M, b. circa 1759, d. circa 1818
FatherFielding/Russel's Grandfather Curtis b. c 1700
Last Edited1 Aug 2016
Birth*John Curtis was born circa 1759; no primary source available; usually said to have been born in South Carolina, but no supporting evidence.1 
Name Variation As of 1759, John Curtis was also known as John Thomas Curtis He is often referred to with a middle name, but no record appears to exist to support that usage. He had a son John T. Curtis and grandsons named John Thomas Curtis and John Thomas McMurray, which may have lead researchers to assume a middle name he did not have.2 
Residence*He lived circa 20 August 1782 at Richmond, Georgia; Based on his bounty warrants, John must have served in the Richmond County militia or have been a resident of the County in order to qualify.3 
NoteB John Curtis received two bounty grants, which by themselves do not prove he fought in the Revolutionary War. Bounty grants were given to ordinary citizens in good standing and ordiinary militia members, as well as men who fought in the war.

Record 1: State of Georgia "Rochmon" County: This is to certify that John Curtis is entitled to two hundred and fifty acres of land as a bounty agreeable to an act of General Assembly "past" at Augusta the 20 of August 1782. Given under my hand at August 7 of April 1784. By L. Jackson Colo.

Record 2: Georgia, By the Court of Justices of the County of Washington to Frances Tennell, Esq., County Surveyor ... to lay out a tract of land which shall contain two hundred eighty seven 1/2 acres in the said County of Washington in lieu of an ... warrant granted in Franklin. 6 April 1785. This was a Citizens Grant, according to Bockstruck.3,4 
Marriage*He married Agnes Johnson, daughter of Thomas Johnson, circa 1785 at Georgia.1 
NoteB* Note: List of children compiled from Johnson Family History (except for the son John); additional children listed are:
1. William Curtis, died young
2. Mary Curtis, died young
3. Jane Curtis, died without issue

1. Anne Curtis, married Joseph Cook 11 Oct 1818
2. William Curtis, married Sarah Grier 10 Jan 1821
3. Patsey Curtis, married John Greene 20 May 1821

Agnes Johnson1

F, b. 21 December 1766, d. circa 1832
FatherThomas Johnson1 b. 10 Mar 1742, d. 5 Mar 1816
Last Edited5 Aug 2012
Birth*Agnes Johnson was born on 21 December 1766 at Rowan, North Carolina; daughter of Thomas Johnson and Agnes Greer; in the part of Rowan County that became Iredell County.1 
Marriage*She married John Curtis, son of Fielding/Russel's Grandfather Curtis, circa 1785 at Georgia.1 
Married Name As of circa 1785,her married name was Curtis.1 
Land Sale* On 5 September 1787 Agnes Johnson and John Curtis sold land at Greene, Georgia, to Thom Bell of Wilkes County, for 100 pounds sterling, described 287 1/2 acres lying on Fort Creek in Greene County, witnessed by John Bailey and James Ware. John and Agnes were "of" Wilkes County. John signed his name and Agnes signed her mark. Registered 20 July 1792. This was the land John received pursuant to the "Citizens Grant" of 6 April 1785. There is no record of the Richmond County grant land, and John may have sold the warrant without taking possession of the land.2 
NoteB There is no reason to believe that Agnes and her sons Thomas Gilbert and John were anywhere other than Greene County when the 1820 census was taken, there is no record of her and the likely households where she might have lived do not show a female of her age. The most likely conclusions are that she was not enumerated or that she and her children were among the 7 "other person" in the household of Robert Curtis.3 
NoteB* Pursuant to an act of the General Assembly on 15 May 1821, Agness Curtis of Ranklins District of Green County received 202 1/2 acres in the First District, Number 8, of Houston County, which became Crawford County in 1822. The certificate was issued by Governor George M. Troup on 6 December 1826 and registered on 9 December 1826.4
 
Tax List*Agnes Johnson appeared on the personal property tax list of 1822 at Capt. Rankin's District 141, Greene, Georgia; 202 !/2 acres in Houston County, that she won in the lottery, no free white males listed, which raises of the question of where was her son John.5 
Tax ListShe appeared on the personal property tax list of 1824 at Greene, Georgia; not listed in Greene County.5 
NoteB The Johnson of Greene County document states Agnes drew a lot in Upson County, Georgia in the 1827 land lottery, but Lucian Knight's book does not list her name.1 
Land Sale* On 30 March 1827 Agnes Johnson sold land at Crawford, Georgia, to the Deacons of the Mount Carmel Church for $5, described as a one-acre parcel, part of Lot No. 8 in the First District on the corners with lots Nos. 9--33 & 34. Witnessed by Thomas Teagin and Robert Curtis, J.P. The reversion right to this property fell to Leonidas Curtis, whose executor sold it in 1851.6 
(Witness) CensusShe appeared on the census of 1830 Crawford, Georgia, in the household of John T. Curtis and Unknown First Wife; 1 male and 1 female under 5, 1 male and 1 female 5-9, 1 female 10-14, 1 male 20-29, 1 female 20-29, 1 male 30-39, 1 female 60-69; lived next to James McMurray. In all likelihood, the elderly female was his mother Agnes. The male age 20-29 is unknown.7 
Death*Agnes Johnson died circa 1832 at Crawford, Georgia; The Johnson of Greene County document states Agnes lived in Crawford County in 1830, Some researchers state her date of death as 5 September 1820, which was the date her mother Agnes died. Some researchers report the death of Robert's wife Sarah in 1832, which might be Agnes.7,1 
NoteB Agnes' property, lot number 8 in District 1, was divided into four 50-acre parcels. The last of the four parcels, known as "the Curtis place," was sold by the heirs of Lyman Curtis in 1880. Lyman presumably inherited that parcel from his father John. Thomas G. Curtis sold his share to John to 1843. I have not accounted for the other two parcels, which may have gone Robert and Sarah Frances. Assuming she died about 1832, there were four children living.8
