From Book: A History of Southern Illinois: A Narrative Account of Its Historical Progress, Its People, and Its Principal Interests, Volume 2, by George Washington Smith, Lewis Publishing Company, 1912 - Illinois - 1717 pages: "LEWIS B. TUTHILL. One of the able young legal practitioners of the Union county bar, who is also proprietor of the largest insurance business in the county and owner of a valuable farm, is Lewis B. Tuthill, who has not allowed himself to be tied down to one occupation, but has shown his versatility by succeeding as an agriculturist, in his profession and as a business man."
"Mr. Tuthill's family is well known in Anna, and he was born in this city, July 20, 1880, a son of Harlan P. Tuthill and Emma S. (Hubbard) Tuthill. Harlan P. Tuthill was born November 2, 1842, in Virginia, Illinois, and as a young man studied law and entered the insurance field, building up the largest business of its kind in Union county. He subsequently became cashier of a private bank of which C.M. Willard was the owner, but later took a like position with the First National Bank, where he remained for nineteen years."
"A stanch Republican, Mr. Tuthill was active in the ranks of his party here and served for a number of years as city attorney of Anna. He was also active in the work of the Presbyterian church, and at the time of his death, which occurred November 2, 1909, was serving in the capacity of deacon."
"In 1877 Mr. Harlan Tuthill was united in marriage with Miss Emma S. Hubbard, a native of Ohio, and she still survives her husband and makes her home at Anna. They had these children: Russell Tuthill, a graduate of Hanover College, class of 1902, who is unmarried and engaged in agricultural pursuits at Tamms, Illinois; Lewis B. Tuthill Jr; and Sophronia D., Tuthill who attended the Wilson College, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, and now lives in Anna with her mother."
"Lewis B. Tuthill received his early education in the public schools of Anna, and later entered Illinois State University, Champaign, being graduated from the law and literary departments thereof, with the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Law in 1904. While at college he was a member of the Phi Delta Theta and Phi Delta Phi fraternities, and during 1903 had the honor of being manager of the football team. After completing his collegiate course he came to Anna, where he engaged in the practice of his profession, subsequently going into the insurance business with his father, whom he eventually succeeded."
"Mr. Tuthill now has the largest business of its kind in the county, and represents ten fire insurance companies, one life insurance company, one employers’ liability company, one bonding company and one livestock insurance company. He is a director of the First National Bank of Anna and of the Anna Lumber Company, and owns 120 acres of excellent farming land in Union county, having twenty acres of apples, six of strawberries and one of pie plant. This farm is now rented and yields him good returns. Mr. Tuthill inherits his father's business ability, and to this he has added the enthusiasm that is only possessed by those who are in love with their work. That he has succeeded in all of his ventures is not surprising, for progressive ideas, coupled with inherent business acumen and a spirit of industry are conducive to success in any line."
"In 1904, Mr. Lewis Tuthill was married to Miss Leeta DeWolf, of Prairie City, Iowa, and one daughter was born to this union: Mary DeWolf, born January 15, 1907. Mrs. Tuthill is a member of the Presbyterian church, while her husband, although not a member of any especial denomination, supports all creeds liberally."
Emma's original family line ancestor is John Tuthill 1635-1717 of Southold, Suffolk County, New York. A beautiful old 1870's CDV image of a Emma Tuthill in her twenties.
