        "Joseph Curtiss was one of the owners of unsubdivided lands herein before mentioned. According to Orcutt's History of Stratford, he 'was among the most prominent citizens of Stratford for many years.' He was town clerk fifty consecutive years and did the work in a manner creditable to himself and the town. He always wrote the name 'Curtiss' with the double 's,' as did most of the descendants of William Curtiss, whereas many of the descendants of John have spelled the name with only one 's.' Joseph was elected an Assistant, an office now called Senator, of the State in May, 1698, and thereafter for twenty-two consecutive years. He was several times elected Judge of the County Court, and served on several State Committees of first importance, including one to locate the boundary line between Connecticut and New York, as settled by the authorities in 1700. In October, 1709, Capt. Joseph Curtiss, with the Deputy Governor and three others, was appointed as a Committee of War for the County of Fairfield. He was lieutenant in the town band and was a representative from Stratford for a number of years. He was also very prominent in church work. He was contemporary with his father, John, for thirty years, and with his uncle William for fifty years, and was authority with reference to family matters and data. In 1727 he declined further public service and died shortly thereafter. For many years his descendants gloried in the honorable title applied to him while living, 'The Worshipful Joseph Curtiss.'"
