Thanks once again Dick. I don't think that Theodoris would be his sister although I have seen Nuttall written in many peculiar ways, including "Tuttle". It may be of course that he arrived in Colchester between the 1860 census and the time he joined the Union Army. If you ever do come across any information I shall be grateful to receive it. For instance, are there any lists of workers at the coal mines at that time?
