Samuel Curtis

M, b. circa 1720, d. between 1775 and 1779
Last Edited19 Feb 2013
     Samuel Curtis was born circa 1720 at America/England; there was no age exemption from the colonial North Carolina poll tax, so tax records are not instructive in estimating his date of birth.1,2 As of circa 1720, Samuel Curtis was also known as Samuel Curtice. Only James and Joseph are documented sons of Samuel; DNA test results and circumstantial evidence are consistent with Samuel having nine sons. It is likely Samuel had 1 or more additional daughters and possibly 1 more son. No record exists of his wife's name. The ancestral family is the Curtises of Derbyshire, England, Quakers who came to Burlington County, New Jersey in 1680. It has not been determined whether Samuel was born in England, or in New Jersey, and followed the typical migration path through Virginia, arriving in North Carolina in the 1750s. 1758 is the first record of him in North Carolina; no Curtis land records have been found prior to the Revolutionary War.3 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1758 at Rowan, North Carolina; two polls.4 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1759 at Rowan, North Carolina; one poll.5 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1761 at Rowan, North Carolina; one poll.6 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1768 at William Millikan's District, Rowan, North Carolina; three polls, sons Joseph and James; area is now included in southern Guilford and northern Randolph counties.7 Regulators' Advertisement No. 8 of 1768 includes the name Samuel Curtis of Orange County. The eastern portion of present-day Randolph County, including Sandy Creek, was then part of Orange County. This could be either the elder Samuel Curtis or his son Samuel (Jr.). Because the names of the adjacent signatures on the advertisement correspond to those of Samuel (Jr.'s) neighbors in the 1779 tax list, I am inclined to believe this is Samuel (Jr.), whose name may have been added to the list by his militia captain. Samuel Sr. is thought to have lived on Caraway Creek, rather than Sandy Creek, because his name appears on the Rowan County tax lists of 1758-1768, rather than Orange County.8,9 James, Joseph, Samuel and Thomas Curtis appeared on the list of debtors of Col. John McGee, and Orange County, NC merchant; unclear which Samuel this is; also Elijah & Elisha Isaacks, Coble, Nation, Robins, Staley, Trogdon, Vickrey and Welborn.10 He died between 1775 and 1779; No further records after early 1770s; he might have left the area following the Battle of Alamance Creek, perhaps moving to western North Carolina.

     Lovey (Love) (?) was born circa 1749; believed to be one of the two females aged 80-89 in the 1830 Clark County, Indiana census; date of birth is set equal to the estimate for Joseph.3 As of between 1770 and 1775,her married name was Curtis.4 She married Joseph Curtis, son of Samuel Curtis, between 1770 and 1775 at Guilford, North Carolina; rough estimate; no marriage record.4 As of between 1775 and 1779, Lovey (Love) (?) was also known as Love or Lovett Curtis. On 13 October 1796 Lovey (Love) (?) purchased land at on the waters of Caraway, Randolph, North Carolina, approximately 40 acres, for which "Love Curtis or Curtise" paid ten pounds to William Alexander, acting on behalf of David Alexander.5 She witnessed the tax of John Curtis in 1803 at John Clark's List, Capt. Redding's District, Randolph, North Carolina; "John Curtice of Lovey," 175 acres, 1 white poll.6 On 12 January 1808, Love Curtis, John Curtis and Nathan Overman posted bond for David Curtis, accused along with Levy Leech, on suspicion of accessory to receiving and concealing money from a negro man, the property of James Low, named Prince, that was stolen from Shubel Gardner; unclear whether this is David Curtis, son of Thomas Sr., or a younger man, otherwise unknown.7 The name "Love Curtis" on the 1810 list of members of the Abbots Creek Baptist Metting House; no further information.8 Lovey (Love) (?) appeared on the census of 1810 at Randolph, North Carolina, page 160, 1 male under 10, 1 male and 1 female 16-25, 1 female 26-44; should be 1 female over 45, since she was over 45 in the 1800 census; names looks like "Lovey Custis."9 She appeared on the census of 1820 at Washington Twp., Clark, Indiana, page 26, 1 male and 1 female under 10, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 26-44, 1 female over 45.10 She appeared on the census of 1830 Northeast of the State Road, Clark, Indiana, in the household of Benjamin Curtis; page 8, 1 male and 2 females under 5, 1 female 5-9, 1 male 10-14, 1 male 40-49, 3 females--20-29, 30-39 and 80-89.11 Lovey (Love) (?) died between 1831 and 1839 at Clark, Indiana.12

