Adventure History

Tuttle traveled with the party on the Folsom/Sacramento route during the first train heist, but his appearance was not terribly memorable.

Bio:

Charles Tuttle (b. circa 1820) graduated from Hobart College in 1844 and was admitted to the bar in New York. The family comes from a prestigious Connecticut family which emigrated to the colony in the 1640s as a Puritan immigrant.

He crossed the Great Plains in 1849, and worked at Stony Bar. In 1850 he was pressed into service defending a friend at “miner’s court” and quickly realized that lawyering was going to be a lucrative profession.

He returned east in 1852 for his wife Maria L. (Batchhelder) Tuttle. They have two sons – Charles Jr b. May 1854 and Frederick Pierson b. Sep 1857
