I am trying to find the parents of Almira Curtis Smart, wife of Reuben Staples Smart. According to family history, she was born in Waldo County, the daughter of Capt Jacob Curtis of Hampden. According to her death certificate, her parents were John and Sally. She died in 1879 and is buried in Swanville.

Reuben and Almira's marriage intentions in Swanville call her "Miss Almira Curtis of Frankfort." The marriage and death records of some of her children indicate that Almira was born in Frankfort. And there were a John and Sally Curtis who lived in Frankfort, of the right age to be her parents. They were living there in 1850, and are buried in Wiswell Cemetery. Records indicate that John's wife was Sarah "Sally" Dwelley.

The will of Jacob Curtis of Hampden is here, and does not list Almira among his surviving children.
