Tuttle, "The Early History of Morris County, New Jersey", Proceedings of the New Jersey Historical Society Vol. II (1870): 25, "About the time of his marriage, in 1756, he removed to Mount Pleasant, three miles west of Rockaway, for the purpose of managing his father-in-law’s iron works. Mr. Tuttle as the thrifty manager of a large forge property and real estate, once found himself to be a creditor to a considerable amount when the State Legislature made its worthless bills of credit a legal tender. This act of course reversed the course of nature, so that the strange sight was to be seen of debtors chasing down their creditors. Mr. Tuttle left the country as if he were a criminal ?eeing justice, and spent two years in the wilderness State of Kentucky to escape his too willing debtors! He has left many descendants who are among our most estimable people."
