George's death certificate
GEORGE W. CURTIS.
George W. Curtis is now living in Logan but for a long period was actively identified with farming interests in Cache county and through his industry along this and other lines he acquired a competence that now enables him to rest from further labor. He was born in Payson, Utah, January 30, 1854, a son of George and Emma (Whaley) Curtis.
George W. Curtis whose name introduces this review attended the schools of Payson, but the educational system was but slightly developed at that period. When a lad of seventeen years he took up the work of freighting from Salt Lake and Sandy to Pioche, Nevada. He also went with the first soldiers to Beaver, Utah, driving a six-mule team, and he continued in the freighting business for six years. During that period he likewise worked on the home ranch and in 1877 h£ entered the employ of the Ontario Silver Mining Company, working in its mill until December 28, 1897, or for a period of twenty years. In 1898 he began farming at Newton, where he resided until 1915, when he sold the property and removed to Logan, where he now occupies a large and beautiful modern residence.
In 1880 Mr. Curtis was married to Miss Permelia Haws, a daughter of Nathaniel and Lucinda (Crockett) Haws, who were natives of Maine. Mr. and Mrs. Curtis became parents of three children: Dr. George Nathaniel Curtis, of Salt Lake; Emma L., now the wife of Dr. D. K. Allen, also of Salt Lake; and Zeeta.
While connected with agricultural interests Mr. Curtis devoted his attention to general farming, producing diversified crops. He is now resting from further labors but is a stockholder in the Farmers Banking Company of Cache Junction. He was elected to the city council of Forks city to fill out an unexpired term of six months but otherwise has not held public office. While at Newton he was ordained a member of the Seventy. There is practically no phase of the development and settlement of the west with which he is not familiar and the work instituted by his father in the upbuilding of Utah and the reclamation of its arid lands has been continued by him and throughout his entire life he has followed constructive methods in the conduct of his business interests and is now the possessor of a handsome competence as the reward of his labors.
