John Tussey, Pvt.

John Tussey lived in the Porter area of Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania. Tussey mountain could very well have been named after this gentleman or his namesake.

In 1778 he is serving at Fort Roberdeau. He continued on in the area, helping in the war effort. In 1781 John Tussey is taxed for his horse, but no other livestock are listed.

His son John B. was born in 1789.

We believe John Tussey lived in the area until his death.
