I live in Gladstone, Oregon. I'm the grandson of Virginia L. Tuten (Rutz) whom was maried to a Tuten. I was born into the Tuten name but was later adopted by my current father after realizing my biological father ran out on me. I was simply wondering where the Tuten's originated. Was it Germany or Russia? I've heard both and I don't know which is correct. Aslo, if any of you know who Joseph Tuten, Son of Virginia Tuten, could you be kind enough as to give me some sort of hint of his location?
