JAMES A BURNS, BETTY 11/29/1866 C /48 606 BROWN
AVERY, PHILANDER CURRY, ALICE S 12/25/1880 00C/0136 00008101 SCHUYLER
COFFMAN, AMOS A CURRY, MARY J 03/04/1885 C /223 913 BROWN
You might want to check Schuyler County for Frederick. He May have married twice.
It appears that they all moved out of the County before their deaths except their mother, Mary. The Benjamin Franklin Robinson listed in the burial index has a wife by another name buried near him. Although he could have married twice, he was born in 1803, which would make him older than Mary's father.
I hope this helps a little.
