Eli Tuttle: Farmer; born August 18, 1828, at Sandy Creek, Oswego County, New York; the son of John Tuttle, who was born in Connecticut, April 7, 1783, died September 29, 1876, and Betsy E. (Hurd) Tuttle, a native of Connecticut, born August 1, 1793, died December 13, 1868. Ebenezer Tuttle, who was born in 1738 and died in England in 1778, was his great-grandfather, and Eli Tuttle, born in 1758, died in 1792, his grandfather. His maternal grandfather was Joseph Hurd, a native of Connecticut. John Tuttle was married in 1812, settled on a farm at Sandy Creek and raised a family of eleven children. Mr. Eli Tuttle came to Medina Township November 15, 1856, and first worked by the month on a farm. He afterward rented for seven years, and finally bought a farm on Section 18. He served as Constable of the township twenty-eight years; was Justice of the Peace eight years, and, during the War of the Rebellion, acted as Provost Marshal of Medina Township, passing through some very exciting experiences. At a later date he moved to Dunlap, where he bought land and built a house and a cheese factory, both of which he afterward sold. He now owns several houses in Dunlap.

Eli Tuttle was married to Caroline E. Robinson, at Sandy Creek, March 25, 1854, and they have one child, William H. Tuttle, born October 30, 1862, who was educated at the Northwestern University and is now practicing law in Chicago. He married Caroline Skinner, by whom he has two children, Helen B. and Charles B. Caroline E. (Robinson) Tuttle, the daughter of Hiram and Elvira (Morgan) Robinson, was born at Sandy Creek, New York, September 29, 1829, and died September 2, 1894. Her father died while on his way to the West many years ago, and her mother at their home in Sandy Creek, New York.
