The death of Mrs. C. A. Curtis occurred Friday night at her home in North Broadway in this city after a lingering illness. Carrie Alzina Palmer was born at Elmira, New York, July 7, 1844, and was married at Poynette, Wisconsin, to Wolcott Curtis, on August 8, 1869, and two years later they came to the Gallatin valley, making the trip overland and settled within three miles of Manhattan, where they lived until Mr. Curtis’ death, and then the family moved to town.
Mr. and Mrs. Curtis were truly pioneers and Mrs. Curtis gave of her time and strength in helping neighbors and friends, especially in times of sickness, when pioneers had little but good nursing to depend on for restoration to health.
To Mr. and Mrs. Curtis were born seven children. Those living being Mrs. H. E. (Jessie) Baker of this city; Paul Curtis of Hardin, Mrs. W. L. (Lillian) Halbert of Bereail, Mont.; Jay Curtis of Harbor City, Calif. Another daughter, Mrs. Bob (Sadie) McClellen, died here several years ago, and two sons died in early life, one two years of age and another 14 years. Two sisters also survive, Mrs. Estella Warner of Manhattan, and Mrs. Laura Chapman of Portland.
The funeral services for Mrs. Curtis will be next Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock at the Episcopal Chapel with the Rev. W. H. Mitchell of Townsend, officiating.
