Ruth (Stratton) Curtis - Zodiac Community
I have some corrections for you and some additional information. Household #248: Ruth (Stratton) Curtis is the widow of Jeremiah Curtis. He died on the way to Texas. The first child listed should be Jeremiah (Jr.). Stephen and Ely Curtis are sons of Jacob Curtis, brother to Jeremiah. Eli died in Stockton, CA in a Mental Hospital, he never married. Stephen married Mary Eldredge (Household #252), had 8 children, died in Visalia, CA 1896. Household 250: should be Meacham Curtis, a son of Jeremiah. He and Emeline are both buried at Mormon Mill Cemetery, Burnet County, TX. Household #251 William Curtis is another son of Jeremiah Curtis. He and Mary Henrietta Forsig were married 12 Sep 1850 in Gillespie County. They later moved to Riverside, CA. Household #252: William Picket Eldredge died later in 1850, the Bible says in Travis County, but I think he may be buried at the cemetery you mentioned on Carl Schmidzinsky's farm. His son, Joseph, died in 1851 in Burnet County, so they may have moved there sooner than the records show. The 4th child should be Harriet Eliza. She died in childbirth in Visalia, CA in 1866. Elvira and the mother, Nancy, died within nine days of each other near Visalia in 1861. I don't know much about William Moroni. He seems to have disappeared from the California records, but may be the one who moved back to Texas in the 1880 Census. Household #270: Eliza Bird is a daughter of Jeremiah Curtis. Another daughter, Mary, should be listed in the Census, but I don't find her. She married Ornon Houghton.
I will be taking a trip back to Texas the last of September. Do you think it would be possible to get into the cemetery that you mentioned on Carl Schmidzinsky's farm?  My son and daughter-in-law will be with me. I would like to see if William Eldredge is buried there. He is my great great grandfather.
I hope that this has helped you correct some of the information.
