I've researched my great-grandfather's death, and found him in the Dunkard Cemetery. Sidney Smith McCurdy was born in Illinois, came to Kansas, Arkansas, and then to Tillman County shortly after 1900. Also buried in the cemetery is Arleta Washburn (not Mashburn). She was the daughter of Enid McKinney and Cecil Washburn; granddaughter of Dollie M. McCurdy and Alex McKinney; great-granddaughter of Sidney Smith McCurdy. I have a great deal of research I would be happy to share.
