Family of James CURTIS and Nancy BYRKIT
James CURTIS b. 1807 Nov 18?2902 at Ohio2902. d. 1873 Jan 12840 at prob Indiana840. bd. Noffsinger Cem., Elkhart Co., IN840.
Nancy BYRKIT b. 1811 Sep 16840 at Ohio2902. d. 1890 Jan 13840 at prob Indiana840. bd. Noffsinger Cem., Elkhart Co., IN840.
Married2902 1829 Sep 112033 at Miami Co., OH2033. James and Nancy Curtis, apparently husband and wife, appear in 1850 census2902 in Penn Twp, St Joseph Co., IN. They are listed as both born Ohio, and their oldest child, William, was age 20, born Ohio, which indicates they may have been married ~1829. Considering the names, birth places, and approximate marriage date, it is possible that William Curtis' parents in that census are the James Curtis and Nancy Byrkett who were married Sep 11, 1829, in Miami, OH, by John B Kester, J. P.
The image of James' tombstone840 appears to list his death date as Jan 12, 1878 (or 1873?). James' age at death isn't entirely clear, but appears to be "70Y's 1[?]M & 25[6?] D's." From that information, his birthdate may be Nov 18, 1807. His birthdate is calculated from that information.
Nancy's maiden name appears as Byrkett and Byket in the marriage record2033 for James Curtis and Nancy. The death certificate4633 of Mrs Ellen (Curtis) Darr lists her parents as James Curtis, born Ohio, and Nancy Byrkit, born Ohio. The informant for that information was Horace F Curtis of Osceola, Ind., Ellen's brother and the son of James and Nancy Curtis. Mary E Curtis (assumed to be Mary Ellen) and Horace Curtis (appearing as Frank, Franklin, and Horace F in various records) appear in census records associated with James and Nancy, and with each other.
Nancy died840 at the age of "78Y's, 3M's, & 28D's." Her birth date is calculated from that information.
