CURTIS, Harris George

Harris George Curtis was one of Shiocten's early settlers arriving in 1854. His father arrived shortly after that. H.G. Curtis was a published poet and the University Library in Appleton has two volumes of his book. He was postmaster and brought the first horses into the area. In the book "Shadow of the Wolf" he wrote a eloquent piece about the early settler women that was quite forward thinking.... He wrote a section about Shiocten/Bovina in the old book "History of Outagamie County" He passed away in 1914 in Appleton. Scan of his obit.
