(Witness) BioWilliam Curtis was born near Fayetteville, North Carolina, on October 1, 1805, and was a lad when his parents came to Indiana, and made them a home in the then wilderness, about 3 miles east of the town of New Pekin, Washington County, Indiana. William Curtis grew up on this pioneer farm and married Nellie Morgan, who was born July 9, 1807, and who also was but a child when her parents, Isaac Morgan and wife, came to this section and settled a mile south of the present village South Boston.
Following their marriage, they lived on a far east of South Boston, until 1853, when he bought a farm in Section 17, Polk Township, which he gradually increased until he became the owner of a farm of 200 acres, and there they lived until retirement in old age.
These old pioneers continued to live at the old Curtis homestead in Polk Township until Feb. 24, 1872, when Nellie was called in death. After his wife’s death, Grandfather Curtis lived with his children at or near the old homestead until he was called to his reward Dec. 29, 1883.1
