Frederick "Ted" Curtiss with his brother, standing to his left, Alan Foster Curtiss.

"Your grandfather and my dad were very bright men. They owned a machine shop in Nameoki and built speed boats. They invented a special clutch for boats. They also built a race car that won a few races. A guy named Harry Parker
drove it. One of the boats had a huge Spanish airplane motor in it. The motor used so much gas that they took it out later. I have a picture of it.They also both played two or three musical instruments. They had patents at
the can company. My dad built a machine that you put in a nickel and an icecream bar came out. I think that most of their stuff was way ahead their time." (Richard Curtiss)
