Curfman and Montgomery Families of Huntingdon Cnty

Curfman and Montgomery Families of Huntingdon Cnty

Posted: 1202393401000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Curfman, Montgomery, Smith
I am looking for anyone researching and/or that has these individuals in their family info.

1) Daniel Montgomery m/Annie Curfman, Huntingdon Cnty., PA
Daniel was born c. 1800. Died c. 1850-1852. Annie remained in the Cassville area and died c. 1870-1880 (although, I have found her death date listed as 1859-1860 before, however, she can be found as late 1870.) Annie is a daughter of Jacob Curfman. Daniel and Annie had several children, including a Jacob C. Montgomery. (Have a bio about Jacob that mentions many of his Montgomery family.)

2) John Montgomery b. c. 1794. Married Susan Curfman. Susan was b. c. 1819 in PA. Susan's parent are unknown. Tring to find relationship between Susan Curfman and above Annie Curfman. This John and Daniel are believed to be brothers. John and Susan died in the Mapleton area of Huntingdon, Cnty. John d. c. 1862, Susan aft. 1880. Some of their children include; George W. b. c. 1840, Roseanna b. c. 1831 (may have married a Ewing?), Samuel b. c. 1835, Richard M. b. c. 1838, William b. c. 1840, Walter b. c. 1842, Miller T. b. c. 1853, Catharine A. b. c. 1839, John b. c. 1858, James S. b. c. 1833 may have d. Jul 1909 in Mapleton. Several of John and Susan's above listed children, however, are believed to have died very young and may be buried in the Mapleton or Brady Twnsp. area.

The above John and Daniel are believed to be sons of Richard Montgomery, who was b. in Ireland and likely died btw. 1830-1850. Richard may have lived in Mifflin Cnty., PA during the early 1800's...and I likely found him on the 1820 and 1830 censuses in that county. Additional children of Richard Montgomery include; Isaac, Hugh (both Hugh and Isaac 'went west'...I am tring to connect an Isaac and Hugh William without much doubt...have a lot of coincidental info at this time...if I can find proof positive, I have much more info on Isaac and Hugh and their descendants), Catherine (who married Isaac Smith and eventually moved on to Dickinson Cnty., KS), a Betsy (nothing known of her except that she may have married a couple of times), George (nothing known except he may have went to Iowa and may have worked on a boat or canal), Samuel (nothing known except that he may have moved "west of the Rockies"). Richard may have had a few more children, but they are unknown.

Any additional information on any of these people, families, or descendants is greatly appreciated! I will share what I do have, although it is fairly minimal at this time. Doesn't seem to be an incredible amount out there on this Montgomery family. I do not know at this time how/if they are closely related to other Montgomery's found in the area during the early-mid 1800's.

Also, interested and greatly appreciative of anybody who is willing to take a look in their Huntingdon County sources for any of these people!!! I would like to find burial locations, more precise dates, bios, wills...anything at all!

Thank you!

FINALLY!!!!! Someone else looking at the John Montgomery/Susan Curfman family!!! I'm at work and have no details with me - but can take a look as soon as I have time at home. Would love to compare notes! The Montgomerys have been a stumbling block for me and yes - Susan - can't find a set of parents either. However - I haven't taken a real hard look and need to get local and do some research.

FYI: John Montgomery and Susan Curfman are my GGG-grandparents.

Feel free to contact me directly:

BTW - not sure if you are local or not - but I do have pics of the john montgomery/susan curfman stones (located Mapleton IOOF Cemetery) as well as the son James Montgomery and his wife Martha Corbin - and other Montgomerys as well. Would be glad to scan and share.

I am not researching the Curfman line, but I do have an Isaac Curfman b. 15 Dec. 1812 Near Cassville, PA d. 17 Jun. 1884 Trough Creek Valley, Huntingdon Co, PA

Found on the 1860 PA Census:

Mary, 45
John, 21
Oliver, 19
Catherine, 17
Margaret, 15
Mahala, 13

Surnames: Curfman, Montgomery, Barnett
I believe the dates on Anna (Curfman) Montgomery are 18 Oct 1812-4 June 1870.

I am not directly related to Anna, but to her sister Catherine (Curfman) Barnett.

Can you tell me anything more about this Curfman family? Annie married Daniel Montgomery. Daniel also had a brother, John Montgomery, who married a Susan Curfman. I'm sure Susan fits somewhere into these Curfman's in this same area...but I don't know how. I wondered if she was a sister to Annie, by chance, or a cousin? Do you know who all the siblings are of Annie? I don't have any of them....I guess there was a Catherine? That would make of Annie and Daniel Montgomery's children I believe was named Catherine.

Hi LaDonna,

Here's what I have. Jacob Curfman (1776 in Washington Co., MD - 1860 in Union, Huntingdon, PA) married Elizabeth Snare (1778-1850). They had the following children that I know of--though there may be more:

Daniel Curfman 1799-1870
Catherine (Curfman) Barnett abt. 1800-1877
Jacob Curfman 1804-1860
Anna (Curfman) Montgomery 1812-1870

Don't know anything about Susan.

There's a published Curfman/Kurfman genealogy. I think the author was a Robert Curfman from Colorado, perhaps; haven't looked at it for a good while. It's a hard bound book and traces them back to Germany. Huntingdon County Historical Society may have a copy; perhaps also LDS or a major genealogical library. (I am a Philip Barnett descendant.)

Surnames: Deeder, Curfman, Barnett
I am a descendent of Daniel Curfman and Susannah Barnett via their daughter Sophia who married Issac Deeter. The Deeters along with several of Sophia siblings moved from Huntingdon County to Pike County, IL after Daniel Curfman's death in 1847.

I am researching all branches of the Deeter/Deeder, Curfman, Barnett ancestors and descendents and would like to exchange data.
