I am doing research for a history of my small hometown of Higbee, Mo., and noticing your query re a Lewis Tutt I wanted to advise that I've run across that name in my newspaper scans, etc., in Howard and Randolph Co's, MO. I'm thinking that some are white and some black, as through the years I've heard mention of black people of that name, as I recall. Our area is part of Missouri's 'Little Dixie,' and had a large number of slaves, thus my mentioning race. Lewis Tutt sounds familiar from my reading.

Thanks for the info that's interesting for a couple of reasons. There is some indication that some of of Lewis' family did migrate to Missouri. I know his son Joseph,my GGrandfather stayed in Kentucky. Secondly, I've ran across reference's to African American Tutts before. Our state of orgin is Virginia and Tutts were probably slave holders. There is a Brack Tutt buried next to my GGrandfather listed as "negro". If have access to additional information about the Missouri Lewis, I'd appreciate it. Thanks

Hi Steve,

My name is Terri Tutt and my Grandmother (Hattie Elizabeth Watson Tutt) married at Lewis Tutt, I am not sure if this is the same person but I have seen a picture of him, he was light skinned with very nice hair, a slender build. My grandmother was from Harrisonburg, VA and relocated to Washington, DC.

I'm not a Tutt descendant or researcher, but rather am gathering material for a book on my hometown of Higbee, Randolph Co, MO. Thru the years I heard the Tutt name mentioned, primarily regarding black people of that name, and a few months ago I exchanged emails with a man of the Tutt name who is white and apparently connected to those who settled in Howard Co, MO just below Randolph and which the latter was carved from in l828 or so.
Since "talking" to him I found mention of an older Tutt man, Lewis I believe was the given name, who lived at the village of Estill, just north of New Franklin, in Howard Co., and supposedly had the distinction of being the oldest/longest serving postmaster in MO.
I'm sorry but I have files and piles of material and can't put my fingers on that item at the moment, but you might want to investigate Howard Co census from l840 or so on; many of our area's settlers came from KY.

That's interesting. Probably not my GG-grandfather. He would have died before the turn of the 20 century. A branch of out Tutt line did make their way to MO. The Virginia Tutt's were gentryed landowner, and therefore, unfortunately, probably salveholders as well. Consequently, there are a number of African American Tutt's. thanks for your reply
