BURNHAM/CURTISS

When Hannah Burnham and Jeremiah Curtiss married in 1730, two families were
united who actually had a common ancestor, Robert White. Robert's daughters, Mary
and Anna, married in England and came to America as Mary (Mrs. Joseph) Loomis
and Anna (Mrs. John) Porter. Through the happenstance of birth order, some of their
descendants ended up in different generations and Hannah & Jeremiah were third 
cousins, once removed. These families lived in Connecticut in the early days.

CURTIS/CURTISS

The Rev. Jeremiah Curtiss (see below) was the first pastor of the Congregational Church of 
Southington, CT. He graduated from Yale College in 1725 at the age of 18. From the time he was 4 
years old until age 14, he was under the pastoral supervision of Timothy Cutler, D. D., the 
distinguished scholar who was the second President of Yale College. Jeremiah appeared in 
Southington, coming from Stratford,  CT, at the age of 21, to be a candidate for the pastorship of the Church.
