Family of William COLWELL and Laura CURTIS
William COLWELL b. 1833~2902 at Painesville, OH4979. d. aft 1880.
Laura CURTIS b. 1834~5226 at Twinsburg, OH4979.
Married2072 1852 Oct 282072 at St Joseph Co., IN2072. William Caldwell, Jr, and Laura Curtis were married2072 by Ezra Maynard, Minister of the Gospel. Their marriage license was dated Oct 27, 1852.
That the William Caldwell and Laura Curtis of that record2072 are the children of the parents identified in their profiles herein is circumstantial but very likely, as both resided in the same township in 1850; William's father was named William as indicated by the "Jr" suffix in the record; and their ages and birthplaces are consistent with the 1850 census - assuming (circumstantial) that Laura Curtis of this record is the Laura Curits, age 16, born Ohio, who appears2902 in the household of M A and Mary Curtis in Penn Township, St Joseph Co., Inidana, in the 1850 census.
William appears in records variously as Colwell, Calwell, Caldwell, etc.
Daughter Nellie's death certificate4979 lists his birthplace as Painseville, OH.
The 1887 obituary5228 for Major Andre Curtis mentions surviving daughter Mrs Laura Caldwell of Elkhart. Other survivors mentioned match the names appearing in the family of M A Curtis in the 1850 census2902: Caroline (Curtis) Crocker, Mary Ann (Curtis) Newman, and Luther Curtis.
Daughter Nellie's death certificate4979 lists Laura's birthplace as Twinsburg, OH.
