NOTE: In the 1980's before Great Aunt Myrts death she gave Bunny genealogy information. That information is what we used as a starting point in our reseach. The following is some of what Bunny was told, we have only been able to verify some of it:

JOHN ?(or FRANK) CURTIS
---------------------
HULDA MEAD
---2nd Husband DYKEMAN
|
-------------------------
---------------------
---------------------
-------------------------
|
|
|
|
DELOS CORNELL
FRANK DECKER
HENRY WATSON
TOM CURTIS
|
EARL
The boys took the last name of the farmer they were farmed out to.(common in those days). Hulda Mead lived until the early 1900's. Tom Curtis was slim and good looking and Great Aunt Myrte had met him. She said he was in the Spanish-American War and stationed in Key West. Also, Maria disowned her son George (we don't know why).
