|101||1870 Census John Thurston Curtis NY|
Status: Located showing John Thurston Curtis living in South Otselic NY, Chenango County working as a subcontractor for railroad. (likely getting lumber for railroad ties…..as that is what his son Fred did in Kentucky and may have been what brought John T Curtis to Kentucky as railroad was built out reaching Somerset in 1877. Note that John Thurston Curtis is shown as owning $7,000 of real estate at this date.

|104||1873 Andrew Warren deed adds Waddle land Cave Spring to Colyer Farm purchased 1865.|
Deed description sounds like Andrew Warren added land further down Pitman creek that included the cave spring on current strawberry Rd totaling 175 acres to the John Colyer farm. Mathew Warren, his son had purchased some of the adjoining land that had been owned by Linsey R Colyer. Pulaski County Deeds 27-163
|105||1873 Financial Crisis railroad bankruptcies|
Why did John T Curtis come from McDonough NY to Waynesburg KY ? He was listed on 1870 NY census as a railroad subcontractor. Perhaps railroad failed and construction gone in NY. In Kentucky, Cinncinati was building a railroad funded with City money, not investor money. Financial depression centered on railroad failure perhaps caused him to follow the money.

Various Colyer property East Pulaski County Pitman Creek etc . Notice that Bluford(Buford) and Rebecca Colyer are next to the Haynes property that likely is current day Haynes Cemetery in Jugornot area of Pulaski County in Jugornot Hollow. Notice that on this 1874 list, it shows Charles Colyer (same as 1873 showing as John G Colyer which encourages my guess that his full name was Charles John Granade Colyer). Also note Alexander Colyer with about 500 acres that I guess is land currently all woods that is owned next to old Colyer/Warren Farm on Pitman Creek) later records shows next to Warren and Allen farm(current at Pitman creek and hwy 192) and next to Keeny property reflected on Civil War Map of Burnside this website.

|120||1879 Waynesburg KY map, Doublespring Baptist Church pastor, Reynolds family extract|
Reynolds family history book. Shows where John Thurston Curtis lived in Waynesburg on map 1879. Evidently renting place he purchased in 1880....see deed this site. Also shows that Doublespring Baptist Church pastor at time was John Singleton ("Sing") Reynolds and that JT Curtis as leader of church signs his eulogy tribute. Since this pastor Reynolds also had a saw mill as indicated in this research, and newspaper accounts 1882 this site show the Reynolds/Curtis saw mill moved to Waynesburg....I suspect JT Curtis in business with pastor or relative of pastor , Juey A Reynolds became his daughter in law by marrying his eldest son, Fred P. Curtis. From Juey obit on this site, shows sister named Bertha. Familysearch website shows Bertha father as Major "T"(Tilden) Reynolds. Major Tilden Reynolds was a cousin to John Singleton("Sing") Reynolds the pastor. So Fred P Curtis married daughter of Major Tilden Reynolds who was cousin to pastor John Singleton Reynolds

|128||1884 deed from Andrew Warren to Henry Warren 75 acres|
Trace of John Colyer home place deed that was sold to Andrew Warren....this is Andrew Warren transferring part to son Henry. Another 1884 deed to son William H Warren, transfers another 56 acres. Have not identified yet where other acres went to total the 200 sold by John Colyer to Andrew Warren. One son of Andrew Warren , Mathew, I have not found any land to him yet. Mathew who was first Ruth Ky postmaster, did purchase some acres across street from heirs of Alexander Colyer by court ordered auction. Not that road is referred to Rockcastle Springs Rd. Based on obituary of Charles Grenade Colyer in Somerset Republican paper 1910, it was later referred to as Sublimity Springs Rd. Earliest records refer to it as Salt Works Rd. After 1910 it was known as Ruth Rd and lately as hwy 192.

The log house built by John Langdon in 1814, purchased by John Colyer 1842, then purchased by Andrew Warren 1865. Andrew's son, Mathew(born 1859), evidently ran store across the road from the house. The store later became in 1888 the first post office in the community at current day hwy 192 at Pitman Creek in Somerset Ky. The first post office in 1888 known as Juno....later became Ruth Ky.

|139||1893 deed James Alexander Colyer heirs court ordered sale of modern day Clay Hill Rd Pitman Creek property to Mathew Warren and John Colyer|
This researcher has not determined which John Colyer this deed was to, but suspects it was John W Colyer, son of Linsey Randall Colyer by Elizabeth Warren. This John Colyer was raised in the home of Andrew Warren with his uncle Mathew Warren.
This property appears to be land next to Andrew Warren wooded section opposite Colyer/Warren house at Pitman creek that was purchased from John W Colyer Sr heirs in 1865. This land appears to be going along current Strawberry rd. Mathew Warren was an early postmaster of predecessor to Ruth Ky at store he ran at 192 intersection of Pitman creek.
