I posted about 10 years ago in this forum and found myself back here again with a little more information. Part of my original post:
My Grandfather was Lewis Edward Curl b. 13 Sep 1904, resided MI, d. about July 1972 My father is Marvin Lewis Curl and he currently lives in Cupertino, CA. I'm Lewis Kirk Curl, and I also live in Cupertino.
After talking with some family members I have found out the following:
Lewis Edward Curl's father was Charles Curl and died in Indiana or Ohio around 1945.
Joseph Curl B. 1790, place unknown. James Curl B. 1761 may be Joseph's father. Other names; Morris Amos Curl and his father Amos Paisley Curl B. 1830 in Zanesfield, Ohio. There is also an Oscar Curl, brother to Morris.These were taken from some Mormon records my Dad's sister discovered.We're still trying to figure out exactly how they fit in the tree but they appear to be the earliest ancestors of our Curl family line that my family has discovered.