     Thomas Curtis Sr. was born circa 1746; If Thomas was born as early as 1745, he should have appeared as a poll in the 1761 census; he did appear in the 1768 census making his date of birth not later than 1752; this assumes he was in North Carolina in 1761, as were Samuel and Joshua; Virginia is a likely place of birth but no record has yet appeared.1,3 He married Eleanor Bryant, daughter of John Bryant, circa 1763 at Rowan, North Carolina.1 If Thomas and Eleanor had any daughters, they probably were born between 1770 and 1775; in the 1790 census, they reported 3 boys under 16 (Moses, Amos & Benj.) and 1 over 16 (David); Thomas Jr., Joshua and John were in their own households.4 Thomas Curtis Sr. appeared on the personal property tax list of 1768 at Rowan, North Carolina; no polls.5,6 James, Joseph, Samuel and Thomas Curtis appeared on the list of debtors of Col. John McGee, an Orange County, NC merchant; unclear which Samuel this is; also Elijah & Elisha Isaacks, Coble, Nation, Robins, Staley, Trogdon, Vickrey and Welborn. His place of business was in Randolph County after it was formed in 1789.7 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1779 at William Millikan's List, Randolph, North Carolina; 2 horses, 6 cattle and 25 acres of improved lands, no polls.6,8 He entered land on 10 May 1780 at Randolph, North Carolina, described as 250 acres on both sides of Carraway adjacent to Samuel Lowe. James Curtis and Thomas Curtis Jr. carried chains for the survey.9 On 12 June 1780 Thomas made an entry for 150 acres of land on both sides of Caraway Creek, including "James Curtis improvements." Thomas Curtis Jr. and Peter Ledford carried chains.6,10 In the December 1781 session of the Randolph County Court, Thomas Curtis, Samuel Curtis, Benjamin Curtis and John Curtis "charged with having joined the British Arme, to this Court appeared and discharged for want of Testimoney and took the Oath of Allegiance to the State of North Carolina." On 25 December 1781, Governor Alexander Martin offered full pardons to Tory sympathizers provided they were not guilty of "murder, robbery, and house breaking," and that they surrender and enlist in the Continental battalions for one year. None of these men are known to have enlisted.11 On 4 December 1781, the Commissioners of Randolph County issued an interest-bearing note in the amount of 9 1/4 Spanish Milled Dollars to Thomas Curtis, in return for "provisions and forage at the prices ascertained. . . by the Congress of the United States."11 On 14 December 1781, a certificate of purchase by Wm. Bell, County Commissioner, from Thomas Curtices "Provisions & forage at the prices ascertained in Spanish milled Dollars. . . amountnig to nine and one forth spanish milled dollars." The March 1784 Randolph County execution docket shows that Thomas Curtice and son Thomas collected about 2 pounds from Benj. Reams & wife; this proves Thomas Jr. was the son of Thomas.12 On 2 November 1784, a deed was issued to Thomas by the State of North Carolina for the same 150 acres; chainbearers were Thomas Curtis, Jr. and Peter Ledford. In the December 1784 court session, a warrant was issued to the sheriff to "take the bodies of Thomas Curtice, Jr. and Thomas Curtis, Sen., Planters. . . have them before the Justices of our County Court of Please and Quarter Sessions. . . on second Monday in March next. . . to answer John Collier, in behalf of himself and William C. Millikan, John Arnold, James Douggan, and the rest of their associates. . . and render unto him the sum of thirty pounds current money which they unjustly detain. Damage Twelve pounds.13 On 11,14 and 15 September 1787, Thomas Curtice served as a juror in Randolph County Court.14 In 1788 he signed a petition urging the General Assembly to establish a new court house building at the Cross Roads.15 In Sep-Oct 1788 he signed a petition urging the General Assembly to ratify the Constitution.16 He appeared on the census of 1790 at Randolph, North Carolina, page 313, 3 males under 16, 2 males over 16, 1 female.4 James Curtis, Thomas Curtis Senr and Samuel Curtis were summoned for jury duty for the March 1790 court session.11 John and Thomas Curtis named as witnesses, William York planter charged with assault upon one Francis Arnold on 7 March 1790.17 Thomas Curtis Senr and Benjamin Curtis were summoned for jury duty for the March 1791 Court session.11 On 18 September 1792 Thomas Curtis Sr. sold land at Randolph, North Carolina, On 18 September 1792, Thomas and Ellenor sold 250 acres of land on Caraway Creek, adjoining Samuel Lowe, to Leonard Ellrod. This probably indicates the date of their removal to Burke County, North Carolina.18,6 