Birth*Louisa Curtis was born in 1840 at North Carolina.1,2 
(Witness) CensusShe appeared on the census of 7 January 1851 District 28, Benton, Alabama, in the household of Asbury Curtis and Elizabeth F. (Betsy) Addington; page 305b, occupation blacksmith, real estate valued at $600, 8 children at home, plus Thomas M. Curtis, age 22.1 
Married Name As of 1 February 1858,her married name was Duckworth.3 
Marriage*Louisa Curtis married Washington Duckworth on 1 February 1858 at Union, Georgia; by Thompson Collins, J.P.4 
(Witness) CensusLouisa Curtis appeared on the census of 28 July 1860 Blainesville P.O., Union, Georgia, in the household of Asbury Curtis and Elizabeth F. (Betsy) Addington; page 535, occupation blacksmith, real estate valued at $800, 9 children at home.5 
NoteB The assumption that Louisa married Duckworth, who died before 1860, is plausible because Louisa and 1 year old Rebecca appear in Asbury's household in 1860. No further record has been found for Washington Duckworth. Betsey Addington Curtis was too old to be Rebecca's mother. There is no way of knowing whether Louisa reverted to her maiden name or whether the 1860 census enumerator simply listed everyone as Curtis.5 
NoteB* Said to have "married a Yankee soldier and went north;" no further record.2

Mr. Jas. B. Curtis, Respected Pioneer, Died On Thursday
Mr. James Brady Curtis, affectionately known to many friends as "Uncle Jim" died Thursday at noon at the age of 88. Mr. Curtis came to Cherokee county from his North Carolina birthplace when he was a young man. He lived here practically all his life, and he gained the respect and admiration of the entire community. For several years he had been retired from active work, and for some time had been feeble, although able to be out part of the time. He was conscious almost to his last moments and died without apparent pain. He served as an officer for a quarter of a century, working with the U.S. Revenue Department and as deputy sheriff, chief of police and Bayliff here.
Mr. Curtis was twice married, and is survived by his wife and sons, Guy M., who is chief of the Canton fire department, and Sid, a railway engineer of Etowah, Tenn., and one daughter, Miss Vonceil, a senior in Canton High. Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon, with burial in Riverview, Jones Mercantile company in charge.15

ObitWatson's obituary was published in the Clay County Courier on 4 May 1900:
Watson Curtis was born in Buncombe County, North Carolina, November 12, 1814 and died at his home in Clay County, North Carolina Jan. 8, 1900 at the ripe old age of 85 years, 1 month and 26 days. He was the son of Rev. Amos Curtis, one of the pioneer preachers of this country, who with his family moved here in 1837.
Watson Curtis bought land at the Indian land sale in 1839. He was married to Miss Malinda E. Jones and moved to his farm on which he lived all his life. Twelve children were born to him, nine of whom lived to be grown. Five are still living. Three in Texas and two in this County. His first wife died in 1865. Several years afterwards he married Sophia Matheson.
So far as the writer knows, the death of Mr. Curtis leaves only one man in this County who still owns and lives upon the land that was purchased at the old Indian land sale—to-wit—Uncle John C. Moore, an aged and honored citizen of Tusquitte, who still lingers on the shores of time.
Watson Curtis was appointed deputy sheriff before this county was cut off from Cherokee, and was elected the first sheriff of Clay Co. at its organization. He served as deputy and High Sheriff 11 years, and as county treasurer for 4 years. Also for several years he filled the office of treasurer of the Masonic fraternity. Brother Curtis professed religion and joined the Methodist Church when quite a young man. He was recording steward of this, then the Fort Hembree Circuit for several years. Watson Curtis served as enrolling officer—was too old for active service in War and was sheriff at the time.9

