In the 1890's the Underwood's came to Marble Township and settled in the Beaudry Community. One of the two sons, Curtis, was in his teens. The homestead was in the area now known as Cortez Golf Course. A few years later in 1898, Curtis died of rabies at the age of 19, and was buried near his home. This grave is now in the middle of Cortez Road just outside the entrance of the Golf Course. When Cortez road was built, it was built so that you traveled on either side of the grave. It is the only grave at this site.
The site was preserved by the Cooper Communities, INC. when Hot Springs Village was surveyed & developed.
In March 2002 the fence was added to the Curtis Underwood Burial Site. There was also a nice plaque added, some of the information on the plaque was incorrect.
In the Spring of 1979, Mr. & Mrs. Loyd Stephens, Village residents, donated a headstone & had it placed on the grave to permanently mark the site.
