I saw that you had discussed some of the Tuten family in FL. Did you have family around Tallahassee in the 1860's? I have a letter written in 1866 from a cousin in Tallahasee to George Washington Tuten in Beaufort District. I think the signature is Joseph M. Tuten. In the letter he mentioned settling affairs in the death of his brother A(?).B.Tuten on Sept. 21, 1866. He also mentions P.M. Tuten, McAlpin and a Bill? in Jasper who was a storekeeper and Clerk of Court. He shares news of a Henry in Texas who has passed and mentions Hamp's family in Vixburg, Tennessee (his spelling) and Elmira. He also talks about a T.P. Tuten and little Tim. I think these are Rachel's sons. In this letter he mentions caring for his mother who is 78 and in good health. Do these ring any bells?
I only have family trees for my direct lineage and not any of the cousins' lines. These may be descendents of a brother of Absolum Green Tuten. I'd like to know what the connection was between George Washington Tuten and Joseph M. Tuten.
Tony, I'm interested in your collection of family information if you will email the details to me.
