US Lookup Requests / Re: John Todd Tuttle Physician

Hi Collette,  Reply #3 from dettori,  detorri is right --  definitely one to ponder !   

On familysearch pilot site,   the 1850  in New York City w/ Sarah, Ida and Margaret Tuttle,   John "Little"  age 17 is  indexed and comes up as "Tuttle" .  The surname is ditto's down and would seem that "Geo" and "Chas" are "Tuttle" also. 

It's a bit difficult to read and even more annoying is that the relationships between members of the household are not clear.

You might want to take a look at the actual image and see what you make of it.

popping in quickly from work ---  couldn't help myself...  the only thing I can do right now is a geography question!

Paw Paw  still exists  --  now in Lee Co.  but maybe at an earlier time was part of De Kalb Co. which is adjacent.  Paw Paw looks to right on the county line.  So within miles of Shabbona and could be considered as a connections.   Paw Paw named for the tree of the same name which grows in that area.

1880 Shabbona, De Kalb, Illinois

John Archer        65  (1815)  b.  England Both Parents b. England   Farmer
Elizabeth Archer 70 (1810)   b.  England Both Parents b. England   Keeping House
Rebecca Archer   32 (1848)   b. England  Both Parents b. England  Widow  "Something other than direct relationship" Keeping House      Is she a DIL  or a Niece In Law ???
Son Charles Archer 10  b. IL   but says mother (Elizabeth) b. Pennsylvania  (that's the transcription)
Son Arthur Archer 6 IL
Son Guy Archer 5 IL
???  Mina Archer 3 IL   "something other than direct relationship"
Son John Archer 3M  IL

Sorry I can't see the actual scan on A.........Y  but you need to look at the original scan for this   --  something wrong with this transcription, maybe? or something "off" with the family unit.   All the children say John is the father but Elizabeth is mother ???  but says mother b. in Pennsylvania.  Why is Mina's relationship is "vague".   
I think Rebecca would have to be the mother is Elizabeth's age @ 70 is correct and these are John's grandchildren ???
