Sunday's Obituary: Thomas Curtis

Alexandria Gazette
3 April 1856

DIED, at Occoquan, in Prince William county, Va., on the night of the 29th ultimo, THOMAS CURTIS, aged 76 years.  The deceased was, and had been, a member of the Baptist Church for the last half century or more of his life; during which his walk and conversation corresponded in an eminent degree with his profession. Nature expired and vitality passed away -- calmly and serenely.  Such is the end of the good and just man.  Let us imitate his life, that ours may end like his.
