Notes for William Lewis Tuttle
William Lewis and Sarah Emily settled in Clark Co, IN after their marriage. Henry Tuttle, brother of William Lewis married Mary Louisa Moore, sister of Sarah Emily 2/15/1866. These two families left Indiana in 1866 are arrived in Douglas Co, KS 4/2/1866. They bought adjacent farms at Blue Mound, near Vinland, Douglas Co, KS. The purchase of the farms was proabaly aided greatly by the fact that Isaac Prather, grandfather of the Moore girls gave the girls $3,000 each when they married. William Lewis' brothers Leonard and Dela also came to Kansas shortly after William Lewis and bought farms near Vinland. These young men were preceeded to the area by their uncle John Wesley Willey who settled at Blue Mound in 1857 and built a water powered saw mill on the Wakarusa River. William Lewis' farm stayed in the family until 1952.
