Amos Curry Passes Away
Wasted for weeks and months by enervating disease and fatigue, he quietly and peacefully passed away at 10:20 on the morning of October 2, 1928, at his home in Madison.
During his long illness-for he had practically been a invalid for years but only confined to his room and bed for the past six months, he was cheerful, for by nature Amos was an optimist and few things worried him. Physically he was a big, strong man and on the Willowcreek farm the nucleus of a competency was layed in a few years that enabled him and his good wife to retire from the farm and move to Madison, buying and remodeling the home where they now live.
A few years later he purchased the 100 acres. Amos was a good mixer, fond of his friends and enjoyed having them around him. He was a Madison Woodman and a charter member of the Madison Knights
of Pythias lodge. The latter had charge of his funeral at the Methodist Church, Friday afternoon, Ocotber 5.
Amos Curry was born at Enfield, Tomkins County, New York, April 18, 1853, and died at his home in Madison, Kansas, on October 2, 1928; aged 75 years, 5 months and 4 days.
He was united in marriage to Miss Dollie Weller, November 16, 1880, at Haldane, Illinois. To this union five children were born, two dying in infancy. He is survived by his wife and three sons: Floyd Curry, Dale Amos Curry and Victor Clair Curry of Garden
