Looks like he moved to Tippecanoe County Indiana, what I find interesting is that Asa and Priscilla (or Prescilla) on the 1860 Census are shown like you mentioned in Indiana but if you look at where Asa stated he was born was Ohio and not North Carolina. However, in 1900 Census Frank Tuttle's family which shows living in Illinois and Asa assuming that his father is shown on the census. Frank was probably taking care of his father who was 72 years old.
Do you also know if Asa Tuttle was married previously in North Carolina? I found a North Carolina 1850 Census showing a wife of Ann Tuttle with either Asa mother Mary or his Mother-in-law. I didn't not find any type of divorce or widow records prior too Asa moving to Indiana.
However I did find a 1872 Marriage document for Charles Tuttle with his father listed on the document see below.
Please see location of Asa Tuttle burial. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/169027415/asa-tuttle
Additionally, I would reach out to the Tippecanoe County Historical society or state archives for additional records pertaining to regiment.
Do you know the 40th Indiana Infantry Has him on the rolls as a recruit. Tuttle, Asa – Drafted 9/28/64 – Mustered out 7/14/65
Also is it possible that he registered in North Carolina or Ohio at the beginning of the war and then when he moved to Indiana he was recruited by the 40th Indiana Regiment. I do not see any other records for him on Ancestry,com

VA Pension Death 1909: Please see remarks section that states Momenca, Illinois, this is where Asa was living when he passed away at his son Franks house in Illinois.

Dear Mr. Tuttle,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Indexes to the Carded Records of Soldiers Who Served in Volunteer Organizations During the Civil War, 1899 - 1927 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762 - 1917 (Record Group 94) that includes a
digitized index card titled Tuttle, Asa - Unit: 40th [Indiana] Infantry, Company D. We also searched the Carded Records Showing Military Service of Soldiers Who Fought in Volunteer Organizations During the American Civil War, 1890 - 1912 in Record Group 94 but were unable to locate a file for Asa Tuttle of the 40th Indiana Infantry since the records have not been microfilmed or digitized. For more information, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, we located the Population Schedules for the 1860 Census; Population Schedules for the 1870 Census Tenth Census of the United States; and Population Schedules for the 1900 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29). The 1860 and 1870 census records are not digitized yet. Some of the 1900 census records for Illinois are digitized but not those for Iroquois County where Middleport lies. For access to the non-digitized records, please contact RDT1.
