Re: Tutwilers in Alabama
As far as I know, Carter Bibb Tut. Jr. had three brothers. Don't know anything else about them except for their names. His parents were Carter Bibb Tutwiler Sr. b. 7 Sep 1882 in Tx. d. Aug 1975 (where??) and Addie b. 1888 in Ohio. (Any info you can fill in would be appreciated) Carter Bibb Tut. Sr. was the son of Bowie Strange Tut. b. 10 Sep 1848 in Palmyra, Fluvanna Co., Va. d. 20 Sep 1888 in LaGrange, Fayette Co., Tx. and Sarah Carter b. 1858 Va. When Bowie died, daughter,Harriet, was sent to live with uncle Edward Magruder Tutwiler in Birmingham, Al. Don't know what happened to Carter and his brothers, Thomas Harrison and Bowie Jr.. I believe that it was Ed. Mag. Tut that built the Tutwiler Hotel. Bowie Strange Tutwiler was the son of Thomas Harrison Tutwiler and Harriet Magruder Strange....this would be our common ancestor....my direct line comes from Bowie's younger brother, Eli Erskine Tutwiler...my great grandfather. I can take you back quite a ways on the Tutwiler line if you would like. The Tutwilers came from the German sector of Switzerland around 1753.
Let me know what you want and I will try and answer questions. E mail or through this site is fine.
