FatherJoshua Curtis Sr.3 b. c 1740, d. bt 1811 - 1820
MotherMary (Sarah) Clark3,4 b. bt 1735 - 1745, d. bt 1791 - 1800
Last Edited7 Oct 2009
BirthSamuel Curtis was born in 1757 at South Carolina; alternate date based on his reported age of age 93 in the 1850 census, with consistent responses in both 1830 and 1840.5 
Birth*He was born in 1767; date based on 1820 census and pre-1800 tax lists where Samuel is first subject to poll tax in 1788. Furthermore, the 1757 date strongly suggests that his mother was a marriage prior to the Mary Clark marriage, given the estimated dates of birth of his presumed siblings.6,7 
Tax List*He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1788 at Capt. Farguson's District, Wilkes, North Carolina; 1 poll, no land; Samuel's appearance on the tax roll for the first time coincided with his marriage to Susannah; however, his absence prior to 1788 provides the best support for the contention that he was born in 1767, rather than 1757, as reported in the 1850 census. Samuel's age in the 1810 census is consistent with the later date of birth; however, his age in the 1830 and 1840 censuses is consistent with the earlier date of birth; hence no clear conclusion can be reached. Furthermore, if his place of birth in the 1850 census was reported correctly as South Carolina; one has to re-think Joshua's appearance in the 1761 and 1768 Rowan County tax lists.8

The execution of the within will was duly proven in open court by Jas [James] Calloway one of the subscribing witnesses thereto and ordered to be recorded and the executioner H. Curtice was duly sworn. This will was transcribed by Jerry L. Curtis on October 21, 1986. Words that were unclear are followed by a ?. Abbreviations are written as transcribed with the best guess following in brackets. The term "jurat" is approximately "one sworn before". The name Curtice was spelled phonetically since Mr. Curtis was illiterate. Also the will was not read carefully by the writer because the writer was so accustomed to writing deceased after Wm Curtis that he wrote it after Alfred Curtice.
