JOB CURTIS
1717-1804

When Job Curtis was born in 1717, even the counties of Virginia were relatively few. He was about 55 years of age when Berkley County was formed. Whether he was born in that locality or not is uncertain, but there is evidence that he lived at least a good portion of his life in Berkley County, Virginia. (When West Virginia was formed in 1863, Berkley County became a part of that state).
Almost one hundred years before Job Curtis was born, the name of Curtis was found among the early Virginia colonists. Thomas Curtis, born about 1599, came to Virginia from England in 1621 on the ship Flying Harte. Also, in the same year, either on the same voyage or another, came John Curtis on the same ship. In 1625 Jo: Curtis, age 21, came to Virginia on the Safety, and William Curtis, age 19, came over on the George. The children of Thomas and Avarilla Curtis were John, Avarilla, Bartholomew, Giles, George, Charles, James and Sarah. What relation any of these were to Job Curtis, if any, is unknown at this time.
In 1730, Morgan Bryan and Alexander Ross, both of Chester County, Pennsylvania, presented a colonization plan to Lieutenant Governor William Gooch of Virginia and his council. They succeeded in getting a grant of several thousand acres south of the Potomac River and west of Opequon Creek, extending to North Mountain. Over the following two years, the government would issue grants and patents to 100 families which the partners believed they could attract. Although some families settled before 1732, the project did not meet the two years deadline, and grants were not issued until November, 1735. During the early settlement of the area, land granting authority was confusing, being from more than one authority. By 1748, Lord Fairfax was in control of all the land in the northern neck of Virginia, and ordered new surveys of land and a new granting system. The confused, mixed, and changing land granting authority resulted in some settlers paying for their land two or three times. Ross established his area in what is now (1997) Fredrick County, Virginia, with Bryan overseeing the area that is in present Berkley County, West Virginia. Later, Morgan Bryan and his wife, Martha (Strode) Bryan, and others of the family moved to North Carolina. Rebecca Bryan, daughter of Joseph Bryan, and granddaughter of Morgan and Martha, married Daniel Boone. Among those who established Bryan's Station, north of present day Lexington, Kentucky, were three or four sons of Morgan Bryan.
Mary Bryan, daughter of Morgan and Martha Bryan, married Thomas Curtis. Among the November, 1735, land grants previously mentioned was one on November 12 to Thomas Curtis for 418 acres in present Berkley County, about two miles above the mouth of Tulissus Branch. Thomas and Mary had a daughter, Mary, who went to North Carolina with her Bryan grandparents. By the time of the North Carolina move, both parents of the younger Mary were deceased and she was left in the care of her Bryan grandparents.
The records of the County Court of Orange County (a parent county of Berkley, formed in 1734, show that in 1741, Mary Curtis was appointed administratrix of her deceased husband's estate and that her father assisted her in this responsibility. Several months after her husband's death, Mary Curtis passed away and her will was probated in Orange County, Virginia on February 25, 1742. Her brother, Joseph Bryan, was named executor, but it appears that her father shared this responsibility. Among the payments made from the estate of Mary Curtis are two that may have direct connection to the Job Curtis family: to Thomas Cordrey (Cordry) , Job's father-in-law; and William Demoss (Job's daughter, Martha, married a Demoss.) While it seems likely that Thomas Curtis was related to Job, no known relationship can be stated at this time. Unless Thomas Curtis was much older than his wife, he would have been too young to have been Job's father. If Thomas was near the age of his wife (born about 1720), then he could have been Job's brother.
Frederick County (a parent county of Berkley) was formed in 1738 and the records of that county show that Job Curtis was in the area at least as early as January 11, 1744, when he was a witness to a transfer of 1,020 acres of land from Morgan Bryan to Joshua Hedges, after whom the town of Hedgesville was named. At the May 1744 term of the Frederick County Court, one of the actions of the Grand Jury was to indict Jonathan Curtis for plowing on Sunday. The next month, at the June term of court, Jonathan Curtis was indicted for writing and publishing several articles against the Established Church. It will be recognized that at this time there was not the measure of freedom of religion which later became part of American fundamental law. A writer referring to this incident refers to Jonathan Curtis as a Quaker, but the evidence for this is unknown to the present writers. This Jonathan was probably not Job's son as Job was about 27 years of age at the time. However, the older Jonathan could have been Job's father or brother, but no definite relationship can be stated at this time
Just when Job Curtis married Mary Cordry is not known, but her father, Thomas Cordry, made his will on March 7, 1763 (See Appendix I) and Job was named one of the executors. In the will of Thomas Cordry are mentioned his wife, Martha (the other executor); sons Thomas Jr. and John Sr.; grandson, John, son of John Sr.; daughters Sidney Cordry and Mary Curtis. The will was produced in the Frederick County Court on March 6, 1764. Apparently Thomas Cordry lived in what is now Berkley County, as an October 8, 1831, deed (See Appendix II) refers to 166 acres of land on Dry Run in Berkley County, being part of a larger tract granted to Thomas Cordry by patent bearing the date October 28, 1757.
From his will, made March 12, 1804, and probated April 24, 1804, in Berkley County, it appears that Job Curtis had at least fourteen children. Whether his wife, Mary was the mother of all of them, or whether Job was previously married, is not known. As named in his will, his children were: Ann Morgan, Rachel Ellis, Thomas Curtis, Jonathan Curtis, James Curtis, Job Curtis, Rebeckah Burris, Edward Curtis, Joshua Curtis, Seth Curtis, Martha DeMoss, David Curtis, Sarah Curtis, and Catharine Curtis.
Job was nearing sixty years of age when the Revolutionary War started. The Virginia Public Claims records show that he and his son Job Jr. assisted in the cause of American independence. The Public Claims are the records of services rendered and supplies provided for the purpose of carrying on the Revolutionary War. In May 1780, the Virginia General Assembly passed an Act for procuring a supply of provisions and other necessaries for the use of the Army. It provides:

"Whereas in the present and alarming and critical situation of the war, with a powerful enemy in the neighboring southern states, it may be indispensably necessary to provide and collect in proper places, with the utmost expedition, large stores of provisions, either to supply our own militia or Continental troops or for supplying the troops sent by our good allies to the assistance of these United States. Be it enacted, by the General Assembly, that the governor with the advice of council, be empowered to appoint commissioners in such counties, within the Commonwealth, as they think necessary for the purpose of carrying this act into execution."
Certificate No. 253 was issued October 24, 1780, certifying that Job Curtis Sr., Job Curtis Jr., and Wm. Anderson supplied a quantity of wheat in accord with the above mentioned Act. Job Curtis died in March or April of 1804 at the age of about 87 years.
