In Reply to: Joseph Green Curington 1839 - 18xx Georgia, Texas by Robert W. Curington of 18

Hi Robert,

Yes, I agree with Mary's conclusions.

Here are the listings for the 1860 Covington County, Alabama census.

Curington Joseph G. 20       M       W       GA AL COVINGTON 1860
       Rebecca A. 24 F       W       MS AL
       Mary C. 2       F       W       AL AL
       Albert 6/12       M       W       AL AL

Curington Albert 45       M       W       GA AL
       Louanna 50       F       W       GA AL
       Marion J. 18        M       W       GA AL
       William T. 13       M       W       GA AL
       Louanna U. 9        F       W       GA AL
       George Ann A 7        F       W       AL AL

Curington Dock        27       M       W       GA AL COVINGTON 1860
       Virginia 24       F       W       GA AL
       Madora 4       F       W       AL AL
       Lucinda A. 6/12       F       W       AL AL

Let's see what else...there is an Upson County, GA marriage record for Albert Cureton to Lovana (or Louana) Pye November 11, 1835.
Other Cureton marriage records in Upson are:
Cureton, Anna A.        Bryant Jernigan       12/19/1841
Cureton, Sarah              James H. Jones              5/9/1847

Albert Cureton is listed as head of household in the 1850 Upson Co, GA census.
Cureton, Albert 34 M GA
Susanna 40 GA
Joseph G. 11 GA
Marion J. 8 GA
William ?. 4? GA
Susanna 1 GA
Elizabeth 62 GA

There are also listings for a James Cureton age 52 & family in the 1850 & 1860 Upson County census (age 55). (His wife's name is Phebe, so I'll go ahead & mention there is a marriage record in Hancock Co., GA for a Cureton, James & Phebe Patterson 12 Aug 1813)
& listings for a Hannah, James, & William Cureton in the 1830 Upson Co. census.

I have a couple of questions for you.
(1) How did you ascertain that Joseph Green Curington was born in Houston County, Georgia?
(2) Do you have any idea how he might have gotten the middle name of Green?

I have been able to trace my line of Curingtons/Curetons to Talbot County, GA, a neighboring (SW) county to Upson.
My ggg-grandfather John Cureton (Curington in later Alabama censuses) b. 1814 m. Martha Ann Emerson 1839 in Talbot Co. He appears in the 1840 Talbot Co, GA census next to William & J. Green Cureton. Dickson & James Cureton are also listed in the 1840 Talbot Co., census. Can't connect them to earlier documented lines of Curetons.

Hope this helps,
