Martha Allred1

F, b. circa 1770, d. between 1805 and 1810
Last Edited6 Feb 2007
Birth*Martha Allred was born circa 1770. 
Married Name As of circa 1787,her married name was Curtis. 
Marriage*She married John Curtis, son of Samuel Curtis Jr. and Mrs. Samuel Curtis, circa 1787 at Randolph, North Carolina; no marriage record; Martha Allred (Aldred) is a guess, based on the 1797 court record; John's estate record names "Judy, relic of John," so he may have had two wives, but the Judy in the estate records is definitely a different woman than Samuel's daughter Judy, Elaine.2 
(Witness) CensusMartha Allred appeared on the census of 1790 Sandy Creek Area, Randolph, North Carolina, in the household of John Curtis; page 285, 1 male over 16, 3 females, 1 other free person; listed next to Samuel.3 
NoteB* The belief that John's first wife was Martha Allred comes solely from the following court record: Jane Allred, wife of James Allred, Meriam Allred, daughter of John Allred, and Martha Curtis, wife of John Curtis, were charged with assaulting Mary Crabtree, wife of James Crabtree, on 17 September 1797. Mary Crabtree was sitting in a pew in the Sandy Creek Meetinghouse and the others were sitting behind. They kicked her and then would talk and laugh at her. The husbands and father posted bond for their respective appearances in court. I have surmised that the three girls were related. The case probably was dropped; I have found no information regarding the ruling of the court.2 
Death*Martha Allred died between 1805 and 1810 at Randolph, North Carolina; No evidence of her death, but John is believed to have had two wives.

NoteB* John had two daughters in the 1790 census, but only one over age 10 in 1800, assumed to be Polly; George Black's wife Nancy was born 1781-1790 per the 1830 census, so she should be in the 1800 household but is not listed as such.

Marriage*Nancy Curtis married George Black, son of George Black, on 9 October 1816 at Randolph, North Carolina.4

Death*Nancy Curtis died between 1831 and 1840 at Randolph, North Carolina; George appears to be widowed in 1840; Richland Lutheran is the logical burial place, but there is no record for either of them.6

Birth*Elizabeth Curtis was born circa 1794 at Randolph, North Carolina; It appears that Elizabeth Curtis, who married John A. Burgess in 1815, is the same female who appears in John's household in the 1800 census, age 0-9, 1810, age 16-25. There is a possibility that she is the same person as the Betsey Curtice, who was cited in February 1810 Randolph County court, who I have listed as a daughter of Samuel, but I find no evidence of such a child in the Burgess family records.3 
(Witness) CensusShe appeared on the census of 1800 Hillsboro District, Randolph, North Carolina, in the household of John Curtis; page 308, 3 males and 2 females under 10, 1 female 10-15, 1 male and 1 female 26-44; one of the two females in the 1790 census is unaccounted for, but that does not mean she necessarily died.1 
Married Name As of 4 January 1816,her married name was Burgess.2 
Marriage*Elizabeth Curtis married John A. Burgess on 4 January 1816 at Randolph, North Carolina; bondsman, Peter Amick; witness, Jacob Brower.2 
NoteB* According to the 1830 census, they had 2 sons born 1816-1820, 2 daughters born 1820-1825, and 1 daughter born 1826-1829.4

Harrison Curtis1

MotherMartha Allred1 b. c 1770, d. bt 1805 - 1810
Last Edited12 Mar 2008
Birth*Harrison Curtis was born circa 1801 at Randolph, North Carolina; Census data place his date of birth as 1801-1810; if he was 21 when he testified in court in 1825, the date would be 1804. Harrison also might be the son of Fanny and Archibald Harrison; Fanny was paid by the county poor warden for caring for Harrison at the time of his death, which strikes me as an indication he was not her son.1 
NoteB* Harrison appeared as a witness in the August 1825 court session regarding the alleged assault by Jacob Clapp on John Brown, on 29 April 1825.2 
Tax List*He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1826 at Sandy Creek, Randolph, North Carolina; no acres, 1 white poll.3 
NoteB* In May 1828, Harrison was charged with assaulting Jacob Foust; Abraham Curtis bound surety for the appearance of Harrison.4 
Court* On 1 May 1828 at County Criminal Court, Randolph, North Carolina, Harrison Curtis was charged with assaulting Jacob Foust. Abraham Curtis was bound surety for the appearance of Harrison.5 
Tax ListHe appeared on the personal property tax list of 1829 at Mount Pleasant, Randolph, North Carolina.6 
Marriage*He married Polly Wright on 29 July 1829 at Randolph, North Carolina; David Anderson [Curtis?], bondsman, Jno B. Troy, witness.7 
Census*Harrison Curtis and Polly Wright appeared on the census of 1830 at Second Regiment, Randolph, North Carolina, page 66, 1 female under 5, 1 male and 1 female 20-29.8 
NoteB* On 26 October 1835, Harrison Curtis and Josiah Lamb posted bond in connection with the charge that Harrison had fathered a child with Mary Stout; note that Mariah Curtis had a child with William G. Stout the same year.9 
NoteB On 18 May 1840, Messrs. Turner, Wright and Hays posted bond on behalf of Harrison Curtis, charged with an illegitimate child by Sarah Kivett.9 
NoteB On 4 December 1840, Harrison -x- Curtis posted bond for the marriage of John W. Marley and Belinda Fox.7 
Death*Harrison Curtis died circa January 1845 at Randolph, North Carolina; On 4 February 1845, the Randolph County Court "ordered that Fanny Curtis be allowed twelve dollars & 50 c for nursing and buriing Harrison Curtis." Harrison may have been resident at the county poor house.10,11 
NoteB* "ordered that Fanny Curtis be allowed twelve dollars & 50 c for nursing and buriing [sic] Harrison Curtis."12 
(Witness) BioSEBASTIAN COUNTY
M. D. Frazier, farmer of Sebastian County, Ark., was born in North Carolina December 1, 1823, and is the fourth son of ten children, three living, born to the marriage of George Frazier and Sarah Russell, both of whom were North Carolinians, born in 1777 and 1782, and died in 1865 and 1851, respectively. The father was a farmer, and a son of George and Mary Frazier, natives of North Carolina. George Frazier was a farmer and stock raiser, a soldier in the Revolutionary War, and was at the battle of Cowpens and Guilford Court-House. The paternal great-grandfather, Thomas Frazier, was a Scotchman, and at a very early day crossed the Atlantic and settled first in Pennsylvania and then in North Carolina. The maternal grandparents, George and Rebecca Russell, were born in England and North Carolina, respectively, the former coming to the United States and settling in North Carolina at an early day. He also served in the Revolutionary War. M. D. Frazier, whose name heads this sketch, remained in his native State until twenty-four years of age, receiving but limited early educational advantages. In 1847 he was married to Miss Rebecca Curtis, who was born in North Carolina on the 26th of May, 1830, and a daughter of Harrison and Mary (Wright) Curtis. The father was a distiller in North Carolina, and died in 1845, his wife dying in 1832. Mr. Frazier and family moved from North Carolina to Little Rock, Ark., in 1848, and afterward to Searcy County, thence to Texas in 1859, and in 1860 came to Sebastian County and bought the farm of eighty acres where he now lives. He has since increased his acreage to 700, with 240 acres under cultivation. He served in the Home Guards for some time during the war, and was quite severely wounded in the skirmish at Salem. He is a Mason, a member of the Methodist Protestant Church, and a Republican in politics, casting his first vote for James K. Polk. His children, who are living, are as follows: Sally I. (Mrs. Keener), B. F., John R., Julia A., Susan E. (Mrs. Taylor), and George M.11
