  • Name Henry B. Curbow 
    Born 1817  Georgia Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • PLEASE NOTE: Regarding the parentage of Henry B. Curbow - Based on various records (census) and the close proximity of the families and the shared name: I logically THINK that the father of Henry B. Curbow is Henry B. Curbow (of Georgia 1770-1850). HOWEVER, I have nothing definitive to tie them together at this point. PLEASE DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND COME TO YOUR OWN CONCLUSION.
      Date/location of birth are from 1850 census. If Henry B. Curbow is the father, we know that Henry was present in Jackson County, Georgia during the time period.

    According to the United States Official Postal Guide, Page 207 written by Eli Bowen - Henry B. Curbow was the postmaster for Paraclifta, Sevier County, Arkansas for 1851. Sevier County is near Ouchita County, Arkansas where Tilman Curbow was in 1860 and Bowie County, Texas where Wiseman Curbow was in 1850 and where Henry Curbow, Sr. died in Cass County in 1850.
    Paraclifta was the first county seat of Sevier County. It dates back to at least to the late 1820s. A post office was established there in 1830. An 1850 plat shows fifteen families living in Paraclifta. At this time, however, only the historic Gilliam-Norwood house remains.

    • Date/location of marriage are from Arkansas Marriages to 1850; further confirmed by U.S. and International Marriage Records
    Notes 
    • Even though sons James and Riley were enumerated as Curbow - I think it is possible that these may be Catherine's children from a prior marriage. I have been unable to locate any records for James Curbow or Riley Curbow.
