I ended up getting a little confused because there are two Curtis brothers that were both preachers. Albert L. and A. J. Lyda Curtis.

History of Roane County, West Virginia page 496

Albert Lee, December 10, 1854; first hom at Wolf Summit, Harrison County.

A. J. Lyda Curtis, son of Captain W. W. and Rebecca, was born March 14, 1861; married Miss Sarah R. Parks May 7, 1891. His age 30, hers 28.

Albert Lee and A. J. Lyda both became popular preachers of the Methodist Episcopal conference. A. J. L. returns to Roane occasionally on business or to visit his relatives.

I have found no 1900 census record for Albert Curtis in
Marion County. There is a Marion County Marriage Record for Albert L. Curtis. Married Luella C. Wallace on 10-04-1883. She was born in Marion County on 06-16-1862 to William and Martha Wallace. He is 28, from Lewis County, and a M.E. Church minister of the gospel. She is 21 and from Marion County.

For brother A. J. Lyda I have the following:
