Bowie Strange Tutweiler Sr
I am working on theCarter family in Fayette Co,TX. Bowie Strange Tutwilermarried Sarah Carter, dau of Philemon Bibb and Martha Motley Carter of Virginia.They married in Fayette County Texas ca1876.
srah and Bowie had 3 children andare listed on the 1880 Fayette Co TX census under B S Tutweiler. children are Bowie, Hattie(Harriet?) and unreadable male that I think is Carter b 1877. The family story is that Mr Tutweiler was shot and killed accidentally during a sports outing by one of his friends. Apparently the children are sent to live with relatives but Sarah keeps Carter and eventually married John J Casey about 1882. John , Sarah and Carter turn up in Georgia in 1900 census as Fannie, not Sarah and Carter as a Casey. In 1910 census Sallie and John Casey are in Birmingham AL. There are many typos and wrong dates in census but do not let it deter you. This is the right family.Carter Tutweiler has lots of Carter relatives in Texas but none living in Fayette County. My great Grandmother was sister to Sarah Carter who married Tutweiler. I am glad to know the children were raised and the tragedy ended happily. Linda
