Edmund Curd was born in Jessamine County, and from there removed to Hardin County, Ohio, where he remained a few years, and then came to this township, arriving here in 1836, and entered into partnership in the saddlery business with John R. Jeffries, who had come to this place a short time previous. For more than 30 years, he continued in this business. His grandfather removed to Kentucky from Virginia at an early day, and settled on the Kentucky River where the Southern Railroad now crosses it.
