William Walker Curtis - 2nd Lieutenant   
My third great-grandfather, William Walker Curtis was KIA at Battle of New Creek, WV on 4 August 1864.

'William Walker Curtis did not live in Roane County for a long time as his life was cut short by the Civil War; but during the time he lived here, he was well-respected and ran a large, prosperous farm. His friend, James Riddle, named the Curtis District for William Walker Curtis while he was serving the Union Forces; the district had once been a part of Kanawha County, Jackson County and finally became Roane County in 1863.

William Walker Curtis was born in Lewis County (W)VA on 29 August 1832, the son of John and Prudence (Cutright) Curtis. On 18 March 1850, he married Rebecca Wetzel also of Lewis County, the daughter of David F. and Regina (Fultz/Foltz) Wetzel. In Hardesty's book, Mrs. Curtis maintained that she was a direct relative of Lewis Wetzel, the famed Indian fighter. The William Curtises lived in Lewis County for the first few years of their marriage and then settled on the Upper Reedy Creek area of Roane County where they raised their large family.

On 22 August 1862, Curtis enlisted in the army as a member of Company F, 11th Regiment of Virginia Infantry. He was promoted from ranks to sergeant within a week and then to Lieutenant on March 7, 1863. He was taken prisoner by the Confederates, but exchanged and reported for duty once more. He was killed in action at the battle of New Creek, West Virginia, and buried at Ravenswood, Jackson County, West Virginia, where his grave lies unmarked and forgotten.' (Roane County History 1989)

Note: I have since located his grave and obtained a military marker for it.
