WEll, this was bugging me: A L Curtis.Since she was living in Vancouver, B.C in 1933 and her daughter, Mary was living in Seattle in 1930, I went looking to see if she was living with the daughters family in that area at any time.Imagine my surprise when I found her and William still married and living in Seattle in 1910 at 813 Eighth Ave.
U.S. Federal Census: Washington, King, Seattle City, Enumeration District 110, Sheet 13A, 3 May 1910
Curtis, William, 39, first marriage, married 16 years, born New York, Father born England, Mother born New York, can read and write, butcher, works in a shop, had not been unemployed during previous year, rents home
Agnes L,wife, 34, first marriage, marrried 16 years, 3 children born, 3 living, born Penn, Father born Ireland, Mother born Ireland, can read and write
Mary, daughter, 15, born Nebraska, Fa: New York, MO: Penn, can read,write and attends school
William F, son, 13, born Nebraska, FA: New York, Mo: Penn, can read and write and attends school
Anna, daughter, 11, born Nebraska, FA: New York, Mo: Penn, can read and write and attends school
So.....William had not left her as of 1910
Now, on to 1920 and see if we can find her............
