Biography written by DONALD EDWARD PARK (1934-2014), with edits by Evelyn Park Blalock. Please do not publish elsewhere without providing full and proper credit. Thank you.

Enos Tuttle (Jr) was born 7 Aug 1762 at New Haven, Connecticut, and died near Memphis, Indiana, in February 1843. Enos and his wife, Candace Hotchkiss, were married on 5 May 1783 at New Haven, Connecticut. The Clark County Cemetery Preservation Committee refers to the Tuttle Cemetery, located near Bowery Cemetery, as the resting place for both Enos and Candace Tuttle. The Tuttle Cemetery is located on the site of Enos Tuttle's farm, which was very near Bowery Cemetery and the original Bowery Methodist Church.

Enos Tuttle (Jr), who resided during the American Revolution at New Haven, Connecticut, assisted in establishing American Independence, while acting in the capacity of a Private Militia man on three separate tours of duty as follows.

1. Enlisted 4 Jul 1779 to 4 Jan 1780 as a Private in Captain Gideon Todd's Company, Colonel William Lyon's Regiment, Connecticut Line.

2. Enlisted 1 Aug 1780 to Feb 1781 as a Private in Captain Samuel Osborn's Company, Colonel Samuel Fitch's Regiment, Connecticut Line.

3. Enlisted Jun 1781 to Sep 1781 as a Private in Captain Hezekiah Bassett's Company, Colonel Samuel Fitch's Regiment, Connecticut Line.

Enos was engaged in the defense of the town of New Haven, Connecticut, when the British attacked on 6 Jul 1779. His duty involved guarding the towns of New Haven, West Haven, and Milford Point, Connecticut, from the incursions and depredations of the British and Tories.

After the war, Enos was granted 100 acres of land under Revolutionary War bounty land warrant number 6579.

From Records of Clark County, Indiana:

1. On 10 Aug 1819, William Ferguson sold to Enos Tuttle for $250.00, 131 acres in Grant # 191.

2. On 16 Mar 1824, Enos Tuttle to Lewis Tuttle, 100 acres in Grant # 236.

3. On 21 Aug 1835, Lewis Tuttle to Enos Tuttle for $30.00 and in consideration of love and affection, which the said Lewis has for the said Enos and Candessia (Candace) his father and mother.

4. Enos Tuttle did not leave a will.

A diagram of the Tuttle Family Cemetery was prepared in 1989. My father, Donald Edward Park (1934-2014), attempted to find the headstones for Enos and Candace Tuttle. He could not find them, but he was able to find the headstones for Solomon and Nancy Tuttle. To reach the cemetery, take Exit 16 off I-65, travel about 1 mile down the old Blue Lick Road, and look for a grassy hill next to the road just past Bowery Cemetery. At the time of this photo, the cemetery was buried in weeds and fallen branches.
