        "Mr. Curtiss was engaged in merchandising in Newberry until 1839, when he moved to Abbeyville, S.C. In 1842 he was appointed Postmaster at Woodville, S.C., by President Tyler. In 1845 he moved to Eutaw, Alabama, where he engaged in business. He was instrumental in the establishment of Eutaw Lodge I.O.O.F., and was its leading officer. In May, 1851, he joined the gold seekers in California. Following his death the Lodge in Eutaw referred to him as 'one who by his stern integrity, generous sympathy and honorable and upright bearing in all the relations of life, had endeared him to his brethren by ever proving himself worthy of their confidence.'"
