James Warwick Tuttle – not buried in Pond Springs

James Warwick TUTTLE’s headstone was enumerated in the 1964 transcription, but his stone could never be found.  Today, I found his death certificate (filed under “James Trittle”), which states that he was buried in Cedar Park Cemetery.  In researching on Find-A-Grave, there he is — in Cedar Park Cemetery.  The 1964 transcription, in this case, was incorrect.  The 1964 researchers were probably using word-of-mouth (or an old-timer’s memory), rather than actually seeing his stone.


Since I’ve done all this research, I may as well post it:

Born 24 February 1870 in Texas to William Harrison TUTTLE (born ca 1836 Indiana) and Dorothy  CLIFTON, the family can be found in the 1870 Lavaca County Texas census, where he is listed as “William”.  In the 1880 census, he is listed as “James W.”

James TUTTLE married Frances Alice SAWEY/SAWYER in Yoakum, Lavaca County TX on 5 November 1892, in a double-wedding with her sister Mary.  Alice was born 30 March 1867, died in Travis County Texas on 28 November 1941.  Her parents were James Andrew and Sueritha Juliette (McCORD) SAWEY/SAWYER.  Sometime after 1930, Alice married LB AKIN(S) per her death certificate (informant FB TUTTLE).  She is buried in Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Austin.

James and Alice TUTTLE had 5 children in the 1900 Lavaca County Texas census.  Although James Warwick TUTTLE died in Williamson County Texas on 26 February 1922, Alice is a widow with 4 children in the 1920 Travis County census.  I have yet to find the family in the 1910 census.

Known children of James W. and Frances Alice (SAWEY/SAWYER) TUTTLE:

i.  James Ishmael TUTTLE, born in Yoakum, Dewitt County, Texas (Yoakum is on the county line between Lavaca and Dewitt Counties).  Per the WWI Registration for James Ishmael TUTTLE, he was born 17 September 1892 and had grey eyes and Red hair.  Registered in Austin, Texas.  Per his death certificate, he was born in Sweet Home, Texas on 19 September 1892, married Wilma Grace _____.  He died in San Antonio Texas on 28 June 1946 and is buried in Benavides Texas.

ii.  Mary TUTTLE, born in Texas ca. 1894

  1. James Warrick Tuttle re-married to my great=grandmother Willie Lee Barnes. He had 3 children with her. My Walter Eugene was born approximately 1916. My grandfather and my aunt were twins. They were born 15 July 1919. James Clifford Tuttle was born a couple years later. James Warrick drove cattle from Mexico to Texas to make a living. He was kicked in the heart by a mule and died days later from a blood clot. These facts are all passed down through my grand father Charlie Travis Tuttle. Fun facts: Walter Eugene’s knickname was Punk. My grandfaathers knickname was Big Boy (he was 5’6″ but tough as nails. Charlie Travis Tuttle served with distinction in WW2. Five bronze stars, one silver star, good conduct medal, service in North Africa, Sicily, Salerno. In England trained for D-Day and was a soldier in the D-Day invasion. Battle of the bulge, and taking berlin was the last combat seen by him. When he returned from the war his brother punk had stolen his cattle along with his brother in laws cattle. His brother in law turned him in and he served prison time. Clifford served as an airborne medic in the pacific.

    Suzanne’s Note: James Warwick Tuttle was not buried in Pond Springs Cemetery, but rather was buried in Cedar Park Cemetery. However thanks again for this very interesting bio.

    • His correct middle name is “Warrick”. These Tuttles can be traced back to William Tuttle who immigrated to the U.S. in 1635. Of the three Tuttle families on the ship the Planter, William was a founder of New Haven Conn. His brother went to Boston and the third brother Symon is thought to have returned to England or Ireland and died there. Also descended from William are Aaron Burr who killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel and Eli Whitney.
