  • Name Henry B. Curbow 
    Born Abt 1770  North Carolina Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Approximate date of birth comes from U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules. It is believed - but not proven - that Henry B. Curbow was born in or near Wadesboro, Anson County, North Carolina. If John Curbow is Henry's father, then the family moved in late 1779 to the Abbeville District, South Carolina where John Curbow purchased 300 acres.

    Indexed as Henry Kerbow - he receives a Georgia Headright Land Grant. Each man was eligible for 200 acres plus 50 acres for each wife, child or slave.
    By 1815 Henry had a wife and 4 children (James, Ezekiel, Mahala and Lydia) which would account for 450 acres. In the 1820 he had 2 slaves which if he had those slaves in 1815 would account for the 550 that he received. This is only conjecture and NOT proven.

    Notes 
    • There are two marriage records in Richmond County, Georgia for a Henry Cerbeu. It has not been proven that this is our Henry B. Curbow:
      (1) Elizabeth Mason on 9 May 1817; and
      (2) Nelly Stidman/Steadman on 25 Mar 1818.
      Richmond County, Georgia is across the Savannah River from Edgefield county, South Carolina
      Additionally, Henry Curbow died in Cass County in 1850; when the census was taken that same year there is a Mary "Corbon," living in Cass County with 4 younger "Corbon" children and 2 older "Rumsey" children. Is this a much younger wife of Henry B. Curbow? Or a daughter-in-law? Are these the children of Henry B. Curbow or the grandchildren?
