John W. TUTT Biography

Ann Caroline TUTT was born in 1802 in Edgefield Co, South Carolina. Her
father was Richard Benjamin TUTT Sr (called Old Ben) and her mother was
Rachel LYON. She was called Annie by many members of the family. She
married Lewis Lundford WYATT in Lawrence Co, Tn on 26 Oct 1824. We have
not been able to learn when or where she died but she died before Lewis
did. Her maternal grandfather was James LYON of Edgefield Co, SC. Her
paternal grandparents are unproven and her maternal grandmother has not
been identified.

My 3rd great grandfather, Richard Benjamin TUTT Jr (called R.B.) was
Annie's brother.

William A. WYATT---A prominent resident of Richland township,
has added greatly to thee agricultural regions of Searcy County.  
A native of Warren County, Mo. born 2 Oct 1828 , a son of
Lewis L. & Caroline TUTT WYATT, natives of Ky & Tenn., respectively,
their marriage probably took place in the latter State.  At an early day
they removed to Mo. first locating in Warren Co. but in 1843 took up
residence in Searcy Co. Ar.     The farm is 1 and 1/2 miles from the
mouth of Richland Creek which at that time was little improved. The
father died on his land in 1846.  He was a soldier of the 1812 War, life
long farmer, honest, industrious and well -to -do.     He had  one
brother and one sister , both dieing in Warren Co. Mo. the latter was
wife of James BLAND.  Their father died when they were young and
their mother married Hedgeman ANDERSON, both died in Warren Co Mo.
both being early settlers there.  The grandfather, Richard TUTT
probably removed from Tenn. to Marion Co. Ar. and became a
resident when it was thickly inhabited  by Indians.  He died at
Yellville before the war.   ( ? Civil War?)      William A. was one of the
children born to his parents,  Delcina, of Searcy co. the widow of
James JAMISON; William A.; John of Searcy co; Frank who died in this
county ; Serena, wife of  Hugh RIDDLE, of Newton Co.  and Margaret  who
died in Searcy Co . wife of Henry ETHRIDGE.  Almost the entire
life of William A. was spent on the farm.  Owing to the scarecity of
schools in his youth  his advantages were very meager and amounted to
about  3 months all told.    He has been on this farm since he was15
years old.       At the age of 18 he joined  Co. E  under Capt. PELHAM,
of an Arkansas  command  stationed at Ft. Gibson & months
fighting  Indians.     He was discharged  at Fort Wayne, I.T. ( Indian
Territory.)      He returned home where  he married 4 Jan 1853   Louisa E.
HENSLEY.  daughter of John M. & Mary HENSLEY, who came from Tenn. many
years ago and settled on Bear Creek. Mr HENSLEY was a captain in the
Confederate Army and died while a Prisoner of war  in St. Louis , Mo.
He was a well- to - do farmer and  merchant, his widow still servives
(after 1874).  Mr. WYATT lived some years on Bear Creek, but
during he war  spent time in Springfield, Mo.    He returned home and
spent some time on the old home farm then began selling goods in
Marshall. He was there about ten years, since then he has been
successfully managing his about  800 acres. His land is the best in
the area  and in  different tracks.  He has been a life long Democrat and
in 1874 represented Searcy Co. in the State Constitutional Convention. A
member of Campbell Lodge No. 115. of Marshall, Ark. A. F.& A. M. , is a
patron of all movements tending to develop and improve his section and
is considered a leading  substancial citizen of the community.  He is a
first cousin of United States Senator George G. WEST  of Mo.
Mrs. WYATT was born in Wayne Co. Tenn. and has born her husband seven
children.  Emma C.  wife of Thomas BAKER of Searcy Co.; Perry
LUNSFORD;  Mary Powhatan the deceased wife of James  M. CASH.;  Caroline
Pocahontas,  the deceased wife of  Jacob ARNOLD.; Lillie wife of William
TREADWELL, and Alice wife of Burtis BAKER. The two last mentioned were

Based upon the information that I found James F. TUTT was born in Woodford
County, KY in 1814. In the 1850 Census of Todd County, Kentucky a John W.
TUTT is listed as three years old. It looks like John W. TUTT grew-up to be
a successful business man and farmer. The records seem to indicate that
John W. is the son of James F. TUTT. The problem is that James F. TUTT is
not in the 1850 Census but his son is. What is also confusing is that a Jas
F. TUTT is in the 1850 Census as age 24 with a Val. of 1800. What does Val.
  mean? Thanks,
DL Tutt

The VAL. column in the 1850 census would mean Jas F. TUTT owns real estate
valued at $1800. There are often discrepancies in the ages recorded on a census
and the old handwriting can be difficult to read. There is a separate Slave
Schedule that gives the name of the slave owner and the age/sex/color of each
slave, unfortunately I don't have access to it at present. The annual tax lists
give limited information on the number of adult slaves. Often times a last will
and testament also gives some info. There is also some vital statistic data for
1850-1860's still available, listing male or female, date of birth and slave
owner's name some include the mother's name and child's name.
