Biography of John W. Tuttle


Tuttle, John W., Newstead, p. o. Akron, is the youngest child in a family of four children. His parents were Milo and Abigail (Davis) Tuttle of Darien, Genesee county, N. Y., where John W. was born in 1831. His father was a native of Connecticut and his mother was born at Le Roy, Genesee county, N. Y. Milo Tuttle came to Genesee county in 1820 and in the early part of his life followed the business of carpenter and builder. In 1834 they moved to Newstead, where Mr. Tuttle bought a farm and followed that occupation until 1849, when he returned to Darien and lived there until his death, which occurred in 1872. His wife died in 1846 while a resident of the town of Newstead. John W. Tuttle was brought up in Newstead and attended the old Blackmore district school south of Akron village. At the age of nineteen he learned the blacksmith's trade, which he followed for thirty-five years. In 1882 Mr. Tuttle engaged in mercantile business in Akron, continuing until 1894, and since that time has not been in active business. In 1863 he enlisted in the 116th N. Y. Vols., Co. B, and served his country well, being promoted to sergeant, then to second lieutenant and a little later to first lieutenant, and finally to captain, and served as such until his discharge. Mr. Tuttle is a member of the G. A. R. and R. T. of T.
