Birth: Sep. 14, 1829
Howard County
Missouri, USA
Death: Feb. 23, 1903
Missoula County
Montana, USA

David Irwin Curtis was the son of Enoch Curtis and Celia Catherine Anderson. He married Sarah Isaacks on February 22, 1848 in Chariton County, Missouri. After Sarah's death, he married Martha Beller on January 18, 1855 in Linn County, Missouri.

"The remains of David Irwin Curtis, who died at Missoula, Montana, arrived here Wednesday morning of last week and after the funeral services, were interred at New Garden Cemetery.

Five sons: Frank, Will, Tom and James of Brookfield and Charley of Central America and four daughters: Mrs. Mary Wilson of New York, Mrs. Katie Waldon and Mrs. Flora Garrahan of Missoula, Montana and Mrs. Mattie Lambert of Brookfield, survive him.

He was a quiet, even-tempered and kindly man. One who would most like to do good, for the sake of doing good, and who would bear his own grief and misfortune with patience and resignation. It was our pleasure to know him personally, and to us he was always the same kindly man. Not given to many words, he chose the best with which to frame his speech. Not only did we never hear him speak ill of another, but it would require a stretch of the imagination to even suppose he would condescend to such a thing. Those who have known the deceased longest speak the loudest in his praise.

His life on earth hath completed its circle. The result is in the care of one who doeth all things well. Let the sons and daughters and grandchildren rejoice in the memory of a good man."
