Thomas and Sophia Curiston are a part of my family tree. There are a couple of different spellings of the last name: in the 1880 Fed Census of Lapeer, MI you wil find it spelled Curston. Other spellings include Curriston. Thomas as a civil war veteran, served Co. E, 41st Reg. NY Infantry. They can be found in the Lapeer area in the 1900 and 1910 census. Thomas and Sophia married in NY State about 1870. For Sophia, is was her second marriage. I believe a daughter from his first marriage is my Great Grand Mother; Nancy Jane Bradshaw (nee Roe?/ Curiston). I have been unable to locate their presence in NY, and do not know Sophia's first husband. In two census, Sophia is said to have 10 and 11 children, 9 living. I suspect that is from the two different marriages. Any help you can give would be appreciated.
