I have Michael and Rebecca (Tolbert) Curts' family bible which lists the family as follows:
"Michael A. Curts was married to Rebecca Tolbert Sept 11, 1850" [Note: the marriage records of Butler Co. OH say "15 Sept 1851"]

"Rebecca Talbert (sic) was born July 1824" [This on a separate slip of paper - may have been inserted because she gave different ages in every census.]

"F.M. Curts, [born] Jan 10, 1848
M.A. Curts, June 11, 1851
C.A. Curts, July 16, 1853
R.A. Curts, Sept 11, 1857
J.R. Curts, May 27, 1860
G.E. Curts, May 27, 1860
W.C. Curts, May 20, 1863 [On another page listing the same children, he is called "C.W."]

A letter to me, written in the 1960's by Mrs. Ocalla Fugate Bishell, daughter of Mary Ann Curts Fugate, lists "Mother's brothers and sisters" as:

Francis Marion - never married (male)
Charles - married Betty, 1 boy, 1 girl died young
George - bachelor
John (twin to George) - married, no children
Clark - married - 2 children, 1 girl, 1 boy
Rhoda - married Bud Harrison, 3 boys, 2 girls

Ocalla was born in 1888 and remembered her Curts grandparents very well.

I hope this helps someone - e-mail me if you are "family" and want more on Michael and Rebecca.
