Family of Friend Charles Curtis (1853-1921)
This is Friend Charles Curtis and Mary Catherine Burrill. Standing on the left is their daughter Madge Aramada. Her husband Roy Otis is seated in front of her. Standing in the back, center, is daughter Alta Lovantia. Son Friend William is seated on the right, holding son Bennie. His wife, Nellie Hansen, is standing behind him. Friend and Mary had 3 other children who died as infants. Charles Conrad Curtis lived 2 monts. Beatrice lived a little less than 2 months, and Edith Mae lived 1 week. Sadly, Alta Lovantia, took her own live when she was 18 1/2 years old, so Madge and Friend were the only 2 to have families.
