We have traced our branch of the Crissey family to Alva(h) and Julia Ann Tuttle but cannot find where and exactly when Alvah was born, or to whom he was born. An account by one of his sons, Steven, states he was born in Scotland, but an 1850 census record states, “New York’” as his place of birth. Believe he held property in Mt. Pleasant, Westchester County, NY. His Headstone in Chatham (Illinois) cemetery, indicates he died nearby, 1860.