He; The November 1794 Randolph court minutes state that Thomas Curtice was allowed 12 miles for each court he attended as a witness in the case Robert Reding v. Alex Robbins; more likely this is Thomas Jr. than his father.11 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1797 at Joseph Dobson's Co., Burke, North Carolina; no acreage, no polls, which indicates this was Thomas Sr., who would not have been subject to the poll tax at his age; being 50 years old or over is consistent with the 1746 date of birth.19 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1799 at Burke, North Carolina; no acreage or poll information.20 He appeared on the census of 1800 at Burke, North Carolina, 1 male 10-15, 1 male and 1 female 16-25, 1 male and 1 female over 45; Benj., Amos and an unknown female; Moses' whereabouts are unknown, but may have been off studying.21 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1800 at Captain Montfort's Company, Burke, North Carolina; 100 acres, list is labeled as "pre-1800" by authors; "Ursley" Curtice listed with 100 acres; identity unknown; Allison Maffet and Bird families also present.22 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1803 at Captain James Young's Company, Burke, North Carolina; 100 acres, no polls.23 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1804 at Captain James Young's Company, Burke, North Carolina; 150 acres, no polls.24 A Burke County deed proven 2 March 1809 by Joshua Curtis evidences a gift of property from Thomas Curtis to Benjamin Curtis; Thomas & Eleanor appear to be the elderly couple in Benj.'s household in the 1810 census. This is an important element of proof of parentage.25 He appeared on the census of 1810 Morgantown, Burke, North Carolina, in the household of Benjamin Curtis; page 335, 1 male and 1 female 16-25, 1 male and 1 female over 45, assumed to be Thomas & Eleanor.26 Thomas Curtis Sr. died between 1811 and 1820 at Burke, North Carolina; Thomas was certainly dead by 1820, when he does not appear in the census. The 1809 deed of gift to Benjamin suggests he may have died closer to 1810 than to 1820, as such gifts are usually made in return for support and care during the remaining lives. There are no further Burke County records for Thomas; most Burke County records were burned by the Yankees.27

John McGee, and Orange County, NC merchant; unclear which Samuel this is; also Elijah & Elisha Isaacks, Coble, Nation, Robins, Staley, Trogdon, Vickrey and Welborn.4 Joseph Curtis appeared on the personal property tax list of 1779 at William Millikan's List, Randolph, North Carolina; lived next to Benjamin.5 He entered land on 4 February 1779 at Randolph, North Carolina, described as 100 acres on the water of Carraway. Joseph apparently assigned this warrant to William Durnel, who assigned it to Samuel Millikan on 10 Jun 1787. Then on 4 June 1790, Milikan assigned the warrant to Joseph. The property was surveyed for Joseph Curtis on 26 August 1797 and a certificat was issued 7 June 1799. There are no deed records that refer to this property.6 Joseph appeared on the list of book accounts of Andrew Hoover, whose estate inventory was recorded in the September 1783 Randolph County court session. He appeared on the personal property tax list of 12 August 1785 at Captains Clark and Gray's District, Randolph, North Carolina; 1 white poll, 400 acres, neighbors were Low, Justice, Ellis, Younce, Harlon.7 In Sep-Oct 1788 he signed a petition urging the General Assembly to ratify the Constitution.8 On 4 June 1790, Samuel Millikan assigned a warrant for 100 acres of land on Caraway Creek to Joseph Curtis, which Millikan had obtained from William Durnel on 10 June 1787. This land was surveyed for Joseph Curtis on 26 August 1797, but there is no further record for this land.9 In December 1791 Joseph Curtis purchased land at Randolph, North Carolina, from John (illegible) , proven in open court by William Lane and (illegible).10 On 14 March 1792 a deed from Joseph Curtis to Thomas Layton and Stephen Alexander was proven in open court by Jeduthan Harper and ordered to be registered. This deed is not present in the Randolph County deed books!11 He died between 1795 and 1797 at Randolph, North Carolina; Love purchased 40 acres of land near Caraway in October 1796 and was widowed in 1800 census.12,13

The male over 45 is a puzzle because both Sam and Nelley's fathers were dead, opening the possibility that it was Grandpa Samuel.9 He and Nelley Coble appeared on the census of 1820 at Orange, North Carolina, page 162, 2 males under 10, 1 male 10-16 (not a son), 1 female 16-26, 1 male 18-26, 1 male over 45.9 Signed as a witness to the will of Daniel May; (Orange County Wills, Book E, page 36).

