Jonathan B. Tuttle’s name appears on Vienna's Soldiers and Sailors Monument, dedicated in 1889. Yet the information that he was a member of Company A of the 124th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and that he died in 1863 in Tennessee, cannot be verified in rosters and histories of that regiment.

Nevertheless, news of Tuttle's death was published in the Western Reserve Chronicle on April 1, 1863 (page 2; see upper right).

Tuttle's brothers Albert P. Tuttle, Osman B. Tuttle, and William S. Tuttle also served in the Civil War.