Death*Parthenia Miranda Green died on 24 April 1930 at Gunter, Grayson, Texas, at age 78.1 
ObitParthenia Miranda's obituary was published in the Gunter News on 1 May 1930:
Texas Pioneer, Resident Of Gunter, Passes Away
Words of respect to the memory of Mrs. Parthenia Miranda Curtis, who was born in Alabama, 1851, Oct. 4th, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Green of Fort Payne, Alabama.
She became an orphan at the age of three, going to Athens, Tennessee to make her home with Rev. Thomas J. Russell of near Athens, Tennessee, a Baptist Minister, and remained there until her marriage to W. J. Curtis at Athens, Tennessee, in the year of 1868, April 2nd. They came to Texas 1869 in a covered wagon, settling near Waco, Texas. After living west of Waco for some years, she moved in 1880 to a ranch north of Mart, in McLennan County. In 1909 she moved to Plainview, Hale County, Texas, where she lived for four years, after which she stopped in Krum two years. From Krum she came to Gunter, Texas, in 1916, where she remained until her death, April 24, 1930.
She was the mother of eight children, two girls and six boys. All lived until they were grown, six of whom survive her. She became a Christian in her youth and joined the Baptist Church in East Tennessee, and lived a faithful Christian; loyal to her Lord, being an active Christian worker always. She was very earnest and modest in all her work The Vernal Baptist 'Church northwest of Mart, Texas was organized in her home in 1900. Her husband, W. J. Curtis, and her oldest son H. V. Curtis were elected deacons of the church when it was organized. Her home was always the preachers' home. When the Vernal Baptist Church was built, 1901, her husband offered his cotton field as a place where anyone could make money to pay on the church building; he would give all the cotton they would pick to go to the payment of the church debt, being credited to the picker. Mother Curtis, after doing her usual work in her home, picked more than forty dollars worth of cotton and applied that amount on the church debt.
She paid the railway fare of the young preachers who came out from Baylor University to preach, in addition to their salaries. She loved her church and denomination. She gave to the several mission boards regularly and provided gifts to Christian Education and hospitals, ministerial relief and orphans' homes, also helped to build many church houses, being one of the principal givers at Gunter, Texas where her membership remained until her death. She loved the orphans and Buckner's Orphan Home. At one time she deeded two hundred acres of land near Krum, Texas, to the Baptist State Convention of Texas, with the understanding that $300 per. year be paid the orphan's home to feed the children of the home one day in the year on her husband's birthday, or in memory thereof, as he had done.
In her last years she meekly and quietly made her gifts to the several Baptist causes direct, helping many needy institutions. She never boasted of her gifts, neither did she mention them when she made her final statement of how she had administered as administratrix of the estate ($120,000) one hundred and twenty thousand dollars, community property of herself and her late husband, W .J. Curtis, which she divided among her children and God's kingdom.
She was a woman of sterling character with a great mind, her perception was clear and keen and in her own mild and modest way, with love toward all, and malice toward none, she reposed confidence toward all until they proved untrue. She was conscientious in all things with a motive of love and helpfulness to all.
She was left a widow in 1917, shouldering the responsibilities as administratrix of a large estate, and the burdens of properly dividing the estate among her children. In 1918 she contracted the flu, which seemed to affect her feet and limbs, making it hard for her to get about. She never complained of her aches and pains, yet she suffered with high blood pressure until near the end of her life, when her body began to weaken, and four days before her death, she took her bed. And with her great mind she continued directing her own affairs. She knew she could not stay long, and, as she had done before, gave some directions as to paying her doctor and nurse, who had tried to comply with her every wish.
She slept most of the last day, and did not wish to be bothered. At the close of day, 9 o'clock, p. m., she breathed several long and deep breaths, as one who had reached the end of a race well run. With a smile, she fell on sleep without a struggle and, complying with her request that she be not embalmed, she was dressed in garments mostly prepared by her own hands for this event, by the hands of loved ones, and rested overnight in the home prepared for her by her late husband.
The funeral service took place at her late residence, also the home of Rev. and Mrs. J.R.G. Russell, Gunter, Texas, at 6:30 a. m., Friday morning conducted by her pastor, Rev. J. P. McBeth. Her body was taken overland to Waco, Texas and placed by the side of her late husband, W. J. Curtis, in Park Lawn Cemetery, by her old friends, J. W. and J. L. Leazer, Undertakers at Valley View, Texas.
At Waco, Texas, Rev. J. L. Walker, one of her loved pastors' of former days, conducted a short service at the grave, giving many words of high tribute to her as one who had helped all institutions of our beloved denomination, and in her death we had suffered a great loss, but heaven was he gain, and she had received her crown.
