Curtis, ---- -- Tuesday.  The three-months-old child of Sanford Curtis, who resides on West Fourth Street, died yesterday afternoon.  The funeral will take place from the family residence tomorrow at 1 o'clock p.m.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  23 July 1892]

Curtis, Albert -- We have never had such a painful duty as the one we now perform in giving our readers the particulars, so far as we have them, of the death of Albert Curtis, the noble son of Judge A.L. Curtis.  We do not write as a simple news chronicler;  for the deceased was our schoolmate and friend for many years.  We are not writing to unsympathizing strangers;  for all of the boys that have grown up to manhood here and then gone forth to make for themselves a home name, Albert Curtis was the most highly esteemed and the most generally beloved.  The first news of his death came last Monday morning.  The telegrams were dated June 24, and simply stated that Albert Curtis had been shot and instantly killed at 4 o'clock P.M. of that day.  A dispatch in Monday's Leader stated that Curtis had been shot by a man named Chandler, the result of a difficulty about some land.  Since then no further particulars have been received by his family.  The following dispatch was in yesterday's Herald, and contains the most complete information yet received:  Cheyenne, June 27.  The following are the particulars of the murder of Albert Curtis.  After threatening Curtis, and receiving in reply, "Oh no, you wouldn't shoot any one," Chandler knelt down, took deliberate aim and fired, killing Curtis almost instantly, Chandler afterwards entered his house and loaded his shot gun and revolver, determined not to be taken alive, and then swallowed a dose of powdered opium.  By this time the house was surrounded by armed men.  They watched some time, and finally ventured cautiously in, and found the murderer in an insensible condition.  Efforts to revive him were unsuccessful and he died at two o'clock next morning.  From the meager facts we gather that a difficulty had arisen between Albert and Chandler respecting some land.  Such a difficulty could easily arise in a country where there are no fences, and thousands of acres are used by grazers.  That Albert Curtis quietly but firmly maintained what he believed to be his rights, giving no occasion for even an oath to be hurled at hime, there is not the slightest doubt.  When in Laramie a few weeks since we were delighted to hear on every hand words of warmest praise for our friend.  His body left Omaha yesterday afternoon, and is expected Friday morning at 5:18.  The time of the funeral will not be decided until the body arrives.  It is the wish of his friends to kip him one day, if possible.  The whole community is sorrow stricken, and deeply sympathize with the almost heart-broken parents, sister and brothers.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  08 July 1876 as reprinted from the Ashland (OH) Times]
