CURTIS McCLUER was born in January 1851 to Samuel C. McCluer and Lucretia Fawcett at Nutchell in Dardenne, St. Charles County, Missouri (Duncan 1983:113; 1900 Census #176). He was away in 1868, but by 1870 farmed in St. Charles County. By 1876 he lived near the old homestead. Curtis joined Dardenne Presbyterian Church (May 29, 1875). Later he served as a church trustee. In 1894 Curtis lived at Harvest Home, 6 miles south of O’Fallon, with his mother, brother (Arthur) and sister (Henrietta [Letter L McCluer to L Fawcett 3/5/1894). His brother, Robert, had joined their household in Dardenne by 1900 (Census #176/178). Elmer Berthold, a later resident of Dardenne, believes Curtis McCluer also lived at Nutshell for awhile. Curtis McCluer married Laura Weber (1873- ) in about 1902 at Dardenne Presbyterian church (Watson 1977:173). Curtis farmed at Dardenne. Curtis and Laura lived alone on Dardenne Road at their farm (1910 Census #156). They did not have any children. Curtis and Laura transferred to O'Fallon Presbyterian Church, then rejoined Dardenne Church on September 30, 1916. Curtis McCluer died in 1922 and is buried in the Dardenne Presbyterian cemetery (Watson 1977:350-57).
