James W. Curtis, and esteemed citizen of Waterford died December 3 of consumption. Mr. Curtis was born in Charleston, Vt. In 1833, and has been a resident of Waterford for thirty years. He had followed the vocations of merchant, shoemaker, and farmer, the last number of years being devoted strictly to farming.

He was in the service one year in the war of the Union, as a member of Co. K., 15th Vermont Volunteers, and had served the town acceptably in several important offices.

During the greater part of his lingering illness he had been attended by his sister, Mrs. Huntley, who, with his only surviving son, John E, Curtis, has the sympathy of the community. At the time of the revival in 1875, Mr. Curtis became interested in religious matters and united with the Lower Waterford Congregational Church. The Christian faith smoothed his was during a long and trying illness down through the shadow.

The funeral was held on Sunday and conducted by Rev. George Roger. About 40 members of Chamberlin Post, of which Mr. Curtis was a member, went over to St. Johnsbury to the funeral.

The Caledonian, December 10, 1891
