Virginia "Jennie" Elizabeth Curbow was the daughter of Tilman P. Curbow and Elizabeth Box. She was the granddaughter of William Bolton Box. Virginia was more than likely born in Itawamba County, Mississippi. She came to Texas with her family either shortly before or during the Civil War. On 23 Feb 1869 she married Robert Alexander Story in McLennan County, Texas. They lived their life together in Axtell, McLennan County, Texas. Jennie and her husband had six children; and sadly only her youngest, Frank Edward Story lived to his adulthood. Jennie is laid to rest in Axtell Cemetery with her husband and son. The older headstone was set at the time of her death and the newer (joint) stone was set at the time of her husband's death.
