      also with Joseph Carter (9) in the alarm to relieve Fort William Henry in 1757. He was a representative several times to the General Court and in 1788 was a member of the convention that ratified the Constitution of the United States at Hartford. He was appointed Ensign of the 2d Company or Train Band of Kent, 1770; Lieutenant of same, 1772; Capt. of the 7th Co., 4th Regt., 1775; and Major of one of the six battalions which were raised by the state in 1778.

      Major Curtis was in the battle at Danbury, and caught General Wooster as he fell from his horse in that battle. He was also present at the surrender of Burgoyne in 1777, an interesting account of which he gives in a journal kept by him and still preserved by a descendant, Wallace K. Curtiss, residing (1909) in Torrington,Ct. The article was published in the Hartford Courant Aug. 12, 1908.
