Mary Elizabeth "Libby" Curtiss: School Teacher in Lima, Allen Co., Ohio all her life. Never married. Daughter of Dr. Elijah Curtiss & Flora Hanchett-Curtiss....sister to Dr. Charles Curtiss.
Dwight Edgar Curtiss, Sr, taken in Germany at the German Air Base where Dwight Edgar Curtiss was stationed. He was Army Air Corp and was in Germany right as the war ended, so 1945/46 is our guess. He was in charge of the occupied air field, and talked about how they had to destroy the German planes by pulling them apart with tanks and cables. He talked about how the bombed buildings still had corpses in them and the smell from them. Also, how Dwight would take extra bread and butter and give it to the Germans who would grab scraps of food as the US soldiers were cleaning off their plates after eating; starving Germans.
Dr. Elijah Curtiss born 1812, father of Dr. Charles Curtiss. Both practiced medicine in Lima, Ohio.
CHARLES Curtiss, a doctor, the son of Dr. Elijah Curtiss. Birth June 21, 1850 in Ohio. Death March 3, 1895 in Lima, Allen, Ohio
