Anecdote*Mary's death certificate lists Mariah as her mother and no one as her father. In 1844, Maria Curtis "single" named Leonard Wren as the father of her unnamed child; Messrs. Staley, Brower and McMasters posted bond on behalf of Wren. Leonard Wren appeared in the 1840 Randolph County census, living next to Emaziah Curtis and a few dwellings away from Judy Curtis. He reported his age as 20-30, no other males in the household, 3 females ages 20-30 and 1 female age 50-60. It is likely that Mariah lived with Leonard, since her age was in the 20-30 year bracket and she is not listed in a separate household.2,4

ObitGlenn Melba's obituary was published in the Reporter on 25 November 1958:
Glenn Curtis, 64, an all-time great in Indiana coaching ranks who piloted four teams to state high school basketball championships, died today in Robert Long Hospital. Mr. Curtis had suffered a stroke in August 1955, shortly after his retirement as Superintendent of schools. This occurred in Banff, Alberta, Canada, where the family was vacationing. He was hospitalized for six weeks at that time, but after a successful recovery returned to Martinsville. He had not been well this past summer and became quite ill on Nov. 12, when he was taken to the Indianapolis hospital for observation. He underwent surgery on Nov. 18 for a stomach disorder.
Curtis, whose nickname in athletic circles was “The Old Fox,” coached four state championship teams. He took a winning Lebanon quintet to the finals in 1917, and then made Martinsville hoop crazy by producing champs in 1924, 1927, and 1933. This great high school coach used as a basis for teaching boys how to play basketball and win these encounters a philosophy which he called his triangle to success. It included industriousness, as he was a firm believer that there was no substitute for work and that his boys must seek perfection by practice. He contended that an athlete to be competitively great and achieve that desired pinnacle of success must have ambition, concentration, determination, fight, sincerity, honesty, integrity, and reliability.
Curtis’ coaching career also included the college and professional world. After enjoying his greatest success while coach at Martinsville for 18 years, he moved to Indiana State, his college alma mater. His 1945-46 quintet copped the Midwest Invitational tourney at Chicago. Later, Curtis became coach of the professional Indianapolis Kautskys, but he quit in mid-season. His entire coaching record included 663 victories against only 187 setbacks for a nifty .778 average. At Martinsville, he led the Artesians to 15 section and 12 regional tourney crowns. His 1926 and 1928 Martinsville teams were runners-up in the state finals.
Curtis returned to Martinsville in 1948, first as acting superintendent of the city education system. Later, he was named city superintendent of schools. His professional coaching career also included stints with Detroit in the old Basketball Assn. of America. He also coached Indiana’s high school “All Stars” in their mid-summer clash against Kentucky.
The oldest of eight children of G.W. and Gertrude Alexander Curtis, he was born on a farm near Crown Center Mar. 4 1894. He attended the Crown Center School and Eminence High School where he graduated in 1911 before entering Indiana State Teachers College. Following his years there, he taught at Crown Center, Advance, Plainfield, Lebanon, and Rushville before taking over the Martinsville coaching post.
In 1917 he was married to Mary Dea Smith and the couple would have celebrated their forty-first wedding anniversary on Christmas Eve. Following his retirement he purchased a home at Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and since then has spent his winters there, returning to Martinsville for the summer and fall at the family home, 87 South Sycamore Street. A veteran of World War I, Mr. Curtis belonged to the American legion and also the Elks Club. He was vice president of Curtis French Surgical Supplies.
Besides his wife he leaves four sisters and two brothers, who are Mrs. Lee McGinnis and Mrs. Earl Brown of Crown Center, Mrs. Cyril Tudor of Monrovia, Mrs. Paul Redmon and D.F. Curtis of Indianapolis, and Hugh Curtis of Crown center. A brother, Herbert Curtis, died a few years ago. The funeral will be Thursday afternoon at the Wilhite & Son Funeral Home.11
