Notes for James Crabtree Dew,Sr.:
James Crabtree Dew, Sr. settled Monroe Township, Perry County with his brother-in-law, John McDonald.
He was born in 1787, so he would have been about 27 or 28 at the time. This information taken from the
Perry County History book.
I got information from the 1850 and 1860 Perry County, Ohio Census Records at the O.G.S. Library in Mansfield, Ohio. The 1860 one lists James and Lydia as in their 70's and with domestics, Jason and Maymaid Powell, ages both as 21. Thomas and his family are listed as their neighbors. Also, there is a cardfile at O.G.S. Library by a Maureen De Haan of Wadsworth, Ohio.
According to the Tuttle family history, James Crabtree Dew, Sr. was married before he married Lydia. At this time, we do not have a name or information on this marriage.

Ann Wade - updated July 1999.



Notes for Lydia A nn Tuttle:
Lydia Tuttle born May 10,1800 and died Feb.25,1879 Perry County, Ohio.
The dates on Lydia Ann Tuttle Dew are from Kristina Williams - Feb. 12, 1999.

According to the Tuttle family history given to me by Mona Dew Byrd and given to her by James Dew
and her brother, Ellis Dew, Lydia Ann Tuttle was the "second" wife of James Crabtree Dew,Sr. - Ann Wade - March 1999.
They are buried in Dew Cemetery.
Lydia's parents are:CAPTAIN SOLOMON TUTTLE, born Sept.13,1757 in Salisbury, Conn., died Nov. 30, 1830 in Athens County, Ohio. Married in 1777 to DEBORAH STRONG . Deborah born April 12,1760 in Athens County, Ohio and died 1814 in Athens County. The parents of Solomon Tuttle are: CAPTAIN
THOMAS TUTTLE, born Nov.15, 1730 in New Haven, Conn., died after 1796 in Brandon, Vermont. He
married LYDIA OWEN on Feb.1,1753. She was born 1732 in New Haven, Conn.. Captain Thomas Tuttle
and Captain Solomon Tuttle, his son, came from Salisbury, Conn. to Brandon, Vt. before the Revolutionary War. Captain Thomas took an active part in the defense of the town against the Tories
and Indians. Solomon entered the service in May 1775, in Capt. Peleg Southerlands Company and was
at the taking of vessels on or at the outlet of Lake Champlain. Solomon served as a Minute Man up-
wards of three years. In November 1779 he was taken prisoner by the Indians. They took him to Canada and the next Spring, gave him to the British who took him to Montreal where there was a number
of Tories. After having lain in irons for 7 months, they were removed but he was kept in close confine-
ment until they were regularly exchanged. He was in captivity for one year, nine months, and three
days. Solomon Tuttle and family, and brother Nyal, and William Morrow and family, and Joseph Snow-
den and his wife, Margaret and family came with a group of pioneers, in 1798, from Bennington, Vermont
and Torrington, Connecticut, by way of Marietta (called Adelphia) to locate in Middletown (Athens), Ohio.
Athens was settled in 1796. The men left their families with the Snowdens in Middletown (Athens) and
went to scout the lands to the north on which to build their homes. This area was known to have Black-
foot, Shawnee, and Chippewa Indians on the plains west of the river (Hocking River). About two miles
eastward along the eastern branch of what they named Sunday Creek, near what is now Bishopville, the
Tuttles, with the help of Morrow, staked their claims, cut their timbers and built a three room log house.
They were about 45 miles from Zanesville (which was the Ohio State Capital, 1811-1812 ). The Tuttles
helped stake out another section west of Bishopville on Sunday Creek located by the present covered
bridge, for William Morrow. They built the same type of log house for him and his family. Then, they
returned by the way of the Forks (Glouster) and returned to Middletown (Athens) where they gathered
together their families and all their belongings and retraced their steps back to their new homes.