     John Curtis was born circa 1769 at Rowan, North Carolina; The proof that John was Samuel's son is circumstantial; John carried chains for Samuel's 1783 survey on Sandy Creek, and always lived next or near to him. Date of birth ranges from 1766 to 1774 based on 1800 and 1810 censuses; 1769 is the most consistent with his father's age as well as his household in 1790.2,1,4 John carried chains for Samuel Curtis' 100-acre survey on Sandy Creek, entered 10 December 1783.5 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1785 at Randolph, North Carolina; John is presumably the second white poll in Samuel's Curtis' household on the 1785 tax list.6 He married Martha Allred circa 1787 at Randolph, North Carolina; no marriage record; Martha Allred (Aldred) is a guess, based on the 1797 court record; John's estate record names "Judy, relic of John," so he may have had two wives, but the Judy in the estate records is definitely a different woman than Samuel's daughter Judy, Elaine.7 Rev. Offman named e.g., James, Polly, and Samuel as sons of John.1 John Curtis appeared on the census of 1790 at Sandy Creek Area, Randolph, North Carolina, page 285, 1 male over 16, 3 females, 1 other free person; listed next to Samuel.8 The belief that John's first wife was Martha Allred comes solely from the following court record: Jane Allred, wife of James Allred, Meriam Allred, daughter of John Allred, and Martha Curtis, wife of John Curtis, were charged with assaulting Mary Crabtree, wife of James Crabtree, on 17 September 1797. Mary Crabtree was sitting in a pew in the Sandy Creek Meetinghouse and the others were sitting behind. They kicked her and then would talk and laugh at her. The husbands and father posted bond for their respective appearances in court. I have surmised that the three girls were related. The case probably was dropped; I have found no information regarding the ruling of the court.7 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1799 at James Bain's List, Randolph, North Carolina; 1 white poll, 1 black poll, 75 acres, lived next to Samuel Curtis.6 He appeared on the census of 1800 at Hillsboro District, Randolph, North Carolina, page 308, 3 males and 2 females under 10, 1 female 10-15, 1 male and 1 female 26-44; one of the two females in the 1790 census is unaccounted for, but that does not mean she necessarily died.9 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1803 at Capt. York's District, taken by James Bain, Randolph, North Carolina; 1 white poll, 1 black poll, 75 acres, next to Samuel.6 John Curtis posted security for Caleb Ridge, shoemaker, accused of assaulting Frederick Brown at Brown's house on 28 February 1805; this also could be Joseph's son John.10 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1809 at Randolph, North Carolina; no acreage, 1 white poll and 1 black poll; Samuel and John were on the same page, but not next to each other.11 He appeared on the census of 1810 at Sandy Creek Area, Randolph, North Carolina, page 160, 1 male and 2 females under 10, 1 male 10-15, 2 females 16-25, 1 male and 1 female 26-44, 1 female over 45.12 He married Judy (?) after 1810 at Randolph, North Carolina; no marriage record; there is a single reference in John's estate file to Judy, relict of John.13 On 7 June 1813, John Curtice sold unto "Samuel Curtice my son a certain Negro boy named Ben" for $500, witnessed by John Brewer, John Brower and Judey Curtis; proven in court November 1814.14 John Curtis appeared on the personal property tax list of 1815 at Capt. Kivett's District, Randolph, North Carolina; no polls, no acreage, lived next to his son Samuel.6 He died on 4 July 1816 at Ward Creek, Randolph, North Carolina.15

Berkeley Springs has no more progressive business man than William Albert Rockwell, one of the pioneers of the fruit packing industry, and closely and prominently identified for a number of years with the leading interests, both financial and social, of his home town.
I) Tolbert Rockwell, was born near Berkeley Springs, Virginia, and spent his life as a farmer in his native county. He served as a soldier in the war of 1812, and in politics was a Democrat, but never held public office. He married Sarah Wicks, and the following children were born to them: 1. William, married Jane Adamanther; two children, John William and Sarah Betrock. 2. John, married Susan Mendenhall; sixteen children. 3. Elias, mentioned below. 4.

He served as a soldier in the civil war for a term of three years, enlisting in 1861 and in 1864 receiving an honorable discharge. He married Maggie Kiefer, born near Frederick City, Maryland, daughter of George and Anna Maria (Gruby) Kiefer, the latter a native of Germany.

