For week 2, I'm writing about James Curtis Atkinson, my great-great grandfather. He was the grandfather of MY grandfather, Charles W. Atkinson.
I think of James Curtis as an anomaly because he was born in the panhandle of West Virginia. He went west into Delaware County Ohio as a child with his parents, George and Susannah (Faris) Atkinson, but later, after he had married and had a few children, he and his wife, Sarah Jane (Kimmins) Atkinson, moved EAST, to Washington County, Pennsylvania. My Atkinson family has been in Washington County from then on -- I still have cousins from that line who live in the Canonsburg area.
