Looking for information and descendants of Leonard R. Tuttle and Emily Fidelia Howe Tuttle.I do not have a lot of information, and I will do the best to supply what I have.
Leonard was born in New York about 1820, the son of Daniel Tuttle and Eunice Carpenter Tuttle.Emily was also born in New York about the same time, probably in Oneida County, the daughter of Unknown Howe and Emily Blinn Howe.
The best guess is that the Blinn family moved to Delaware, Delaware County, Ohio about 1840.It is presume that Leonard and his family may have come at the same time.
There are conflicting records as to when Leonard and Emily were married.Depending on which record you are checking, they were married October 19, 1839 or November 20, 1839 in Delaware County, Ohio.It has also been reported that they were married in Camden, Oneida County, New York and Springfield, Clark County, Ohio.At least the year is consistant.
Leonard and Fidelia were known to be living in Springfield, Ohio in 1851.The 1860 census for 3rd ward of Spingfield, Clark County, Ohio shows the following:

Belle may be a nickname for Isabelle.It has been reported that there is one more child who was born after the 1860 census, a daughter named Lucy or Lucille.
When Emily's aunt died in 1863, they were still in Springfield.However, when Emily's mother died about 1871, she is mentioned in the will as Emily F. Tuttle of Delaware, Ohio.There is no mention of Leonard, so it is presumed that Leonard died sometime during this eight year span.Perhaps Emily moved back to Delaware to care for her mother?
To date, no burial locations have been located for anyone.Perhaps someone knows of this family and can assist me.I would really enjoy finding decendants from this line.
Any information would be greatfully appreciated.Thank you in advance for any assistance in this matter.
