ObitJames Montgomery's obituary was published in the Neosho Times on 7 July 1927:
James Montgomery Curtice was born in Giles County, Tennessee, November 28, 1855, and passed away at his home in Ritchey, Missouri, July 2, 1927. He was consequently 71 years, 7 months, and 4 days of age, when called to his reward. His boyhood days were spent in Tennessee, but in early manhood he migrated to Texas where he remained a short time. He then came to Missouri, and located on a farm in Newton county a few miles west of Pierce City. In 1886, he removed his residence to ‘Ritchey, where he has since made his home.
He was united in marriage December 27, 1877 to Miss Hester Flippen of Newton County, Missouri, and they planned to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary in December of the present year. Mr. and Mrs. Curtice were the parents of four sons and four daughters, but two sons, Ernest and Edward, preceded their father to the Great Beyond. Besides his wife, Mr. Curtice is survived by the following sons and daughters; Mrs. R.K. Hughes and Mrs. H.L. Johnson of Tulsa, Okla., Mrs. A.E. McCanns of Sapulpa, Okla., Lloyd Curtice of Portland, Ore., W.A. Curtice and Mrs. W.G. Mullens of Ritchey. He also leaves to mourn his departure two brothers, four half brothers, fifteen grandchildren and many other relatives.
The deceased was originally engaged in farming, but upon his arrival at Ritchey he obtained employment in a mill. This was the first mill owned by the Ritchey Milling Company. In 1890, e and the late J. T. Sanders formed a partnership and operated a grain elevator. His partner died in 1892, and Mr. Curtice became sole owner of the business, which he conducted during practically the remainder of his life. He bought large quantities of wheat, which were hauled to his elevator from all directions and frequently from distant points. He was well and favorably known by the farmers in a large trade territory, and many of them preferred to deal with him the sale of their grain. At different times he had different business interests. He dealt in cattle and hogs, managed the Ritchey telephone system, of which he was on of the heaviest stockholders, and engaged in some mining, which returned a good profit. He was the first president of The Bank of Richey and remained in this position as long as his health permitted. He continued to be a director of this bank until his death.
In a public capacity, he served faithfully and efficiently. He was a road overseer for some time. He was also a member of the Ritchey school board, and to this office he was re-elected for several terms. For many years, he held membership in the Odd Fellow, Masonic, and Woodman of the World lodges. The deceased had been in failing health for several years. His death resulted from an arterial disease.
Mr. Curtis became a Christian early in life, and about 1877 he joined the Berwick Cumberland Presbyterian church. Since 1886, he has been a loyal member of the “Ritchey Presbyterian church, and in the congregation he was a capable and influential leader for many years. For a long time, he was a ‘Sunday school superintendent and a ruling elder. He was a church trustee at the time of his death. He was remarkably generous in giving financial support to religious and charitable work. Mr. Curtis had many excellent traits of character. He was very unselfish, somewhat conservative, and possessed of good practical judgment. His activities were marked by industry, concentration, and efficiency. In his dealings, he was always pleasant and strictly honorable. He was affectionate and indulgent toward his family. Friends and neighbors found him to be kind and accommodating. Socially, he was friendly, refined, and properly reserved. He showed much patience, forbearance, and charity toward his fellow man. Because of his fine personal qualities, he became very popular. His death is greatly regretted by many people.
Funeral services were conducted Sunday morning at the Ritchey Presbyterian Church. Rev. J.J. Dunham of Chanute, Kansas, a former pastor of the deceased, officiated. He was assisted by the present pastor, Rev. H. Pinkston. The church was filled by a sympathetic and saddened congregation. The body was laid to rest in the I.O.O.F. cemetery near Newtonia.4
