bullet  Research Notes:

Quotation from the little Souris History book:

"Jerry Curtain and his wife, the former Mary McBurney were married in Ontario and came west to Souris. Mary was the only sister of Alf, Watt, and Joe McBurney. In 1903 Jerry bought the S 1/2 of 12-7-22 where Les Morden's now live. Jerry died in 1913 and his brother-in-law Watt (Walter) continued to do the farming until 1917, working for Mary. Mary returned to Ontario and died in the 1950's (in Kincardine). The Curtains had no children."
