According to the 1880 US census Saml was 2 years old. I wondered about the Saml B Curl that married in 1889. I realized that he was so young, but in that day and time they married young. John S. Curl was born in 1831, Mississippi. 1st wife Mary E.unknown and 2nd wife Nancy Ann Howard. Don't know when or where they married. They had eight children. John J. born 1846 Mississippi, Mary E. born 1858 Mississippi, William Henry born 1861 Arkansas, Francis E born June 1, 1863 Arkansas, Parthenia A. born Arkansas, Robert E. Lee born Arkansas (grandfather), Permelia A. born 1874 Louisiana, and Saml B. Curl born 1878 LA. I'm new at researching so I have a lot to learn. Any help would be appreciated. The only ones I haven't found are William Henry, Francis E., and Saml B.
