Query: CURTIS of Hancock and Madison counties

CURTIS--Searching for any information about the family of my great-grandmother, Mary Elizabeth CURTIS (born March 1864 in Indiana, perhaps in Shelby County). She married William Euell JACKSON (born April 1857 in Indiana) on October 8, 1878 in Hancock County, Indiana. William E. (or U.) and Mary E. Jackson are in the 1880-1920 censuses in Center Township, Hancock County, and they had several children, including:

--Ora G. Jackson (born January 1880 in Indiana)
--male (born March 10, 1882 in Hancock County)
--female (born August 5, 1884 in Hancock County)
--male (born June 25, 1886 in Hancock County)
--Glen R. Jackson (born February 9, 1890 or 1891)--married Ruth N. NIGH on May 28, 1913 in Hancock County
--Gova Eva Jackson (born April 3 or 4, 1893 in Hancock County)--married James MUTERSPAUGH on March 27, 1911 in Hancock County
--Gladys Jackson (born November 19 or 20, 1895 in Hancock County)--married Everett KEMERLY on February 8, 1918 in Hancock County
--Hazel F. Jackson (born October 29, 1897 in Hancock County; died after 1910)
--Curtis D. Jackson (born June 13, 1907 in Hancock County; died after 1920)

Mary Elizabeth Curtis was the daughter of William H. Curtis (born October 1834 in Indiana; died 5 July 1910 in Center Township, Hancock County) and Elizabeth "Eliza" J. PENCE (born May 1829 in Indiana; died after January 1910). William (who was a minister and a farmer) and Eliza were in the 1860 and 1870 censuses in Madison County, Indiana and then were in Hancock County beginning with the 1880 census.

William and Eliza Curtis had several other children, including:
--James M. (born about 1854 in Indiana; died after 1870)
--Marion (born about 1856 in Indiana; died after 1870)
--Stephen N. (born about 1859 in Indiana)--married Emma D. OSBORN on August 5, 1882 in Hancock County
--Ruth Ann (born about 1865 in Indiana)--married John R. CUSTER (born about 1863) on October 14, 1885 in Hancock County
--Joseph Alvy Johnson (born about 1869 in Indiana; died April 15, 1889 in Center Township, Hancock County)

Any information about Mary Curtis' parents and siblings would be appreciated.
