      Research notes from Howell Cosby Curtis

      James Curtis, s/o Thomas and Averilla, married to 1.) Elizabeth Obert and 2.) Elizabeth Vause. I believe these two ladies are one and the same. Elizabeth Obert was the posthumous child of Bertram Obert and his second wife Anne. Soon after Bertram Obert died Anne married John Vause. John Vause's will mentions children Constance, Diana and John Jr. There is no mention of a daughter Elizabeth. Boddie. Southern Historical Families. 12. 81-82.
