Milit-Beg*He began military service on 20 June 1862 at Blairsville, Union, Georgia, as a Private, Company F, 6th Georgia Cavalry, by Captain Anderson for "3 years or war." The muster roll for the period January to April 1863 noted he was "detailed as regimental blacksmith. No horse." Moses cousin, John Wesley, enlisted in Company A of the 6th Cavalry at Hiawasee on June 30, 1862, and another cousin, Spencer Lafayette, enlisted in Company B of the 6th Cavalry on May 10, 1862 at Blairsville.7 
NoteB* The muster roll of 4 February 1864 listed Moses as "deserted on or about September 4, 1863 near Charleston, Tennessee," in Bradley County. His cousins, William Jasper, John Wesley and Spencer Lafayette also deserted in the same area around the same time. Exactly what he did then is unknown. Family history says that he served in the Union Army, but no record of his service has been found. A good possibility is that he joined the Quartermaster Corps, which provided support for the Army but did not constitute military service.7

ObitMoses's obituary was published in the North Story Newspaper on 14 April 1908:
The subject of our sketch Moses Curtis was born December 26, 1826 in Burke County, N.C; lived there until grown, then moved to Georgia. His father was Thomas Moses Curtis b. 1802 NC and died 1885 GA. and his mother was Mary Moffitt b. 1797 in NC and d. 1877 in GA. Married Sallie Clemons b. ca. 1835 d. ca. 1861-1865 m. ca. 1851 was blessed with four children Thomas Andrew Curtis b. ca 1852 - d. ca. 1915 [my grandfather] Sarah Naomi Curtis William Allen Curtis Dycie Curtis During the civil war Moses and his oldest son Thomas Andrew fought for the Union Army and upon arriving home found the Confederate soldiers had murdered his wife. He then gathered his 3 children and Thomas and moved to McMinn County, Tennesee where he married Elizabeth Ann Grubb and they moved to Story, Arkansas and the following children were born; James Grant Curtis John Asbury Curtis Amos H. Curtis Benjamin Lafayette Curtis Elizabeth who preceded him to a higher life some two years ago. He came to Arkansas many years ago; lived back in the Muddy Mountins, three miles from the settlement, in close communion with his God. Father Curtis was a member of Methodist Church for over fifty years of his life and died in a full triumph of a living faith. Died February 14, 1908. He leaves three children and a host of friends and relatives to mourn his death, but our loss is heaven's gain. We no longer look into his aged face nor hear his voice, but he still lives in the hearts of our people. Funeral serverices were held the 5th, at Liberty, conducted by Elder Southard Rev. G. L. Gray; the text was St. John II[I?], chapter 11, 25th verse. His heart, was like a garden, Old-fashioned, quaint and sweet; A wealth of buds and blossoms, Hid in a still retreat Sweet violets of sympathy, Were always opening there And Liillies, white and pure, enclosed Each one, a whispered prayer. And from it still floats back to us, Ovecoming sin and strife, Sweet as the breath of roses' bloom, The fragrance of his life. 
(Witness) BioMoses Curtis was born December 26, 1826, near Old Fort in what was then Burke County, North Carolina. He died March 14, 1908, and is buried in Reed Cemetery, Story, Arkansas. Moses lived in North Carolina until he was grown, and then moved to Union County, Georgia, with his parents, Thomas and Mary Moffitt Curtis. As a young man in Georgia, he married Sarah Clemens and had four children: Thomas Andrew, born 1852; Sarah Naomi, born 1854; William Allen, born 1856; and Dycie, born 1859. The Civil War interrupted their peaceful lives, and Moses joined the Union Army. One day while Moses was away at war, bushwhackers came to the farm and his wife, Sarah, was beaten so severely that she died a few days after. This tragic incident resulted in Moses moving to McMinn County, Tennessee, after the war. There, he met Elizabeth Ann Grubb and they were married in 1866. She was born April 5, 1833, the daughter of William and Mahala Anderson Grubb. Moses and Elizabeth Ann had four children: James Grant, born 1867; John Asbury, born 1868; Amos H., born 1870; and Benjamin Lafayette, born 1874.

In about 1878, Moses and Elizabeth moved with their children to Arkansas, to a homestead in the Muddy Mountains, Sulphur Township, Montgomery County, several miles from a settlement. He farmed, did his own smithing, and hunted and fished in the mountains. Their isolated lives caused these early settlers to be individualists and independent. They taught their children resourcefulness, thrift, self-reliance and industriousness. Elizabeth Ann's descendants prized a piece of one of her handmade quilts. She helped grow the cotton, carded the cotton, spun the thread, and wove the material for the lining. The pattern was called The Wheel of Fortune. Moses and Elizabeth were members of the Methodist Church for over fifty years and died in full triumph of a living faith. Elizabeth died December 23, 1903, and is buried in Reed Cemetery. Five years later, Moses was buried at her side.

Lessie Lamb Curtis, daughter of Taylor Lamb, remembered Moses visiting her father's house many times when she was a girl, in the early 1900s. Moses would ride horseback to Story for supplies and often stop by the Lamb homestead to spend the night and visit. Moses was said to have been remarkably strong, even at age eighty-one. In March 1908, he had ridden horseback some miles out into the hills and in mounting his horse to return home, he fell and injured himself. He did mount, however, and rode home where he died a few days later. Funeral services were held at Liberty School house. His obituary printed April 14, 1908, in an Arkansas newspaper, The Signal , stated, "We no longer look into his aged face nor hear his voice, but he still lives in the hearts of our people."
