James Curtis1

M, b. 5 March 1748, d. circa November 1827
FatherUnion County Curtis1 b. c 1725, d. b 1800
Last Edited13 May 2009
Birth*James Curtis was born on 5 March 1748 at Virginia; date of birth for James Curtis, Rev War pensioner of Lawrence County, TN; little proof he was the same person in the 1790 Union County SC census.1 
Milit-Beg*He began military service in October 1776 at Court House, King William, Virginia, (or 1775) in the Company of Captain James Gray, 7th Virginia Regiment commanded by Colonel William Heath and brigade commanded by General Woodford of the Virginia Line. He enlisted for seven years, making him eligible for pension under the 1818 Act.1 
Milit-End*He ended military service in 1781 at Charleston, Charleston, South Carolina; discharged by Colonel Wade Hampton; he was wounded in the legs by a musket ball at the battle of Brandywine. He stated he was discharged in 1782/1783, but his career probably ended after the battle of Charleston in 1781.1 
NoteB A Revolutionary War private claim filed by James Curtis in Union County, South Carolina, appears to be a claim related to military service, the name Wade Hampton appearing as a witness. The documents are mostly illegible, but this seems to connect him to the Rev War pensioner named James Curtis.2 
Census*He appeared on the census of 1790 at Union, South Carolina, page 49, 1 male under 15, 1 male over 15 and three females.3 
NoteB On 22 March 1819, he appeared in Lincoln County, Tennessee court to apply for his pension.1 
NoteB* He appeared in Lawrence County court to apply for his pension on 8 January 1822. Daughter Mary, age 20, who was afflicted, another daughter L..., age 16.1 
Death*He died circa November 1827 at Lawrence, Tennessee.1,4 
Probate*His estate was probated on 13 December 1827 at Lawrence, Tennessee; Isaiah Curtis was appointed administrator; relationship unproven.4 
NoteB On 8 October 1829, Isaiah Curtis filed the inventory of James Curtis, dec'd with the court, consisting of household goods and apparently no land.4 
NoteB On 4 January 1831, the Lawrence County Court approved the settlement with Isaiah Curtis, administrator, finding the amount of $10.30 1/2 cents after payments of $49 20 1/2 cents.4
