Article regarding the suicide of Moses Curts, published in the New Albany Daily Standard on 11/15/1871, page 4, column 3.

"On Friday, evening last, Mr. Moses Curts, a respected, influential citizen of Scott township, Harrison county, committed suicide by hanging. His family left him at home, as well as usual, on Friday morning, and went to a house raising in the neighborhood. In the evening his wife returned and found him absent, as she supposed, but thought nothing strange of that, expecting that he would return in the night. Not coming home at night, however, search was made for him in the morning, when his body was found hanging in the smoke house a few feet from the door of his residence. No cause is known for the commission of the horrible deed. He leaves a wife and children, who are much respected in their neighborhood."

Buried: Breeden Burying Ground, Harrison County, Indiana