(III) William Albert, fifth child and fourth son of Elias and Maggie (Kiefer) Rockwell, was born May 13, 1865, near Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. He attended the public schools of the neighborhood. He began his active life by assisting his father on the farm, afterward going to Baltimore where he was employed in the shops of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company. Later he had charge of steam heating and filled the position of gateman at the Union Station. After returning from Baltimore to his native place Mr. Rockwell turned his attention to fruit packing, discerning in that industry a field hitherto uncultivated in that part of the country, and in 1899, with characteristic enterprise and foresight, he engaged in that line of business. The undertaking prospered, his trade increased and he now ships his product to the middle and western states. He is a director of the Berkeley Springs Mutual Telephone Company and the Bank of Morgan County, being also a stockholder in both corporations. In politics he is a Democrat, but the only office which he has ever accepted is that of town councilman, which he held for two years. He is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, in which he has passed all chairs. He and his wife attend the Methodist Episcopal church. Mr. Rockwell is a fine type of the energetic, enterprising business man, a man useful wherever found, furnishing an example of the spirit of progress combined with unquestioned integrity, and greatly needed in every community.
Mr. Rockwell married, September 15, 1887, Elizabeth Widmyer, and the following children have been born to them: 1. Lillie May, a student at Goucher College, Baltimore. 2. Harry Penington, died in infancy. 3. Charles Berman, attended the City College, Baltimore, graduated in 1913; 4. and 5. Albert Leroy and William Roscoe, twins. 6. Elias Smith. Alford Berman Widmyer, father of Mrs. Elizabeth (Widmyer) Rockwell, was born near Berkeley Springs, where he is still living, engaged in agricultural pursuits. He married Sarah Ann Michael, who was also born in the neighborhood of Berkeley Springs, and they became the parents of the following children: 1. Elizabeth, wife of William A. Rockwell. 2. George Samuel, died in infancy. 3. Ella, married William Keyes; children: Odra, married Frank Johns and has one child; Lola; Mamie; Elmer R; Dorothy; Norman. 4. Carrie, died in infancy. 5. John, died in infancy. 6. Edith, married Charles H. Rockwell; one child, Harry. 7. Pearl, died in infancy. [Source: West Virginia History, Vol. 2]3

     Judy Curtis was born circa 1787 at Randolph, North Carolina; date of birth range is 1781-1789 based on 1830 census; this date of birth makes her 19 when David Anderson was born.3 Judy had four or five children, at least three by Jesse Y. Welborn, who moved to Posey County, Indiana and was a successful businessman there, one of the founders of the town of Mt. Vernon in Posey County, where many Randolph County residents moved. In February 1810, she had two children, and in 1812 filed a statement that Jesse Y. Welborn was the father of a male child, "Amisoah." In 1817, she filed another statement naming Jesse, but the child was not named. Blanchard's History of Morgan County (1884) states that David Anderson Curtis was the oldest of three children (two boys and a girl) of Jesse W. and Judy Curtis; the girls would seem to be Anna, who moved to Morgan County and later Iowa. David Anderson Curtis had children named Emaziah, Judy and Mariah. Mariah's date of birth might be earlier or later than 1811, and Anna's date of birth is 1810-1812, based on census reports.4,5 On 8 February 1810, the Randolph County grand jury cited 15 women for having children, or being pregnant with children, who might become chargeable to the county, including Judy, Fanny, Peggy and Betsey Curtice.4 On 15 June 1810, Judy Curtis and John Barton posted bond in the amount of one hundred pounds, rather than disclose the names of the father(s) of her two children.4 On 4 July 1812, the court directed the constable to apprehend Jesse Y. Welborn, based on Judy's statement that he had fathered a male child named Amisoah.4 The Wardens of the Poor Minutes for 4 May 1813 reflect the receipt from Sheriff Lane of two bastard fines of $5 from Judah Curtis.6 On 1 March 1817, the court ordered that Jesse Y. Welborn be brought before it to answer the charge that he had fathered a child by Judy Curtis. Jesse lived in Posey County, Indiana and had married in 1815.4 She appeared on the census of 1830 at Regiment 2, Randolph, North Carolina, page 6, 1 male 15-19, 1 female 20-29, 1 female 40-49.7 She appeared on the personal property tax list of 1838 at Sandy Creek, Randolph, North Carolina; 25 acres valued at $50, 0 polls.8 She appeared on the census of 1840 at Northern Division, Randolph, North Carolina, page 94, 1 female under 5, 1 female 20-29, 1 female 50-59.9 She died circa 27 April 1849 at Randolph, North Carolina; date of expenses for shroud for Judy Curtis, dec'd., itemized in Emaziah's estate file.10

     Jesse York Welborn was born on 27 December 1779 at Randolph, North Carolina.1,4 He married Elizabeth Warren on 28 August 1814 at Christian, Kentucky.5 Jesse York Welborn appeared on the census of 1820 at Mount Vernon, Posey, Indiana, page 305A, 2 males and 1 female under 10, 1 male and 1 female 10-15, 2 males 18-25, 1 female 16-25, 3 males 26-44, 1 female 26-44, 2 persons engaged n commerce.6 He died on 7 September 1835 at Mount Vernon, Posey, Indiana, at age 55.4 JAMES YORK WELBORN, physician and surgeon, head of the Walker Hospital and Clinic at Evansville, has through his professional attainments and the influence of his personal character added another name to the record of one of the oldest and most prominent families of Southern Indiana. Not only were the Welborns among the first to come across the Ohio River into Southern Indiana, but they were also first in the Colonial establishment of old Virginia. Doctor Welborn’s ancestor, John Welborn, settled at Jamestown, Virginia, May 24, 1609 . Doctor Welborn is a representative of the tenth generation of the American family. The names of the heads of these generations down to Doctor Welborn are John, Jonathan, Captain Thomas, Samuel, John, Jesse York, William Wallace, Dr. George Walker and James York.
