I've researched the CURLEE line trying to find RANDOLPH CURLEE since Nov. 1979. I guess everyone has at least one family in their research that just cannot be found or proven, and the CURLEE line is mine. They didn't leave many trails to follow, few documents, have been elusive on some census reports, marriage records, Civil War records, etc.
The Randolph Curlee I have proven to be mine was in Jackson Parish, LA in the 1870 census, then moved to Shelby Co. Texas, and found in the 1880 census. In both he stated he was born in Georgia.
I assume Randolph Curlee and Lucinda Davis were married in 1860 in Union Parish, LA, after the census was taken, since that is where Lucinda was living, and 9 of her 13 siblings marriages are recorded there, but they were not listed in the marriages of any courthouse I have visited.
After 20 years of assuming Edom R. Curlee was
possibly Randolph, on another trip to Louisiana August 16-21, 1999, new found
documents still don't confirm them to be one and the same, even though they
are the same age, both from Georgia, and both ended up in Jackson Parish,
Louisiana. When I find one, I can't find the other. I turned
5 Louisiana courthouses (Union-Lincoln-Jackson-Winn-Grant Parish) and several
libraries upside down and can't find any other documents about a connection
between Edom R./Randolph. At every courthouse I learned that most of
them had burned in the late 1800's.
On March 30, 2002, a new revelation shows that Edom R's mother was Mary Curlee, and he was a brother to Lovick Curlee.
Randolph's wife, Lucinda Davis, was in Butler Co. AL in the 1830 and 1840 census, then she and her family moved to Mer Rouge, LA, then to Ashley Co. AR and found in the 1850 census there, then by 1860 were in Union Parish LA. I have found Land documents of Randolph M. Curlee in Union Parish, Louisiana.
I found "a" Randolph Curlee with his parents, William and Amy Curlee, from South Carolina, in the 1850 Coosa Co Alabama census, thanks to Kay Kennemore. Who was William Curlee's father? Does anyone have this William in their family and know who his parents are? I am doubtful that this Randolph is mine since my Randolph had stated twice that he was born in Georgia.
I have most of the Curlee's in North Carolina, and now wonder if the Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina Curlee's are connected in any way.
Many years ago Tom Scott and I worked together on our Curlee's but never connected them.
As I have found other CURLEE and name variations in census reports, indexes and soundexes, Indian War, Mexican War and Civil War Lists, they are being listed on this page in hope they will help someone else. Other Curlee researchers are now listed also.
If you have a Randolph Curlee or Edom R. Curlee in your line or found one while searching, Please contact me.
