I may be able to help you with some information. I believe we may be cousins
of some sort. Does your Ellis Curtis have a June Curtis somewhere in his
line? I believe my great grandfather Alvin Curtis had a brother named Ellis.
Alvin was a son of Samuel Thomas Curtis and Sarah Elizabeth Wood.
Here is a bit of what I have, I will just list our direct line but I do have
much more information if interested:

abt. 1758 in VA and d. abt. 1850 in Monroe Co, KY. Charity was buried at
Gamaliel Cemetery, Gamaliel, Monroe Co, KY. Fielding was buried in Barren
Co, KY at an unknown cemetery. I obtained the burial information about
Fielding from an online list of names from a book called 'Barren Co,
Kentucky's Military Hall Of Fame, Volume 1, (c) 1995.
Fielding Curtis, JR, was b. bet. 1784-1789 in Union Co, SC and d. bet.
