b. 1905 and another child born 1906. When did they die? Where is the
nearest Catholic church to this residence and are those church records
IF you can somehow connect the dots from JUSTUS < VT< in CT to
William from Eng >CT it would be a miracle... There just has to be a
will or bible somewhere. Or the families of their spouses. The

have a history on them.. all we have is ;
JOSEPH STURDEVANT b: 1683 at Norwalk, CT ... Married: MEHITOBLE
ROSCOE POWELL in 1718
JONATHAN STURDEVANT: b: ? Married DEBORAH MOREHOUSE ?
Who are their children? and so on ??
I will post this to the CT FAIRFIELD Co. CTFAIRFI-L(a)rootsweb.com

these other names will come up...
You should join these lists they are GREAT, two of the BEST on the

Hi...I don't know if this helps on Curtis but I have the same situation with
someone not being buried with anyone else.. Keep this in mind...if he died
later than his wife, he may have gone to live with one of his other children
or a brother or sister...or with anyone you may not have considered before.
And some folks went to live in old age homes too...and were buried with no
family nearby. If you have not done so already, check family tree maker, and
ancestry.com and gendex and do a search on the internet with his whole name
and see what you find.
My stone wall is in Sherman, Fairfield Co. CT
Marquis D Curtis ae 48 (may be a lawyer)
John C. son ae 16
Marquis M. Curtis ae 76
All born in NY. Last seen in 1880, Chemung Co. NY
and 1900 Soundex of CT. The elder Marquis may be buried in Fairfield.
He does not show up back in NY with the rest of his family. Rev. Gordon

Does anyone know...........
In 1900 on Middle st. what Peck & Lines stables were?
In 1900 what a hostler was, in connection with Peck & line stables...
Any information on the cable cars in 1900..........
In connection to your question regarding what a hosteler was...the dictionary
lists it as one that lodges guests or strangers. I had suspected as much
because a hostelry was an inn. In some parts a motel is still referred to as
a hostel. Hope that helps.
By the way is there a good source of reference to pinpoint businesses in
Fairfield county through history? My ggrandfather worked at a coal yard in
Norwalk in the late 1800's.
According to the 1900 Soundex CT, there was the following living in
Marquis D Curtis ae 48 b.NY
John C, Curtis son ae 16 NY
Marquis M. Curtis ae 76 NY
I have long searched in the NY records to no avail. But I am certain
this is the family I need. In 1880 the Marquis D was a lawyer.
Can anyone in the area give me a clue as to where to look for a dc of
the oldest Marquis who possibly died in the area. I'm trying to reach
the descendants of this Curtis line. Rev. Gordon H. Curtis
