Thanks for that overlay.

I think it concurs with this 1952 aerial:

Curry - 1952.jpg

The circle is where I believe the 'town center' of Curry was, the horizontal row of dots represent the SVRy roadbed (five years after track removal), the dots going South are lines in the vegetation that are either railroad roadbed or roads, there were both here so I am not sure which is which...

When I visited in September the lake was REALLY low but I didn't have time to do any exploring, I plan on arriving on Thursday before Safety Weekend in May and may have a chance to do some exploring, though I'm sure the lake is FULL now!