The founder of the Indiana branch of the family was Jesse York Welborn, who was born in North Carolina, and, passing through Kentucky, arrived in Indiana Territory prior to 1810. He became a resident of Mount Vernon, Posey County. For a time he was postmaster, and it is said that he followed the same custom as Abraham Lincoln, carrying the letters in his tall hat and delivering them as he met the addressees.
Dr. James York Welborn represents the third consecutive generation of the family in the medical profession of Southern Indiana. His grandfather, Dr. William W. Welborn, graduated from the Evansville Medical College, and practiced at Stewartsville in Posey County until his death at the age of fifty-six. Dr. William W. Welborn married Hannah Walker. Her brother, Dr. George B. Walker, was at one time dean of the old Evansville Medical College, and thus two families of prominence in the medical history of Evansville were united by marriage. Mrs. W. W. Welborn died at the age of seventy-eight. Dr. George Walker Welborn was born at Mount Vernon in 1843, was educated in Asbury College, now DePauw University, at Greencastle, and during the Civil war served in the Hospital Corps of the Union army. For a time he was a merchant at Evansville, in 1877 was graduated from the Evansville Medical College, and then returned to Stewartsville, where he practiced his profession until his death on March 23, 1905. Dr. George W. Welborn married Martha Stinnette who was born in Kentucky, daughter of Whiting and Nettie (Britton) Stinnette. She is now eighty-five years of age. Her grandfather served with General Lafayette and was of French ancestry. Doctor and Mrs. George W. Welborn were married October 27, 1867, and had a family of four children: William W., born March 5, 1869; Anna A., born June 17, 1871; James York, and Helen A., born March 14, 1875. William married Rose Viers, lives at Cynthiana, Indiana, and has six children. Anna is on the business staff of her brother’s hospital at Evansville. Helen is the wife of James Steadman, a manufacturer at Braintree, Massachusetts, and has one daughter, Gratia.
James York Welborn was born at Stewartsville, Posey County, Indiana, January 28, 1873. He attended local schools, DePauw University at Greencastle, and was graduated in 1899 from the Marion Simms Medical School of Saint Louis. Since graduating he has practiced at Evansville for thirty-two years. He became associated with his cousin, Dr. Edwin Walker, in the Walker Hospital, and he is now the owner of this splendid hospital and clinic, and for many years has been its chief surgeon. During the World war he offered the facilities of the hospital to the Government and also served as consulting surgeon to the Marine Hospital. He has been commissioned a surgeon in the United States Public Health Service, with the rank of major. Doctor Welborn is a member of the Vanderburg County, Indiana State and Ohio Valley Medical Associations. He was elected a member of the Evansville City Council in 1921, is a Democrat, a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Methodist Episcopal Church. He also belongs to Evansville Lodge No. 64, A. F. and A. M., Evansville Consistory of the Scottish Rite and Hadi Temple of the Mystic Shrine. Doctor Welborn married in 1902 Miss Mamie Begley, daughter of Dr. Baxter Begley. Doctor Welborn has three children, Susanna, Mary A. and James Y., Jr. The son, who married Ruth Sadler, lives at Evansville where he is engaged in the real estate and insurance business. Susanna is the wife of R. R. Osborn, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and has a son, David R. The daughter Mary is a graduate of St. Margaret's School at Waterbury Connecticut, and now a student in Sarah Lawrence College at Bronxville, New York.

