HeritageQuest has Curd Family History, The Curd and allied families. He was the son of William Curd (Newton, John, Thomas, Joseph) and Lucinda Coghill. He appears to be the seventh and youngest child. His brothers and sisters were: Ann Voris, Elizabeth Bradshaw, William, Jr., Thomas J., Newton S., and Littleton of Gowar, Mo. in 1915. His grandfather, Newton, was surveyor and founded the little town of Curdsville, Ky., on the Green River.
Death date June 10. Grave is among men who were KIA on June 15 - 16. Seems out of place, but then there were few casualties in the time period between the battle of New Hope Church / Dallas that ended c. June 1 and battle of Gilgal Church on June 15. Graves to the left are 23rd Army Corps (Schofield), 2nd Div. (Hascall). The next grave, H-8754, begins a series of graves of 20th Army Corps (Hooker), 3rd Div. (Butterfield).
