CURTISS, Maria Irene Todd8, (Zerah7, Jehiel6, Stephen5, Stephen4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born June 8, 1831, in Toddsville, N. Y., married at Oriskany Falls, N. Y., Oct. 14, 1851, Samuel Curtiss, who was born Dec. 15, 1824, died Oct. 31, 1870. He was in government employ as master mechanic, building piers in Oswego, N. Y. harbor. One day the government inspector appeared during a heavy wind and wished to examine the piers which were being constructed. So three men started out in a small boat, to see what effect the waves had upon the piers under the light-house. The wind was blowing a perfect gale at the time and the boat became unmanageable and drifted into the breakers between the piers, capsized and Samuel Curtiss was drowned.

II. Julia Almira, b. March 16, 1856, d. 1898.