     Joshua Curtis was born circa 1766 at North Carolina; There is no direct record that establishes Thomas & Eleanor as his parents, but the circumstantial evidence is convincing. Date of birth should be in the range of 1766-1769, based on available records.1 He married Mary Curtis, daughter of Jonathan Curtis and Mrs. Jonathan Curtis, circa 1787 at Randolph, North Carolina; no marriage record.2 In 1788 he signed a petition urging the General Assembly to establish a new court house building at the Cross Roads.3 Joshua Curtis appeared on the census of 1790 at Randolph, North Carolina, page 303, 1 male under 16, 1 male and 1 female 16 and over.4 Thomas and Joshua Curtis were called as witnesses to the charges that William York, planter, did committ on 7 March 1790 and assault upon one Francis Arnold.5 On 30 March 1792, Joshua swore out a complaint that Benjamin Fuller, son of Brittain Fuller, stole a fox skin from his house.6 On 6 November 1794 the Randolph County Court met and a jury heard the case of Joshua Curtice v. William Hicks, for debt, and awarded damages to Curtice. This suggests that Joshua may have moved to Burke County after his parents sold their land on Caraway Creek.7 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1799 at Burke, North Carolina; no acreage or poll information.8 In the January 1799 Burke County Court session, Joshua Curtice and other inhabitants of North Cove brought a petition for the Great Road from the Cove to be improved and laid out on better ground from Joshua Young's to the double ford above James Ainsworth's mills.9 In the January 1799 session of the Burke County Court, Joshua served on a jury in a dispute and to view and alter the road leading down the North Cove from Joshua Youns to the Double Ford above James Ainsworth's mill.10 In the January 1807 Court Session, Joshua proved a deed between James Reddick to Peter Ledford for 150 acres, dated 8 January 1799. He also served on a jury during the October 1799 session.11 On 8 January 1799 Joshua Curtis purchased land at Burke, North Carolina, 250 acres from Thomas McEntire, acknowledged in open court in the January 1799 session.12 He appeared on the census of 1800 at Burke, North Carolina, page 732, 2 males and 2 females under 10 (Thomas, Joshua, Eleanor, Sarah), 1 male 10-15, (William), 1 male and 1 female 26-44.13 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1800 at Capt. Joseph Dobson's Company, Burke, North Carolina; 388 acres, no polls, which is curious because he was born not earlier than 1766. The authors of the document label this as a pre-1800 census, but it might be later.14 In the October 1801 session of Burke County Court, Joshua Curtis came into open court and proved two wolf scalps agreeable to law. Ordered therefore that he be allowed two pounds under act of assembly.15 He entered land on 23 January 1802 at Burke, North Carolina, 50 acres on west side of Toms Creek, issued 8 December 1802 (from NC Archives records, Burke County, Warrant No. 4321, Grant No. 3155, Book 110, page 60). In the July 1802 session of Burke County Court, Joshua Curtis was ordered to oversee the road from the Pigeon House in the Turkey Cove to the forks of the Catauba River in room of Peter Ledford with the same hands.16 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1805 at Joseph Dobson's Company, Burke, North Carolina; 300 acres, 1 poll.17 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1808 at Captain Dobson's Company, Burke, North Carolina; 300 acres, 1 poll, in same district were Peter, Peter and Ely Ledford, and Jessey Sanders.18 He appeared on the census of 1810 at Burke, North Carolina, page 328, 1 male and 2 females under 10 (Baxter, Mary, Nancy), 1 male and 2 females 10-15 (Joshua, Eleanor, but Sarah married Feb 1810), 1 male 16-25 and 1 female 26-44; either Thomas was present and Joshua was omitted, or Thomas was absent and Joshua was misclassified; Joshua's age has to be 26-44, rather than 16-25, as listed; name is spelled "Curter".19 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1815 at Captain Dobson's District, Burke, North Carolina; 1 poll, 4 tracts lying on or near Toms Creek totaling 388 acres, valued at 515 dollars; Edward and Ely Ledford lived nearby.20 He appeared on the census of 1820 at Burke, North Carolina, page 15, 1 male and 1 female under 10 (John L., unknown daughter), 2 females 10-15, 1 male 18-25 (Baxter), 1 male and 1 female over 45; based on the 1810 census and the ages of Nancy and Mary, the two females should be in the 16-25 bracket, not 10-15.21 The July 1820 Burke County court minutes note that Joshua Curtis was appointed judge for the Back Creek District.22 He appeared on the census of 1830 at Burke, North Carolina, page 188, 1 male 5-9, 2 males 10-14, 1 female 30-39, 1 male 60-69, 1 female 50-59; the younger members of the household do not correspond to the named children; possibly Eleanor was widowed