Online Curtis family reunion

Let's have an online reunion for the descendants of Benjamin and Sarah Curtis! They had 10 children who were born between 1852 and 1873. One child died young and another did not have any children. That leaves 8 children with possible descendants. Which one of the 8 children do you descend from?
  1. Cyrus Jerome Curtis (1852-1922)
  2. Friend Charles Curtis (1853-1921)
  3. Sarah Ellenor Curtis (1856-1933)
  4. Oscar Benjamin Curtis (1858-1921)
  5. Cora Belle Curtis married but did not have any children
  6. George Leslie Curtis (1863-1931)
  7. William Rushmer Curtis (1866-1938)
  8. John J. Curtis died young
  9. Mary Lavantia Curtis (1871-1958)
  10. DeWilton Emory Curtis (1873-1952)
Spread the word about the online reunion. We can plan a date and time, but first let's find as many descendants as we can by commenting on this post to the blog.

My connection is through my father William > his mother Ada Curtis > William Rushmer Curtis > Benjamin Kingman Curtis

I am Janeen Littece Wilber, great-granddaughter of William Rushmer Curtis through his daughter and my maternal grandmother, Florence Albertha Curtis. Both my mother Ella Josephine Brown and my aunt Gladys have told me that we have Native American blood. I am not sure if this is through the Curtis line or not. Does anyone have any information regarding this?

Hi Janeen, I'm also a great-granddaughter of William Rushmer Curtis and through his daughter Ada (sister of Florence). I've also heard the Curtis family had Native American blood in their line, but so far nothing in the genealogy supports that. The family story I heard was that the dark hair that was so prominent in the men was they reason they thought there was Native American blood. Benjamin was married to Sarah Lavantia Card and her ancestors are well known and documented, all entirely without Native American blood. So the story must be coming from the Curtis side of the family. Until we can identify Benjamin's parents, there is no way to verify the family story.

Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
