Deceased was the wife of henry Tuttle and only surviving daughter of Jacob and Avis Miller. She was born in Franklin County, O., January 11th, 1830 and departed this life at her home near Williamsport, Ind., on Thursday, August 2d, 1900, aged 70 years, 6 months, and 21 days. Deceased was united in marriage to Henry Tuttle March 4, 1849, and for over 51 years, they traveled together life's path. No children were ever born to them. The mother of Mrs. Tuttle died at this place in December 1868 over 31 years ago, and her father about 14 years ago in 1886. Mr. and Mrs. Miller with their daughter, Avis A., came to warren county, Ind., in the summer of 1835, and her husband came August 1, 1848. She had been a resident of this county over 65 years. Preceding her death, Mrs. Tuttle had been ill one year and seven months, from nervous prostration, which is believed to be the result of la grippe. In belief Mrs. Tuttle was a spiritualist and never connected herself with any religious denomination. In this belief she died. For 35 years she and her husband lived on the farm where she died, near this place. She was known as a good and kind neighbor and was always ready to assist those in need or trouble. During her illness, she was a great sufferer, but was patient. When death, like a good angel, released her from the bonds of this life, she was ready and anxious to go, and she passed out into the realms of the spirit life to be welcomed by the loved ones who had preceded her. The funeral services were conducted at the Presbyterian church on Sunday, August 4, 1900, at 10 o'clock a.m., Rev. William Wilmer delivering the funeral discourse. Interment was made in Hillside Cemetery in the family lot. The attendance of relatives and friends was large.