and had moved in with her children.23 On 27 November 1834, Jacob, Josh and Joshua Curtis were listed as purchasers at the estate sale of Peter Stroud, along with William McCurry and many Strouds (pages 116-120 of Burke County Estate Records, 1832-1838). Not clear who Jacob Curtis was.24 He entered land on 23 October 1838 at Garden Creek, Burke, North Carolina, for about $2, described as 39 acres in the County of Burk on the waters of the Catawba river, head of Garden Creek, on the corner of said Curtis' home tract of 100 acres, registered in Raleigh 24 November 1840.25 He appeared on the census of 1840 at North Fork, Catawba River, Burke, North Carolina, page 329, 1 male 10-14, 1 female 20-29, 1 male 70-79, 1 female 60-69; younger members do not correspond to known children.26 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1842 at Pleasant Garden District, McDowell, North Carolina; 488 acres valued at $963, no polls.27 William McCurry, husband of Nancy Curtis, and John L. Curtis were jointly granted 100 acres of land in Burke County (now McDowell) by land grant number 6061 on 6 December 1842. The land was on the waters of Turkey Cove, a mountainous area in northern McDowell County. Edward Williams concluded that the 100 acres awarded to William and Nancy McCurry from Joshua's estate was located just a few miles south of this grant. William McCurry and Allen McCurry, son of John and Rebecca Curtis McCurry, are buried in a family plot on what appeared to be the land they received from Joshua's estate. He noted there were about 25 other graves in the plot, marked only with sandstone rocks. The grave inscriptions mentioned above were legible at the time he viewed them.28 He entered land on 2 August 1843 at Garden Creek, McDowell, North Carolina, for $5, described as 100 acres lying on the waters of Garden Creek of the Catawba River adjacent to the corner of a survey granted to Joshua Curtis, registered 21 November 1844.29 On 20 October 1843, John Autry entered 100 acres of land described as "On the head of Little Buck Creek and the head of some of the branches of (blank) fork of Turkey Cove Creek, including Curtises' Old Bar Pen place on top of the mountain in between." Entry No. 92.30 He appeared on the personal property tax list of 1847 at Marion District, McDowell, North Carolina; 488 acres valued at $1,000, no polls.27 He died in November 1847 at McDowell, North Carolina; probate file opened.31 His estate was probated in 1848 at McDowell, North Carolina; Mary Curtis testified that she had 10 living children. Five Curtis males signed the document, including William, Thomas Esq., John L., Joshua and Baxter. The names of 4 daughters, Eleanor Herring, Connie (Coney) Slate, Nancy E. McCurry, and Polly Bird are found in the McDowell County, NC court minutes. Helen Nuffer was unable to find the name of the fifth daughter.

John S. Erwin, Nathaniel Johnson, John W. Craig and Charles W. Godfrey were appointed Commissioners to lay off the one-year allowance for Mary Curtis on 8 February 1848. Among other things allotted, she received the family bible and hymn book. On 1 November 1848, Thomas Curtis, John L. Curtis, William Curtis and Jason Curtis posted bond related to the estate.

A witness deed was prepared 14 March 1859 (Deed book 2, pp. 251-252) to William and Nancy Curtis McCurry, from the heirs of Joshua Curtis, dec'd for Nancy's share of the estate land, consisting of 100 acres in the vicinity of Thom's Creek and Betsy's branch in McDowell County. Heirs who signed the 1849 deed included B.D. Curtis, J.A. Curtis, Elendor Hering, William Curtis and Thomas Curtis. Another heir, Coney Slate, signed the deed on 11 April 1850, and Joshua Curtis acknowledged her signature, proven in the spring 1851 term of Burke County court.22,31,28 Levi Curtis: I have listed Levi as a son of Caleb; however, Helen Nuffer concluded he was a son of Joshua based on the following information. Levi preceded his father in death, about the same time, and a provision was made for his minor child McDaniel Curtis in the McDowell court minutes. Two other orphan children, Elmira and George, lived with William Curtis in the 1850 census who are not named in William's probate settlement, so they may belong to Levi. [However, I note it appears they may have been in Joshua's household in the 1840 census.] In 1880 "Mack" Curtis was living with Nancy McCurry, Joshua's daughter. The birthdate of George Curtis is in the bible of Mary Pauline Curtis, another daughter of Joshua, and states that George is her nephew. [ Helen concluded there is no basis for assuming Levi was a son of Thomas Curtis, Sr.]22 A letter reviewed by Helen Nuffer, written by Richard Bird Moffit in 1878, states that Thomas Curtis, son of Moses, and Thomas Curtis, son of Joshua, were cousins. Assuming he meant first cousins, then Moses and Joshua were brothers, both sons of Thomas Sr. and Eleanor (Bryant) Curtis.22
