Curtis of Kentucky

Query by triflerose

Searching for the parents of Henry Curtis was born about 1840 probably in Kentucky.

Two men on horseback brought Henry to the home of Hiram and Mary Ann Purvis and wanted to leave him for a little while. These men were to come back and pick him up but never did. Hiram and Mary Ann raised Henry.Years later an old man in Lewis County told Hobart Curtis, Henry's grandson, that Henry's father was a white boy and his mother was an Indian girl and neither family wanted him. Henry was approximately six or seven years old when the men left him at the Purvis' home.
When he was grown (1862) Henry married the Purvis' daughter, Martha Ann, and they had seven or eight children.
He died in 1910 in Rowan, Kentucky, at the age of 70, and was buried there.
