  • Name Lydia Curbow 
    Born Yes, date unknown 
    • PLEASE NOTE: Regarding the parentage of Lydia Curbow - Based on various records (census and a real estate transaction) and the close proximity of the families: I logically THINK that the father of Lydia Curbow could be Henry B. Curbow (of Georgia 1770-1850). HOWEVER, I have nothing definitive to tie Lydia Curbow to Henry Curbow at this point. PLEASE DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND COME TO YOUR OWN CONCLUSION.

      Most of the public member trees on ancestry.com indicate that Lydia was born about 1813 in Fayette County, Georgia; however, I do not have a source for this. If she is in fact the daughter of Henry B. Curbow - we know that Henry was present in in Jackson County, Georgia as early as 1809 and as late as 1816.
      The census records for Lydia indicate:
      1840 census - she would have been born between 1811-1820.
      1850 census - born abt 1813 in Georgia
      1870 census - born abt 1810 in Georgia

    Notes 
    • Notes from Barbara Sam:
      The names and birthdates for the children of Lodric and Lydia were found recorded in the handwriting of Ethel Ozella Pilgrim McKee, among her papers following her death in 2001 by her daughter Maxine McKee Ard. These were recorded on a Birdge score pad with the advertisement of Chesterfield cigarettes and believe this dates back to 1930s/1940s. Notarized paper by Lydia Strickland Smallwood about uncle who went to war - Gates, who I believe is Horatio Gates Strickland, names her father James Lodric Strickland.
